DFW Scrum Tech Edition

We will be starting out with a quick presentation on Technical Excellence and DevOps LifeCycle.

Later we will break into smaller groups and discuss the biggest challenges with organizations achieving technical excellence, including but not limited to:

- Technical skills
- Technical debt
- Lack of test automation
- Unable to achieve continuous integration
- Releases management is manual

Then regroup and discuss.

    I appreciate everyone who attended. I'll upload the slides shortly.

    The Tech Edition is for you to explore the possibilities in your organization to promote technical excellence. It helps drive agile practices and alleviate a lot of unnecessary stress.

    If you have a success story you would like to share at a future meetup, please let me know.

    I know we briefly went over a few ideas and I'm sure there are a lot of unanswered questions. Please reach out to me so I know what topics you are interested in for the next meetup.

    Thanks again.

    Here's a question I've been pondering.

    If I were to say I wanted to use the best SW development process know to Man (and I would even include Women) - What would be the FIRST thing that process would have me do... remembering that I want to develop state of the art SW that did awesome things, which of course would have tremendous ROI, etc.

    So what is the first engineering practice or development practice or business practice I should get really good at?

      Next is determining where you are relative to that goal. Then create a journey path to achieve that goal.Now here is where I feel different people in the organization have various opinions on how _long_ that journey will take. Perhaps 2 weeks, 2 months, or 2 years. That challenge is being able to identify the different opinions and bring those opinions closer to the truth.

      With that in mind, your most important skill will be figuring out what is needed. This is where it's important to look outside yourself and find people whose experience can inform your perspective. In short, learn to ask good questions -- and listen to the answers. I’d say you’re on your way there, judging by your questions so far; just don’t be afraid to keep iterating!
