Software project design

A session at SDD 2016

  • Juval Löwy

Monday 16th May, 2016

9:30am to 5:30pm (GMT)

Much as the need to design the system, you must also design the project: from scheduling resources behind the services, to tracking your progress across developers, services and phases of completion, to validating your plan, and accommodating changes. This requires understanding the inner dependencies between services and activities, the critical path of integration, the available floats, the staff distribution and the risks involved. All of these challenges stem from your design and addressing them properly is a hard core engineering task – designing the project. In this full day tutorial Juval Lowy shares his approach for software project design, along with his unique insight for delivering software on schedule and budget.

You will also see to deal with common misconceptions and typical roles and responsibilities in the team. Time permitting, Juval will demonstrate how project design fits into development processes such as Agile, common pitfalls of design in an Agile environment, and how to design the development process for maximum productivity.
