Making the most out of remote Event Storming

A while back the virtual Domain-driven design meetup experimented with doing a remote EventStorming. The outcome was that doing remote EventStorming as you would do it offline is sub-optimal. The interaction was lacking during the storming parts, and the number of insights gained was lower. That is the power of EventStorming, and it was not present. Still, we asked ourselves how we can make remote EventStorming more optimal, and with most of the world being stuck at home due to corona, I started experimenting with it. In this post, I will describe heuristics about my first experience with remote EventStorming.

But as is also common, there are reasons to do it, reasons to not do it, and reasons you might not succeed at it. Let me save you some trouble by elaborating on a few of them.

How Internet of Things is taking over human lives

The history of the Internet of things (IoT) can be dated as far back as 1990, when John Romkey, a software engineer and evangelist of the Internet performed an act of magic by using a computer to turn on a toaster; the invention, however, wasn’t fully automated as someone still had to drop the bread into the toaster. Currently, statistics show that only 1% of the things human interact with is connected to the Internet, now

Brain-on-a-chip: How does it work?

Over the last decade, artificial intelligence (AI) and its applications like machine learning and natural language processing have revolutionized many industries and everyday life.

Advances in computer power, data, AI and IoT will orchestrate rapid advacement over the coming years, hence, the buzz around Industry 4.0

Data Strategy for IoT and Industry 4.0

When people talk about industry and manufacturing, their heads often turn to large scale production with huge machines and a massive pool of people doing a multitude of jobs. Although many industrial companies and factory settings have been using forms of digital technology for some time now, only in recent years has this started to become more mainstream. There has been a realization that using artificial intelligence (AI) and internet of things (IoT) devices through the supplier chain, can have amazing effects on efficiency and cost savings.
