On Wednesday, October 5, AccuRev will host a breakfast seminar at the Gore Hotel in London. At this seminar, guest speaker Ian Spence, Ivar Jacobson’s Chief Technology Officer, will discuss creating a firm foundation for a transition to Agile. AccuRev co-founder and Chief Technology Officer, Damon Poole, will discuss how companies can optimize their software development process, reviewing topics such as:
• Overcoming process challenges, such as introducing agile methods and supporting distributed teams;
• Automating and visualizing the software development process, while eliminating broken builds and merge “hell”;
• Enabling top performance for geographically distributed and parallel teams.
Poole will also speak at this year’s Agile Business Conference at the Inmarsat Conference Centre in London, on Thursday, October 6. His session, ‘Scrum and Kanban, Like Chocolate and Peanut Butter, ’ will discuss how developers can use Scrum and Kanban in concert to optimize the development process, through:
• Identification of problems that arise in Scrum that Kanban can help with;
• The basics of Kanban;
• How to apply one-piece-flow to Scrum;
• Smoothing out problems at the iteration boundary by applying the decoupling principle;
• The value of work-in-progress limits and how to apply them to Scrum;
