"Eat, Sleep, Play" and "Agile or Fragile"?

Agile or Fragile? Balancing Flexibility & Structure
Sandi Jones - @followsandi

No matter which dev methodology you use, there's always tension between the need to be quick & flexible and the need to plan ahead and deliver quality. I'll talk about balancing these forces, using real world examples.

Sandi Jones is a product developer and business consultant who has brought tech products to market for large companies like Rogers as well as small startups. Since 2012, she has run a boutique services firm called Unconventional Wisdom that works with both startups and large enterprises turning new technology into successful products. Most recently, in 2013, she led the transformation of a marketing agency's internal analytics tool into SqueezeCMM Inc., now a successful graduate of Extreme Startups.

Eat, Sleep, Play
Puleen Patel - @puleen

This era of passionate development, connectedness and innovation calls for the need to play an even greater game of bringing balance to the universe that is a developer. The talk will focus on the importance of balance to achieve greatness. 

Puleen has played various roles over the last 15 years, ranging from Technical Support Agent to more recently a Product Architect. In his short career, he has always strived to help customers and individuals get over their current and future hurdles by leveraging the best technology capability. A technologist and a developer at heart, always curious to understand how and why things work the way they work.
