Keynote: The Next Decade of Agile Software Development

A session at Lean Agile Scotland 2014

Friday 12th September, 2014

4:20pm to 5:20pm (GMT)

In 2011, I looked back at over a decade of progress in the community of Agile software development practitioners. I talked about some alarming trends in our attitudes, our practices and what we teach, but also described the ways in which I believe we’d really advanced the art of software development. Now, I explore a more interesting question: Where do we go from here? Those alarming trends haven’t all gone away. In fact, some have got worse, and I want to highlight some of things that I think we really need to stop before they destroy all the credibility we’ve built. Of course, the picture is not bleak: we’ve helped make software development better for so many people, and I’ll talk about where I’d like us to focus our considerable energy to help make the coming decade even better for our field and the lives of our colleagues.
