Azure Lean Coffee

planned future dates

to be defined



Azure Lean Coffee is a monthly online event where you can discuss topics related to Microsoft Azure, cloud computing, and DevOps with other professionals and enthusiasts.

Hosted by Azure MVP Daniel McLoughlin and Solutions Architect Rukaya Ogazi-Khan, this event follows the Lean Coffee format, which is a structured but agenda-less meeting where participants propose and vote on topics, and then have timeboxed conversations about them.

Lean Coffee is a meeting facilitation technique that allows participants to create and vote on an agenda based on their interests and needs. It is a structured, but agenda-less way of having productive and engaging conversations.

To run an online Lean Coffee session, we set up a Kanban board that has three columns: To Do, Doing, and Done.

In advance of the meeting, and again at the start, we invite our guests to add their discussion points to the To Do column of the board. At the start of the session, when everyone is ready, we hold a voting round, where people can vote on all the topics within the To Do column, which are then rank by popularity.

Topics are then discussed in order of popularity. The Doing column contains the topic that is currently being discussed, with a timer to roughly limit the duration. The Done column contains the topics that have been discussed, along with any action items or key takeaways.

Whether you want to share your experience, ask questions, or learn something new, Azure Lean Coffee is a great opportunity to connect and collaborate with the Azure community.

The events will be live-streamed and recorded, so you can also watch them later at your convenience. Join us for the next Azure Lean Coffee and discover the power of Azure!
