The Rubber, the Road, and Me: Agile Frameworks Meet Large Scale Deployments

Join us on February 8th to kick off the Milwaukee Agile Meetup in 2023!

ABOUT THE SPEAKER:
Sean Geeleher is a local Technology Legend has over 20 years of IT experience. This experience has run the gamut from printer installs to Top Secret network installations to software development. For the past 7 years he's been helping lead an agile transformation at a Fortune 100 logistics firm. He has an SPC that allows him to teach, while his day job of app dev management keeps him grounded in reality.

TOPIC ABSTRACT:
Over the past few years Sean has experienced large scale customer facing implementations. Maybe at “born on the web” companies it’s not applicable, but for those of stuck in the middle of tech stacks it will be helpful. These rollout had significant back end system design and OCM. Throughout this presentation, Sean will talk about what he's learned through the eyes of a SAFe implementation, but will also keep it generic enough for other frameworks. We’ll look at scheduling pitfalls, portfolio mindsets, and how to convey confidence during development. Straight from the man himself, "My suffering is your chance to learn and make new mistakes 😊."

LOGISTICS:
5:30PM - Pizza & Networking. We order based on how many RSVP. If you are unable to or suddenly able to attend, please adjust your RSVP. Thank you!
6-7PM - Presentation & Q/A

INTERESTED IN SPEAKING?
We're currently working on aligning speakers for the 2023 year. If you're passionate for Agile and are interested in speaking, please feel free to reach out to me to discuss topic and availability. I can be reached at [masked].
Thank you!

Join us on March 14th for a MKE Agile Meetup!

ABOUT THE SPEAKER:
Vanitha Suresh has over 22+ years of work experience in a wide variety of industries such as Electrical Engineering, Fintech, Arts, Health Care, Medical Insurance, Retail, and Manufacturing. She has consistently provided progressive solutions and thought leadership in various software development/ leadership roles. She has a Master’s in CS from Drexel University & UW, Madison. She received a patent and was first author on a publication for a “System & Method for Designing Proteins” at UW, Madison. Vanitha has been using Agile Scrum on the job and beyond since 2007, and is a passionate advocate for the methodology. In her spare time, Vanitha volunteers on the board of two non-profits SciArt Services, and Melharmony Foundation. She is also a Carnatic (South Indian Classical) Vocalist & Arts Educator.

TOPIC ABSTRACT:
Vanitha's presentation/discussion called, "Everyday Agile" will be based on applying an Agile mindset to everyday life. Anything that is overwhelming to the modern day individual can be broken down into chunks that can be delivered over an amount of time. Vanitha will explain how she applies the role of a Product Owner when she teaches Indian Classical Music - her students are the team members and parents are the Scrum Masters. Applying agile methodology has helped her students keep up classical music through high school/college amidst academic demands. She will demonstrate that once you're in the Agile mindset, it's easy to apply to every day personal hobbies, raising children, cooking, etc.
