Most of us in the software business are working from home full-time these days and that comes with a unique set of challenges. Things like; increased difficulty keeping the entire team aligned, real-time co-creation, and collaboration on everything from strategy & design through development.
This month we will be exploring one tool that goes a long way to supporting these types of virtual collaboration efforts. And we will be working through a few collaborative exercises. The tool is called Miro. We will start with a quick introduction on how to use this tool and then we will dive right into a few fun exercises.
Exercises will cover:
- Team Alignment – Setting Goals
- Ideation – Co-creation session
- Collaboration – Building wireframes
You do NOT need a Miro account to attend and this event will not cost you a dime!
The two facilitators for this event have been using Miro for many years (Since before it was called Miro) and they are die-hard enthusiasts. Please join us for a night of collaboration and discussion!
