Agile 2016 | July 25 – 29 Atlanta, GA
The Agile 2016 Conference in Atlanta is right around the corner! The forecast for July 25 is … 95 degrees with high humidity and maybe some rain. It’s a good thing I’ll be inside, where it’s air conditioned, and enjoying the amazing lineup at this year’s conference. I’ve been using my blog to post my recommendations. I’ve shared my stories and thoughts on each day, if you missed them check out: Monday, July 25 ; Tuesday, July 26 and Wednesday, July 29.
Now, on to Thursday, July 28:
Looks like a deep-dive on a complex data-focused topic!
Changing the way we handle funds is a common challenge to Agile transformations – and I’m glad it’s getting some attention at this conference.
I heard good things about this session from my friend, Lisa Crispin – so I intend to check it out at this conference!
I’ve had great conversations with David over several years and can highly recommend this session. His new book, Beyond Legacy Code: Nine Practices to Extend the Life (and Value) of Your Software, is also really good!
Paying down technical debt is a very important aspect of improving agility, and doesn’t get enough attention, IMHO.
I’ve had a great time playing the getKanban board game and would like to start using the online version in my client work. I like this session’s focus on how to make it really useful for team learning.
I caught the tail-end of this session at the Scrum Gathering earlier this year and it looked really interesting. The whole room seemed very engaged in the exercise.
Ellen Grove was a wonderful host for the 2016 Scrum Gathering Open Space. Lego Serious Play is a hot topic these days!
“Agile development practices require innovative ways of looking at the contributions architects make, as well as the ways in which they make them.”
I have taken several courses from Michael Spayd and I have participated in early roundtables based on his developing book. I respect his deep knowledge in this area as well as his ability to communicate with a variety of audiences. Besides, he’s one of the most serene people I’ve ever met – it’s quite an experience to learn from Michael.
I’m so glad to see several sessions on emergent/agile architecture at this conference!
Don is a colleague of mine at The Cutter Consortium and we meet bi-weekly to discuss Agile topics.
“Chances are you have always intuitively known that interrupts are what makes your process unpredictable. This talk will give you to tools you need to quantify that impact and give you strategies on how minimize their negative effects.”
