    Do you know what high performing agile teams get up to in their time off? They use a lean process to build the largest lego set ever produced of course. In this talk we explore what happened to these intrepid engineers as they self-organised themselves into a lean, mean, lego-building machine. Along the way, exploring key concepts from lean software engineering including cycle-time and throughput, continuous process improvement, stopping the line, work-in-progress limits, Systems Thinking and the Theory of Constraints. So, have you ever been a child? Ever played with lego? Ever wondered what self-organisation and lean really look like? If so, come along and learn how Han Solo, Luke Skywalker and Chewie turned 5000 pieces of lego and a 300 page manual into a ship that can do the Kessel run in less than 10 parsecs… James Lewis is a Principle Consultant for ThoughtWorks based in the UK and a member of the ThoughtWorks Technical Advisory Board. Most recently he has been helping to introduce Agile at various blue chip companies: Investment Banks, Publishers and media organisations. Sometimes I even write software. James studied Astrophysics in the 90's but got sick of programming in Fortran. Fourteen years of DBA, Java development, software design and software architecture later, he believes that writing software is the easy part of the problem. Most of the time it's about getting people thinking right. Most recently, James has been spending his time helping ThoughtWorks' clients develop enterprise software as a coding architect and is particularly interested in the design of distributed systems and the web as middleware.

                      The Bathroom walls where built into the trailer frame first. My guess as to the reasoning, is so they could fasten the frame to the outer wall of the trailer, then apply the paneling to the frame.

                      What are Tags?

                      Tags

                      Tags are keywords that describe videos. For example, a video of your Hawaiian vacation might be tagged with "Hawaii," "beach," "surfing," and "sunburn."
