The Other Side of the Owl

We’ve been to the local Owl Mountains a few times in the past, but we’ve mostly hit the same trails since we simply didn’t know any better. So when the weather forecast called for a super sunny and warm day this past Saturday, we knew that we had to spend that day outdoors, but we…

Scrum is in the Air

On Monday I spent a few hours talkin’ Scrum with Agile On The Boat folk. AOTB is a pretty cool initiative that gathers around scrum masters, product owners, project managers, software developers, and anyone within Wroclaw’s software development scene to discuss the Agile Method.

TMW#6 Mountain Hiking, Happiness, & NSX.

I say dog-assisted because Fado pulled us right up the 650+ steps it took to climb the scenic overview of the valley below. Partially because Fado just loves…

Wild Stones

The German name for this mountain spot in the south of Poland is Wilde Löcher, which Google translates into Wilde Holes or Openings. Polish translation would sound more like Erroneous Rocks. The overall idea is that there are a lot of big rocks, stones, and boulders here with very tight walkways made in-between, making getting…
