Seminar Fixed price + Agile + DDD

During the evening of March the 17th, Sogyo will organize another technical seminar. In this one, Sogyo employees Rick van der Arend (that’s me!) and André Boonzaaijer will explain how we can handle the wishes of many of our customers to get an agile software project, in a domain driven way, but with a planned and fixed budget.

Experiences they have had in several recent projects will play a central role. Workshop techniques and several other activities you should undertake during the domain exploration phase will be presented. Next to that, Rick and André will answer the question: how do you fill and estimate the SCRUM product backlog up front? In short, this will be an interesting evening.

The seminar starts at 18:00 with a bite to eat and at about 19:00, Rick and André will start their intro. The program will last until about 22:00. Sogyo employees can subcribe to the seminar by sending an e-mail to If you are not a Sogyo employee, but you are interested in this seminar, please e-mail Anneke van Beek at

But that is just a sidestep. read more…
