What is an unconference?
"An unconference is basically a conference without predefined topics. There is a high level structure and theme, but actual topics are generated by the participants on the spot, and breakout groups are formed dynamically based on interest and relevance."

"While there is enough literature and countless guides (such as this one) available on the science of user scenarios, here’s bringing a little mojo back into scenarios practiced for a while now: I wish to share with my fellow PMs a derived concept – that of “high value scenarios” – which I’ve found to be extremely effective while building complex products.

"As the years go on and technology becomes ever more entrenched in our day-to-day lives, many (including myself) are looking to use it to remove the necessity of our in-person physical form in the working world, at least some of the time."

The iron triangle of planning
Scope, people, and time are the basic building blocks of any plan. In waterfall, scope is fixed and people and time are estimated. In agile you flip the triangle and allow scope to be estimated whilst keeping resources and time fixed.

Content Templates to the Rescue
As an industry, we’ve learned to plan our sites to achieve business goals and meet human needs while shipping on time and delivering compelling user experiences. Alas, despite all the sweat we pour into strategy sessions and GANTT charts, we still have to coax content out of our subject matter experts and get it onto every page of the site. This is where the strongest hearts grow frail, and even seasoned developers reach for Advil or something stronger. But help, in the form of content templates, is on the way. Seize the power.

Pitch the future while building for now
"If you let your big abstract goal take over day to day product development, then I’m convinced that you’ll end up building a really weird product. Consumers don’t care about your long-term strategy, they just want to scratch their itch now. They want to put you in a bucket with something else they recognize, and if they don’t get it, they’ll hit the back button in 5 seconds flat."
