How To Grow Support To Become A Cornerstone Of Your Business

Katy Pool, Jr. Developer + John Ouellet, Sr. Developer and Support Manager

As a web agency, how can you offer support to clients so they benefit and you make a profit? We will go over many methods that have worked for us. We’ll also talk about the methods we’ve tried and failed at in the past four years of our Kalacare program. Topics will include, but will not be limited to finding support clients, structuring your support program, tools, selling packages, and more.

Agile Applied to Life

Justin Rhodes, Project Manager

Using real world, daily-life situations to explain Agile principles, Justin demonstrates how an Agile mindset can help you optimize your daily routine. Understanding the theory of Agile methodology is the first step, but taking a dive into applying the theory is difficult. Justin will help you connect the knowledge and practice of Agile, and also share how Agile practices in your personal adventures and relationships can benefit you.

Session time slot:

Saturday - 3:45pm - 4:30pm

Power to the Project Brief

Andrew Ward, Co-Founder

This session aims to help agency managers bridge the gap between the sales process and a project kick-off. The main tool for doing this is a “project brief” which helps keep stakeholders, project owners, project managers and agency staff on the same page by outlining primary objectives, team roles, resources, milestones, etc. Much of the project brief can be informed by the sales process, which is not only helpful to the discovery/implementation team, but to the client to clarify their own needs and goals.

Session time slot:

Saturday - 4:45pm - 5:30pm

Session room:

Toll Room - Alumni House

Styleguide + Prototype: Move Fast and Embrace Drupal

Rob Loach, Sr. Developer + Thiago de Mello Bueno, Designer

A static prototype, along with a styleguide, puts your ideas into the hands of your clients, users, and developers sooner, providing more time for iteration—ultimately resulting in a better product. This session will focus on Kalamuna’s approach to prototyping and in-browser component driven design practices, and the benefits and experience thereof. You will learn how Kalastatic connects the bridge between prototype and implementation through its orchestration across various components.

Session time slot:

Sunday - 2:30pm - 3:15pm

Session room:

Sibley Room - Alumni
