Everyone wants automated regression, automated builds, and single click deployments. Who wouldn’t want day to day development blockers eliminated. However, getting these things happening in your office might often face fierce resistance. Here is how one small department banded together for success.
Presented by Jen Knight, Michael Benning, and Dave Mannion.
Jen Knight has been breaking, hacking, and fixing software for over 15 years where she developed a passion for test automation and secure software. She also does coaching/consulting work teaching systems thinking and replacement driven leadership principals.
Michael R. Benning is a Certified Scrum Master and Business Analyst, who’s good questions are akin to a fine Jedi mind trick. He helps agile development teams hone their craft.
Dave has been writing software and managing software development for too many years, beginning in high school with home-grown microprocessor assemblers, disassemblers, and c compilers while putting together printed circuit boards for a small startup called Apple computer. In a career involving laboratory automation, robotics, artificial intelligence, genomics and proteomics he has never ever invoked a waterfall process. He enjoys information theory and playing banjo.
