AllPhi welcomes us to their Lightning Talks evening in Kinepolis Antwerp! These sessions are in Dutch!


Experiencing Team Flow

You will experience the effects of team flow in this non-technical workshop.

We will be running a few interactive simulations on team organisation and the effect this has on the total flow of work.

Topics we will certainly address:

- Why would we prefer T-shaped team members?

- How can swarming help?

- Why would you deliberately limit work in progress?

- Why is it that we have trouble estimating when work will be done?

Feature Flags - wat is het en hoe, waar, en wanneer gebruik je het?

En waarom zou je het zelf programmeren, als er degelijke systemen zoals bestaan?

AI & the obsolete developer

Is the AI revolution making developers obsolete? Or will it enhance a developers live?

Ben Luts

I started my career as a consultant in telecom, monitoring Belgian Railways GSM-R network & the Tetra network of the Belgian Federal Police.

After just over a year I realized I missed coding & I became a .NET Developer for a small web agency. Going from ASP.NET Webforms to MVC, from jumping hoops moving from dotNet Framework 2.0 to 3.5 to 4.x to Core. 11 Years later I felt it was time for another change and I jumped back into consultancy, but as a dotNet developer this time round.

Now in my 5th year working for AllPhi, I became consultant coach. Relaying my experiences to our consultants.
