Breaking news, tight deadlines, and ever-changing priorities are hallmarks of most newsrooms. In fact, they're the hallmarks of many software development projects too, if you switch news for 'ideas'. The ever changing roadmap makes delivering quality software applications difficult. Gotten on top of all that? Then add in the time to maintain and scale these apps, embracing change as code slowly changes into 'legacy'; all of which would lead anyone to go just a little bit crazy. So won't you all join me in opening your twitter streams and shouting out.... ?
One of the most difficult parts of software development is starting projects off right (so that they actually ship). This talk will take developers through the process of war room storyboarding and getting a project off the ground, galvanizing teams to produce quickly and consistently without compromising quality. Stripping down features to find the core product, and managing expectations with product owners will be covered in detail. After this talk, developers will have the tools to implement this in their own processes, and add some fun into the mix along the way.
