Hey Denver! Get Ready for StartupWeekend June 3-5

May 04, 2011


StartupWeekend Denver is June 3-5, 2011 and Obtiva is hosting an Agile training session with Michael Feathers on June 3 to coincide with the event.

Michael's daylong Agile training course will let you understand how Agile practices let you deliver working products quickly, respond to customer needs, and balance flexibility with stability. Learn more about Obtiva's Agile training and register here. A whole gaggle of Obtivians will be in Denver for the training and StartupWeekend - Dave, Andy, Tyler, Michael, Ryan, Kat and Kevin.

StartupWeekend events are held 'round the world and are a high-energy, whirlwind 54 hour event where entrepreneurs, developers, designers, marketers and everyone in between get together to build out a business concept during the course of a weekend. It starts on Friday at 5 p.m. as participants get together and discuss the kinds of projects they want to create, then pitch their product ideas to the group. Then, teams break out -- typically, about nine teams form during the weekend, each creating their own company and their own product or application. By 9 pm, teams have begun to solidify their concepts and create an elevator pitch, and each group breaks off to conduct its own in-depth discussions and begin to prototype its product or app. 

Saturday morning, work begins in earnest on strategizing, planning and coding, and continues through Sunday evening, when each company presents its concept to a panel of judges and a winner is declared. 

Sooooo: Dave Hoover is one of the judges, while Andy, Ryan and Tyler will be working as technical advisors for the participants.

This is going to be an exhilarating, inspiring, fun, and yes, exhausting weekend that you won't forget. And the Obtiva training with Michael Feathers June 3 is the perfect introduction to Agile skills you can use during StartupWeekend and forever more in your career.

StartupWeekend Denver is organized by Jon Rossi and takes place at WorkBrite in the RiNo district. Registration is open now!
