Agile Showcase North: Agile Development and Methods 15 February 2018, Manchester
At present times, Agile communities are everywhere and the Agile philosophy is being adopted by more and more organisations. This cooperative, iterative approach to development—or any problem-solving process—that favours multiple, small, rapid releases over fewer large-scale ones is showing stakeholders and unhappy end users how to manage time and money. The key is to embrace change and focus on customer desires and feedback. All this allows agile businesses to provide almost immediate responses to shifting customer demands.
Stalwart thought leaders and practitioners share their views and “know-how” to transition and transform with different processes and attitudes to change. The conference thus provides the perfect occasion for delegates to get involved in the conversation, ask questions, learn about best practices and stay together in the Agile initiative, where Agile has its roots in working, sharing and innovating.
Joint morning session with Testing Showcase and DevOps Showcase
Agile, Testing and DevOps: Are they a Separate conversation or a progression of capability?
DevOps, Testing and Agile have shared environments that facilitate working together. These three methods are more than simply adopting new tools and processes and the synergy involves building a development and a stable Continuous Integration (CI) infrastructure, as well as an automated pipeline that moves deliverables from development to production. They can work together and the entire build process should be transparent, and it should enable and support development and operations. This transformation depends on: significant changes in culture; roles and responsibilities; team structure; tools and processes.
The Round Table session is the last of the joint morning session with the other two co-located events. This session is for 45 minutes of which there will be around ten minutes for a general summing up at the end. The speaker at each table will have a set theme and delegates join any table that they are interested in. They are given all the topics with their joining instructions and again at the time of registration and so make their choice on the topics that they want to attend. This is a discussion group and so no presentation slides are necessary, but please submit a topic if you would like to chair a discussion on a topic related to Testing, Agile and DevOps.
