The agile methodology is a cornerstone value of the Pendata business. In October this year, we completed a corporate restructuring, to give the development and R&D tasks an identity separate from the digital pen and product sales function, within the Pendata business. The results was Pendata Labs – a stand alone core R&D team built on the agile vision of teamwork as the essential ingredient in delivering great software within a great team.
To mark this event as a significant and historic milestone within the evolution of the Pendata Dev Team, CTO Gustaf packed up the MacBooks and surfboard, and relocated to Indonesia for a month of working away from home, Balinese style! With tools like JIRA, Slack and AWS, development continuity and process was the easy bit – the way the team responded to working away from home for a month, and the effect that had on the agile workflow, is the subject of this post from the Chief Travelling Officer.
