On Thursday, May 5, 2016. in the amphitheater of the Third High School in Sarajevo, an educative meetup for students was held on the topic “Introduction into software development”. The content of the meetup was deliberately chosen so that students of the Third High School could learn more about our organization, agile methodologies and the wide area of opportunities that young people have in the field of software development.
Our colleges from Bosnia Agile could notice that students were focused and following the unique presentation from our college Jasmin Heljić. We were especially proud to see a great number of students attending this event. At the end of the presentation you could get the feeling that there is much more space for cooperation between Bosnia Agile and this school system, so that future generations could also learn and educate themselves about this topic.
We want to thank the Third gymnasium for being a wonderful host and we look forward for more cooperation in the near future.

On April 8th, 2016 very interesting meetup about public sector agility was held at the Council of Ministers of Bosnia and Herzegovina building. Meetup was held in a form of workshop with attendees from many different public institutions and companies.
In a very pleasant and useful discussion the need for more similar workshops is recognized due to the fact that public sector in Bosnia and Herzegovina is dominant, and changes are necessary for better and more efficient public services.
Bosnia Agile will continue to organize events in order to improve software development practices, IT project management and to promote agile philosophy.
