Agile Portugal Conference, with DevScope’s support

It’s almost starting AGILE Conference here in Porto and we will have here Dave Thomas, Joseph Yoder, Jutta Eckstein, Lachlan Heasman, Nicolai Josuttis, Peter Sommerlad and many other.

 “Agile methods strive to deliver business value early in the project lifetime and to adapt to changing requirements. They leverage the use of “high-bandwidth” and informal communication, supporting the human side of software development while delivering running, tested systems.

Agile Portugal 2010 will be an international conference about Agile software development and its practices, technologies, attitudes and experiences. Created by practitioners, for practitioners, it is suited for both experts and beginners in Agile methods. Rather than focusing on a single methodology, it will be a forum for all Agile development approaches.” http://www.agilept.org/

We hope to meet many other SCRUM practitioners during these days and wish all speakers and attendees an extraordinary stay here in Porto.

Meanwhile we want to congratulate our colleague Bernardo Antunes for getting this week his Certified ScrumMaster with Mitch Lacey

Re/Max grew up 60%

In the first four months of this year RE/MAX Portugal has grown 60% in turnover, with eight million euros more than the equivalent period of 2009. The RE/MAX network completed 10 443 transactions, 2 791 more than in 2009. Economic recession in Portugal is changing the behavior for property owners as they are pursuing more professional mediation to sell their houses.  
Since we published our Case Study, iWorkRemax platform has grown immensely in the areas of Customer Intelligence. Our customer’s success is our goal too, so we couldn’t be happier for their deserved results.
