Learn About Kanban

While learning about tools is great, since tools impact what we work with, it's equally important to focus on how we work. By looking at our work practices we can improve our efficiency and deliver more value in what we do. To that end, we're pleased to welcome Cory Foy, who is going to give us an overview and introduction to Kanban.

Cory describes his talk in this way:

Kanban for DevOps

Over the past 10 years, we've seen a significant shift towards the ability to rapidly - and continuously - deliver and deploy business value to our customers. We've seen many product teams adopt methodologies like Scrum which divide the work into chunks of deliverable business value. But in the DevOps world, work isn't always neatly sliceable into two week chunks - and sometimes harms us when we do. In this talk, Cory Foy will discuss a brief history of Kanban, comparing it to Scrum, and help show what makes it so applicable for the work to enable healthy deployments, continuous integration and happy customers (and developers too!)

Cory Foy has worn many different hats over the years. Currently he's CTO at Pretty Cool Apps, as well as being an agile coach, while also being active in the Ruby community. You may have seen him present previously at the Triangle Ruby Brigade meetup.

We're back in Raleigh at WebAssign for this meetup. As usual, the plan is to provide pizza and drinks with the doors opening at 6:45pm.

Hope to see everyone there.

    I am really interested in Kanban as we are implementing it at work. The speaker really knew his stuff, was a good time.

      Doug, so sorry that happened. I'm going to update our signage to ensure we have SMS/text capability noted as well.

    Wow. When it seems like you couldn't possibly top the last speaker, you go and do it. Excellent speaker with an infectious enthusiasm for process. Thank you!
