Monthly Meeting: Scaling Agility

Over the past dozen years, Agile software methodologies have moved from the fringes to the mainstream. During that time, a wealth of information has been created in the form of books, videos, conferences, and workshops. Most of that information addresses applying agile techniques to a single team with few constraints. Many situations require coordination across multiple teams, distributed teams, and teams that are organized around large-scale systems architectures. This talk will cover techniques for large-scale agile product design, roadmap planning, delivery planning and execution.

About the Speaker:

Dion Stewart is a software developer and agile coach at DevJam in Minneapolis, MN. As a Smalltalk developer, he was first exposed to test-driven development, pair programming, user stories, and other agile practices in the late 1990s. He has a Masters degree in Software Engineering and an undergraduate degree in Music and English Literature. His work as a professional software developer is also influenced by the time he spent on residential guitar seminars with rock guitarist Robert Fripp.

    I enjoyed the Fishbowl after the presentation. I thought it closed some loose ends.

    Sorry I will not be at the meeting. This is one of those topics I would like to hear more about. Now if someone could just invent a teleportation device, I could make the meeting without another round-trip ticket...
