The introduction to Scrum in TapLife, shared in 2 hours with the product teams.

After a short introduction, they talked about the current context to get my shares.

Taplife is a startup, building some great mobile apps that are focused on the augmented reality. They are facing some common startup issues: looking for the effective working methods in the software development as they “seem” be following waterfall right now by the content team goes first with full specifications, design team make them visual on UI and developers end up by code implementation. It of course takes more time to make an idea go live.

In 2013, HanoiScrum had a program Agile4U that brought Agile to universities in purpose of enlarging our Agile community. We thought that the IT students who will work in the modern projects should know Agile as soon as possible and be aware of the trending of software development method because their courses were full of traditional approach and no longer updated.

As the main in charged person of this program, I had some talks in several universities such as University of Engineer and Technology (National University, Hanoi), University of Science and Technology of Ha Noi… etc. I used to use this presentation that was built by Tan Trong Duong and me with some customizations for the specific talks with the case study or game.

After a year, we decided to stop this program. I was so busy that time with the new job (the talk was short, but it took a lot of time to contact and organize an event in an university with a lot of ugly stuffs, especially in procedures). But the main reason is its values. It seemed to bring less value to the students because most of them didn’t have any experience in the real project within a process. It’s so hard to show how better Agile is than traditional approach. They might be impressed by my performance and the strange content but traditional methods seem much more easy to understand and believe on.

But I’m considering to restart this program because the universities seem different right now with a lot of students having the longer internship in the real on-job-training work. Then they can see the issues of traditional approach in the real project and maybe finding an alternative way. Do you think so? Or are you interested in an Agile course instead of an introduction talk? If you are a student, please throw me your opinion, I’m very happy to spend my time to make this course go live.
