June 12 – 10:15 am to 11:30 am, RM S319
Is your dev team using a development methodology to improve efficiency? Lately it seems like everyone’s implementing the latest development methodology-and whatever new titles and ideas that go along with it. However, alongside these adoption stories you hear tales about broken or half-implemented methodologies. What have you seen succeed? What are some pitfalls of new methodologies and where do they innovate? In this session we’ll discuss various development methodologies, including Continuous Delivery, Scrum, Agile and more-and what may make one successful where others have struggled or failed.
