Topic: Is Agile Any Better?
Speaker: Damon Poole


Is Agile Any Better?

When considering Agile development, there are three approaches you can use: believe the hype and hope for the best, look for documented ROI studies, or find people that you trust at a company with similar circumstances that have done it successfully and learn from them. But there is another way.

This session will examine traditional and Agile development from an architectural and algorithmic perspective to show exactly how and why they work and contrast their differences and similarities. At the end of this session you will have everything you need to draw your own conclusions about the algorithms and architectures of Agile development versus traditional development.

If you are already an Agile proponent, this session will give you more material to draw on when discussing the merits of Agile with those that have not yet discovered its benefits.
