Jon will reveal that Agile isn’t the foolproof silver bullet that we said it would be! Oh, wait. We never said that.
What do the agile principles really mean? I will share my opinion and a short historical look-back at the Agile Manifesto gathering, it’s origins and context of the industry’s processes “back in the day.” I cut my teeth doing software in the government and for the government (DoD). And out of that frustration was born my penchant for (what are now dubbed) agile methods.
* Learn why you don’t “do” agile, but rather why you should strive to “be” agile.
* Why I think agile is hard and can’t be mastered in just a few days.
* Does agile only work in the small, or can it be “scaled?”
* Jon will touch on his 3 simple keys to successful software development!
As always, you can ask Jon anything on agile, climbing, BDD/TDD, beer, CI/CD, development secrets — we will have a lively Q&A session if you bring your awesome questions!
