Cloud Architecture Patterns Exploration Workshop PLoPouirri

Organizers: Kyle Brown, Bobby Woolf, and Joseph Yoder
                   (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.)

Abstract:  Kyle, Bobby, and Joe have been working (with a number of co-authors) for several years on a project to document the patterns of Cloud Architecture (including Cloud Platforms, DevOps, Refactoring for Microservices and Cloud Native Development). This work is now to the stage where we welcome feedback from the patterns, DevOps, cloud, and microservices community as we seek to improve both the patterns on the website (https://cloudadoptionpatterns.com) and in an upcoming O'Reilly book.

We will have interactive exercises to explore the patterns in two ways. First, we will break into groups to examine which patterns are most commonly used by participants including pointing out any missing patterns. Secondly, we will examine common scenarios of use of the patterns when an organization is doing cloud adoption. If we have time and interest, we may also look for feedback on specific patterns, including workshopping patterns that have changed since being workshopped at PLoP conferences.

Agile 20 Reflect

Date: August 2022.
         More details forthcoming.

Details: This will be a one-day mini-workshop.
             This will be a hybrid workshop (both in-person and virtual)  
             No technical expertise or previous patterns expertise is required.

Pattern Mining Workshop Pattern Mining Workshop

Organizers: Kyle Brown, MaryLynn Manns, and Joseph Yoder
                   (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.)

Abstract:  Pattern mining techniques include ways to extract valuable seeds of patterns from proven experiences. In this workshop, you’ll learn about Patterns and learn techniques for identifying patterns and writing patterns and pattern languages.  Learn from experts in the field how to discover patterns, identify how patterns relate to each other in a pattern language or pattern catalog, and participate in interactive exercises that will show you how to write your own patterns and pattern languages.

The workshop consists of a mix of discussion, group pattern writing, pattern mining practice - not necessarily in that order. Part of this will include a discussion on the relationship between patterns, and the priority of the patterns. This can include looking at pattern maps and sequences of using the patterns. The only requirements are an open mind, ready to absorb the patterns experience, and ideas for patterns. If you wish, you can bring any pattern ideas you may want to brainstorm, such as Organizational, Teams, Software, Agile, Change, etc.

Date: April 12-13 2022; 3:00-5:00 pm Chicago timezone.
         More details forthcoming.

Details: This will be a two-day mini-workshop (2 hours per day, online). 
             No technical expertise or previous patterns expertise required.

Registration is closed!!! (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.)

Dialogue workshop for using Pattern Languages for supporting everyday life
PLoPourri

Organizers: Takashi Iba

Dates: September 20th, 2022

Abstract: Pattern language, which was originally invented in the field of architectural design, applied to software design, and then developed into the design of actions and activities, has recently expanded into the area of lifestyle and life design. In this PLoPourri, we will take up some of the pattern languages recently created by Iba Lab and use them in a Dialogue Workshop. IN the Dialogue Workshops, we will talk together about experiences of the participants themselves that are connected to the patterns, and use this as a reference for our own pattern practice by learning about the actual practice and gaining a deeper understanding of the content of the patterns. The following patterns will be covered in this session (participants will choose one of the patterns to participate).

  • A Pattern Language for Nurturing an Exciting Life
  • A Pattern Language for Nature-based Child Care
  • A Pattern Language for Living and Caring Together

Those who wish to attend should register using the form that will be set up about two months before the event. Shortly before the event date, we will send you a summary of each pattern language. The workshop will be held via Zoom.
