  • Distributed agile development [workshop]

    by Neal Ford

    Reading and hearing about agile practices is one thing, but actually doing it is completely different. This workshop puts you to work in an agile fashion, applying agile development practices. During this workshop, we’re going to take a problem and iteratively develop the solution, using test-driven development, pair programming, retrospectives, pair rotation, and other agile development techniques. To make it interesting, we’re going to split the room into two continents and work through the issues faced by real distributed agile teams. We work through several 20-minute iterations during the workshop, giving you a hands-on feel for real agile development. If you have a laptop, bring it, but only half the class needs one, so if you don’t have a laptop, don’t let it discourage you. Come see what it’s like to work on a real distributed agile project, even if it’s only for a few hours.

  • Agile engineering practices

    by Neal Ford

    Most of the time when people talk about agile software development, they talk about project and planning practices but never mention actual development, as if development were an afterthought when writing software. This talk drills into the real details of how to do agile development. I discuss best practices like continuous integration, pair programming, how developers should interact with story cards, how to handle enterprise concerns like integration with other software packages, and a slew of other topics related to agile software development.
