Dave Rooney and #NoProcesses

Rebel.com

Dave Rooney presents #NoProcesses : You may have heard about the #NoEstimates movement, and even #NoProjects. Both of those are keen to examine the assumptions behind two key aspects of delivering software. But what about the process itself? Do we even need approaches like Scrum, Kanban, SAFe, or Extreme Programming in order to be successful? Is following a pre-defined process helpful at all? Is there a simpler way to be effective? This session starts with two key principles common to all successful software delivery approaches and builds out from there based on the experience of the participants. Like #NoEstimates and #NoProjects, the name doesn’t really mean to eliminate process altogether, but rather to build a process that works for your team in your business domain with your technology stack. About Dave Are you trying to improve how your teams work? Do you need help automating your software testing efforts? Are you looking for technical practices that will boost your product quality? Are your product managers having a tough time prioritizing features? I can help! I've worked with clients in many business domains in both the private and public sectors. I've worked with junior programmers and CEO's and everyone in between. I can help you and your team make your software delivery efforts more effective. I'm a veteran Software Team Leader, Agile Coach & Software Developer who has been at this software thing since the 80's when I discovered that I loved solving real-world problems with code. I have a deep interest in the human factors involved in the effective delivery of software that delights its customers, as well as promoting practices that make the work environment not just more humane, but fun as well. And, 30+ years after I solved my first real-world problem on an Apple ][, I still enjoy writing code when I can! Specialties: Software process improvement, Agile Coaching, Extreme Programming (XP), Scrum, Lean, Kanban, Large-scale Agile, TDD, ATDD, automated testing, Selenium, Ruby, Rails, Shopify store development, Java, Javascript, CoffeeScript, HTML, CSS
