"ThoughtWorks will give two free seminars at Berns Tuesday April 21 2009.
The morning one is given by me and will be on the business value of agile and lean, and how it can be the competitive advantage in difficult times.
In the afternoon my colleague Zack Exley will give a behind-the-scenes look at the technological side of the Barack Obama campaign.
Both of the talks will be kicked off by our chairman Roy Singham who will give his view on why he believes Scandinavia has a great future in the software development world."
"ThoughtWorks cohosting and speaking at the Emerging Technologies track at the Scandinavian Developer Conference. Ola will speak about JRuby and I will give a presentation with a title stolen from XP: ‘The Simplest Thing That Could Possibly Work’.
It is a one day conference which I am really looking forward to - Kent Beck keynoting is reason enough to be there. See the full program here."
"ThoughtWorks Sweden will move in with our great friends at Agical at the end of this month. Our new address will be
ThoughtWorks Sweden Västerlånggatan 79 2tr 111 29 Stockholm Sweden
Personally it will be the first time I have an office in Old Town - cool."
"I will be at JAOO this year, telling everyone who is interested all about ThoughtWorks Sweden. Last time I went to JAOO was 2001, so I am really looking forward to it.
I will probably spend quite some time in the ThoughtWorks booth, so come by and say hi. Or beat me in the IT-run which I have signed up for."
"ThoughtWorks Sweden has come a long way since I last posted anything about it. We have ourselves a nice office downtown, with proper phone numbers and pretty business cards.
This means that we are available for consulting gigs, primarily in Stockholm, but we can serve basically all of Scandinavia. With ThoughtWorks global organization behind us, we offer software delivery in Java, Ruby and .Net as well as agile coaching and consulting."
"I am thrilled and honored to say that I will be joining ThoughtWorks starting June. Stockholm is the next pin on the ThoughtWorks world map and my job will be heading the operations locally.
The Stockholm office will initially be manned by me and homeward bound Ola, but we plan to find and attract some of the great talent available here.
It is really exciting to become a part of the excellent organization that is ThoughtWorks."
"I just talked to Sid Pinney and Ola Bini of ThoughtWorks, and it seems that ThoughtWorks might open an office in Sweden. That would be a welcome injection to the swedish consulting market where too many players favor quantity over quality."
"Wow. I am back in Mac land, which I left in 1996 when I started my career at IBM and turned into a PC drone. Now, after four days of pure Mac joy, it feels like I am never going back.
This also goes to show what a cool company Valtech is. I mentioned this to Jon who got really jealous. Apparently the Thoughtworkers get company issued Dells and all Mac stuff is paid for by themselves."
