The Xebia KnowledgeCast is a bi-weekly podcast about software architecture, software development, lean/agile, continuous delivery, and big data. Also, we’ll have some fun with stickies!
In this fourth episode, we share some impressions of Scrum Day Europe 2013 and Xebia’s OpenSpace Knowledge Exchange. And of course, Serge Beaumont will have Fun With Stickies! First, we interview Frank Bakker and Evelien Roos at Scrum Day Europe 2013. Then, Adriaan de Jonge and Jeroen Leenarts talk about continuous delivery and iOS development at the OpenSpace XKE. And in between, Serge Beaumont has Fun With Stickies!
Frank Bakker and Evelien Roos give their first impressions of the Keynotes at Scrum Day Europe 2013. Yes, that was last year, I know. New, more current interviews are coming soon. In fact, this is the last episode in which I use interviews that were recorded last year.
In this episode’s Fun With Stickies Serge Beaumont talks about hypothesis stories. Using those, ensures you keep your Agile really agile. A very relevant topic, in my opinion, and it jells nicely with my missing line of the Agile Manifesto: Experimentation over implementation!
Adriaan de Jonge explains how automation in general, and test automation in particular, is useful for continuous delivery. He warns we should focus on the process and customer interaction, not the tool(s). That’s right before I can’t help myself and ask him which tool to use.
Jeroen Leenarts talks about iOS development. Listening to the interview, which was recorded a year ago, it’s amazing to realize that, with the exception of iOS8 having come out in the mean time, all of Jeroen’s comments are as relevant today as they were last year. How’s that for a world class developer!

How I’ve improved my podcast:
- The sounds used for podcast imaging are all created by audionautix.com.
- The original feed for the Xebia KnowledgeCast was created by Serge Beaumont & Robert van Loghem.
- All interviews were recorded in double mono with a Marantz Pro PMD661 recorder using a handheld AKG D230 dynamic mic, a Rode NTG2 condenser mic on a boompole, or a KEL HM-1 condenser mic on a mic arm resulting in a 96.0 kHz, 24-bit WAV file.
- The “Fun With Stickies” section was recorded using the Auphonic recording app.
- Editing was done on a Macbook Pro using LogicPro with a light voice over filter.
- Post production was done using Auphonic resulting in the final MP3 file for upload to Libsyn and distribution through iTunes and Stitcher.
