Experience Reports - Teams Challenge

Experience Reports - Teams Challenge

Description:

Our final session of the week was designed specifically for teams! Mark Winteringham revealed a surprise challenge on the final day, giving 2 teams just a few hours to solve it! 

It was fascinating to see how the different teams work together to solve this challenge. You will undoubtedly recognise group dynamics at play. Not only this was an interesting technical challenge, but a great way to observe communication between the teams. How they worked together to resolve those error codes, how they picked the right tool for them and how they all dealt with any confusion encountered along the way.

With so many different people sharing their knowledge we can guarantee there is a different range of approaches, problems, solutions and generally a wealth of information shared. Plus which team will successfully complete the challenge? Check to find out!
