Add to calendar
Thursday, June 11, 2020 - 10:00am to 11:00am

Agile and DevOps transformations have been key for speeding up software development via projects. But development is still often segregated from the business, and work is frequently prioritized based on making the project successful, not on what can bring the most value to the business and end-users. Agile and DevOps are not enough; a new approach is needed. Wendy Flowers will discuss why the gap between modern technical practices and the business is causing organizations to fail, and suggest a different way to think about what you're developing.

Everything I Learned about Agile Coaching I Learned in Little League

What does teaching a 7-year-old how to hit a baseball have to do with agile coaching? After coaching Little League for eight years, and agile teams for ten years, Steven Granese thought he was an expert at both. Last year, while attending a New York Yankees coaching clinic, he quickly realized that he had much to learn. Rather than focusing on isolated mechanics, the Yankees believe in coaching toward achieving measurable outcomes. Their approach allows players to learn the “how” at their own pace through self-discovery and experimentation, which allows for deeper learning and longer-...

Using Security Chaos Engineering to Build Protected, Resilient Systems

Add to calendar
Thursday, June 11, 2020 - 4:45pm to 5:45pm

The speed and scale of complex system operations within cloud-driven architectures make them extremely difficult for humans to mentally model their behavior. This often results in unpredictable and catastrophic outcomes that become costly when unexpected security incidents occur. There is a need to realign the actual state of operational security measures in order to maintain an acceptable level of confidence that our security actually works when we need it to. As an alternative to simply reacting to failures, the security industry has been overlooking valuable chances to further...

Lessons Learned Moving to Trunk-Based Development

Add to calendar
Thursday, June 11, 2020 - 4:45pm to 5:45pm

Moving from a branching model, such as GitFlow, to trunk-based development isn't trivial or easy, but it is definitely worth the effort if increasing release velocity is your goal. Craig Sebenik led the transition to “trunk dev” at a couple of companies after being involved in a massive project at LinkedIn. Join Craig as he describes trunk dev and gives his perspective on the scenarios where the different flavors work best. Discuss what you lose by moving away from a branching model and what you gain with trunk dev, and why that transition will set up the team for future growth and faster...
