Sprechen Sie Deutsch?
While presentations in English were welcome, having German speaking staff at catWorkX Wien seemed essential. On one hand all the morning presentations were delivered in German. On the other hand we were told some guest, people from ESET in particular, would join the conference at 1 p.m. when lectures in English began.
All in all, as a Jira apps developer, we believe we’d have got far more traffic had we learnt Deutsch at school.
Unluckily, those who speak German at SoftwarePlant stayed home. So they supported the team dispatched to catWorkX remotely through Slack, pictured.
Things to consider before future catWorkX editions
- Co-founders and VIPs from catWorkX Hamburg headquarters and the Austrian subsidiary were present and available for talks
- Compared to the Vienna edition, the Hamburg catWorkX is on a larger scale
- Austrian project managers seem to be less aware of Scaled Agile Framework methodology, compared to their German counterparts
