Having worked in the software industry since 1997, and Agile practitioner since 2004. He has worked in small, medium and large software organizations as an Agile Coach or leader in agile adoption at those organizations One of the leaders of Agile methods and Agile culture adoption at Avira and F-Secure.

Often we hear that estimating a project is a must. "We can't make decisions without them" we hear often. In this session I'll present examples of how we can predict a release date of a project without any estimates, only relying on easily available data.
I'll show how we can follow progress on a project at all times without having to rely on guesswork, and we will review how large, very large and small projects have already benefited from this in the past. At the end of the session you will be ready to start your own #NoEstimates journey.
2. Using Docker in development and production, is it as useful as the hype claims?
By Konstantin Root. Engineering director and architect with substantial experience in building highly complex systems and delivering them on time and with high quality. Konstantin is currently in a unique position in Estonia - he is working on it for last 1.5 years and also managing official Docker Meetup in Estonia. Head of Development Estonia at Insparx.
After quick introduction to the Docker I will show examples how and why you can greatly benefit using Docker in development and production. We will also look at the cases when it does not make sense to use Docker. At the end we will install/configure Docker and build container for real production service in 20 minutes from scratch.
