An outdoor agile meet up, on a bench
YAY! Agile on the Bench
Talk details: It's rare for a developer to get their hands on a greenfield project. Most of us will find ourselves on legacy codebases, most of the time. When dealing with this we all too often assume the previous developers were incompetent, and are happy to tell anyone who will listen. But what if we tried to put ourselves in their shoes instead? Might we find empathy with their situation, and might this give everyone a better experience?
Talk details: Uncertainty (and how winter swimming has helped me embrace it): Waterfall processes tried and failed to eliminate uncertainty from digital development. Agile permits degrees of uncertainty within limits. When we applied agile principles to product discovery the lack of knowledge and certainty seemed overwhelming, but by embracing it and switching off the urge to race to an answer we achieve better outcomes. Regular dips in freezing cold water has been a useful, safe and fun way to practise dealing with uncertain outcomes.
