Agile Collaboration

Breakfast & Speak

Breakfast & Speak was to meet and talk about things Agile and we did. Stefan (Stefan Dirnstorfer | LinkedIn) and I met at Bar Centrale from 7:30 to 9am. I love the Pistachhio cream croissants. Check them out (Bar Centrale – Münchners beliebteste italienische Bar (

Two things we discussed

The Kural Series is about my commentary on Thirukural couplets related to speech and audience especially with a Public speaking (my passion) angle. It was interesting to hear how Stefan explained the love and deceit concept with his input. Does love exist without deceit? Does one submit oneself to self-deceit to then deceive loved ones? (heavy hitting philosophical discussions fueled by oat milk cappuchinos).

The Testing discussion was interesting as we discussed various aspects of testing

  • why testing coverage alone cannot be the answer to quality needs
  • why we need to identify the value adding features to be tested to find that ROI on testing
  • what is the pain point that forces companies to seriously consider testing

Technologies you can grow with

It was great meeting the Sysvine team on short notice.

I got to see the new “Sysvine Park” ( building in Chennai. I loved the design and architecture of the building with 1s and 0s as lights on the ceiling and the honeycombs for the team members.

We had a nice demo of the Healthcare product “Sysvine HealthPractice” ( It is interesting how a decade old product which is already being used in hospitals in India is being revamped using the latest technologies and made available using a simple subscription model and features.

It was great to discuss collaboration opportunities with Senthil Kumaran (Senthil Kumaran | LinkedIn) Senior Director of FinTech around products and services and meet in person after 5 years of online meetings.

It was amazing to meet the DevOps team with Vinoth and Lokesh and see how they were together adding value for a Data Science team in Germany.

And so thankful to meet Hasini and Krishna (travelled all the way from Krishnagiri) and have lunch with them.

It was short but wonderful catch-up with the Sysvine team. I am looking forward to more Product collaboration and Services outsourcing in 2023 and beyond!
