Hello Agile Connect Braga Community, here comes our 32nd meetup! Our 3rd remote edition will be once again held in partnership with Porto Community =D
In a very #Play14 mood and with a #StayAtHome constraint, we have come to agreed with the following manifesto:
We are uncovering better ways of playing, helping people to enjoy together. Through this meetup we would like to demonstrate that:
1) Using sticky notes is nice, but the virtual ones are not bad;
2) Interacting and drawing on a flipchart is fun, but MURAL is a good alternative;
3) You can lock people at home but creativity flies anyway;
4) Lego® brick’s noise sounds good, but looking at smiling faces helps more our minds and souls in this period.
18h:30m – Welcome
18h:40m – Serious Games, with Antonio & Francesco
20h00m – Closing
For the ones who don’t know yet, #Play14 (https://play14.org/) is an international community suround serious gaming. Serious gaming is an amazing tool for team building, retrospetive, learing, modelling, problem solving and much more.
This meetup will be a sort of “remote serious game sightseenig”: are you ready for fun?
Meet our facilitators:
Antonio Fazio (https://www.linkedin.com/in/antoniofazio07081979/):
My name is Antonio and I have always loved playing! I started at the age of 4, when fascinated by the European teams of the time, I invented football games where the teams were my own hands. The field was built with the imagination and the small paper ball simulated the one I used to play with at the street. I remember the happiness seeing my little finger scoring a goal. The joy I felt, continues right now. And my goal is to transmit it to the teams and organizations I work with.
The game that accompanies my coaching, allows me to create a safe environment in which people can express themselves and freely interact with each other. It allows me to build a sense of belonging to the team, working on the identity and values of individuals and the whole team. It is possible to stimulate, through the game, what for me is an incessant research: continuous improvement.
Francesco Racanati (https://www.linkedin.com/in/francescoracanati/):
Since 2013 I have been working for companies operating in the digital field in Italy and Brazil. I started as”business controller” passed through the “business operations” and then reached “product ownership”.
In 2018, I started my journey as Scrum Master and then Agile Coach & Trainer and I love it! For this reason, during my spare time, I take part and facilitate MeetUps with the Agile community here in Milan, read as much books as I can and write articles for Agile Italia Magazine. I’m a serious games addicted.
The meetup will take place on Thursday, May 14th, 6:30pm – 8 p.m., online.
