Turning on a sixpence - technical skills for Agile development
Host: Steve Freeman
Many organisations have adopted Agile development practices over the past ten years and are now discovering that there's more to it than iterations and stand-ups. One of the best features of the Agile movement was that it reset the balance between the business and technical sides of a software organisation. True Agility--the ability to respond rapidly to change--requires both good business decision- making and strong technical skills and practice.
This track is about the technical essentials you need to know to make Agile software development reliable and sustainable. It will include "refresher" topics, for those who are just starting or have been getting a bit rusty, and some of the new ideas and practices that have come out of a decade of experience in the discipline.
