Questioning the Perception of Agile

In his first session, "See Large Scale Multi-stage Continuous Integration in Real Time," Mr. Poole will discuss the practice of multi-stage continuous integration and demonstrate how even geographically distributed teams can improve the orchestration of this Agile build management process. Attendees will learn an effective way to virtually eliminate downtime associated with mainline broken builds. View the full listing here.

For those skeptical of Agile, Mr. Poole will facilitate his second session, "Calling All Agile Skeptics, the Curious, and Die-Hard non-Agile." This open forum will provide non-Agilist attendees with an opportunity to raise objections, doubts or horror stories. Experienced Agilists will also be able to share both positives and negative experiences, as well as respond helpfully to skeptics' questions. View the full listing here.

In his final session, "Questioning the Perception of Agile," Mr. Poole will facilitate discussion around the commonly held misperceptions and misconceptions of Agile. Attendees will help with suggestions for enhancing the Agile message to minimize this issue and help stop the continued propagation of misinformation. View the full listing here.
