Real Startups

Track abstract
More and more innovation in new products and services entering a marketplace is being driven by the approach of being a 'startup'. But what makes a startup tick? How do the processes and practices that we know and love learn to adapt and scale as a startup succeeds, pivots or straight fails? Are there lessons that even large enterprises can learn about how processes and practices evolve in startup environments to meet these natural but difficult challenges that have very real consequences to the success of a venture? Regardless of whether you're thinking about starting a new venture, are in a large company that is considering a new product, or are simply looking to learn more about how processes and practices can inspect and adapt within extremely high-pressure environments, this track will offer something of value for you to take away and apply to your own workplace's system of software delivery.
