In the brain of David Laribee, the new old school Agile Developer

A session at In the brain of David Laribee, the new old school Agile Developer

There’s an awful tendency in agile circles to place process considerations over fundamental technical practices. I can't bag on Scrum, it’s done a lot of good for the software development world, but I do think it’s time we refocus on programming fundamentals and treat developers as first class members on agile teams.

In this session, I’ll make my case for a return to solid design and development principles. I’ll detail what we’ve done at VersionOne over the last four years to sustain delivery on our long lived codebase, manage technical debt and involve developers in not only coding but product design.

David Laribee has trucked in software for over 15 years. He favors collaboration, design thinking, simple, domain-driven design paired with low ceremony process, tools and platforms. David resides in Atlanta, where he’s a proud member of the VersionOne product development team. He writes about product, workflow and software design at laribee.com.
