Conference and User Group Talks
Two colleagues gave the lecture "Beam me up - Holographic telepresence using the Hololens" at the CodeMotion Amsterdam 2018. TNG was also present at the DWX Developer Week in Nuremberg with this lecture and the talk "A Practical Guide to Distributed Stream Processing".
Colleagues also gave talks at various User Groups, for instance "Architecture Documentation" at the Software Architecture Munich Meetup and "Advanced Package Management" at the Munich and Augsburg PHP User Groups.
LEGO Millenium Falcon World Record
Inspired by the Heise Livestream, a team of 27 TNG colleages set a new record of 2h 09min 54sec for the construction of the largest Lego set ever produced.
The attained frequency of just under one brick per second was achieved with careful planning. The "Product Owner" created a dependency graph over all 17 packets of the set and, based on that, created stories to be worked on independently by the building teams during the Legothon. Retrospectives and a review process reduced the error rate still further.
The current best time of 6:18:15 was reduced by almost two thirds, although with an unlimited team size.
Two of our colleagues gave a talk on the topic "Distributed Stream Processing - a Guide for Use in Practice" at the parallel 2018 in Heidelberg. TNG also attended the Javaland in Brühl near Köln, the GOTO Meeting in Amsterdam and the TeqNation in Utrecht with the lecture "Beam me up - Holographic telepresence using the Hololens".
