Also, for various scheduling reasons, the tour stop was split into to two parts of two days each, about a month apart. This meant that when returning for the second round, I got to see that some of the design discussions and work that we did during my first visit had gone into or was about to go into production. I returned just as the team was preparing a new beta version of the 2.0 release of the platform. Thus we didn't do a whole lot of programming, but certainly a bit of testing.
More interestingly I participated in a work meeting covering backlog grooming and strategy. Partly bringing a bit of an outside perspective, but mostly getting a better grasp of the challenges and opportunities Evothings have in front of them.
While this tour stop didn't exactly go according to the original plans, I got a good look at a segment of the technology world I previously have had very little to do with. All in all, a worthwhile investment of time.
Thanks for having me Evothings and good hunting!
