I’m pretty lucky that my boss understands how important the community is and supports us with that in any possible way. Last time I wrote about having some fun together, this time about something more technical.
It will be over a month now since we started “eleven sessions”. Basically that means on our session at 11 o’clock twice a week. Each session is a one hour when one of us shows something. It can be some presentation, something one learn and want to share, some interesting webcast of screencast, just everything about .NET, agile, methodologies and software development. We are discussing various concepts, ideas, technologies and trends. Its brilliant way to share the knowledge, integrate and spent time together. It’s also the great way to train presentation skills and review knowledge.
What I found pretty difficult is to encourage people to do presentation. We are all professionals with great knowledge and experience but it’s difficult to convince one to stand in front of us and talk.
What is in your companies? Do you have something like that? What is your experience in that area?
