Agilty Undefined

Andy Hunt

It’s been ten years since we coined the term agile. Are you finally comfortable with being agile? If you are comfortable, then that’s too bad, because it means you’re doing it wrong. Join Andy Hunt, one of the 17 authors of the Agile Manifesto for an important look back at what it means to be agile, and how to progress from simply following agile practices to becoming a true self-directed, self-correcting agile practitioner.

Tightening your Feedback Loop

Jared Richardson

Software development is a series of feedback loops. Our customer tells us what they envision and we deliver. Then they tell how close we did, or occasionally did not, come to that vision of software nirvana. During development, we often work with a team of other software professionals where we're constantly breaking each other's compiles and features.

In all of these cases we're experiencing feedback loops. The longer we wait for the feedback, the less we learn from it. Since writing software is an expensive and risky undertaking, more frequent feedback is better than less frequent. In this session we're going explore several great techniques software teams are using for shortening their feedback loops and delighting their customers.
