    Being Agile developer, have tried & tested various flavors of pair programming over the years while working in highly motivated self-managed team. Some experiments worked while some worked better :)

    This talk is about sharing the personal experience of practicing promiscuous pairing which allowed the team to be always in the beginner's mind state and being able to push the boundaries consistently.

    This experience sharing talk is based on our successful adoption of the promiscuous pairing technique based on very famous research paper by Arlo Belshee "Promiscuous Pairing and Beginner’s Mind: Embrace Inexperience".

    The key objectives of Organizations is to provide / derive value from the products / services they offer. To achieve this, they need to be able to deliver their offerings in the quickest time possible, and of good quality!
    In such a fast moving environment, CI (Continuous Integration) and CD (Continuous Delivery) are now a necessity and not a luxury!

    There are various practices that Organizations and Enterprises need to implement to enable CD. Testing (automation) is one of the important practices that needs to be setup correctly for CD to be successful.

    Testing in Organizations on the CD journey is tricky and requires a lot of discipline, rigor and hard work. In Enterprises, the Testing complexity and challenges increase exponentially.

    In this session, I am sharing my vision of the Test Strategy required to make successful the journey of an Enterprise on the path of implementing CD.

    User Experience design is a product design discipline which sits throughout a product's lifecycle, from inception to development to maintenance and all the way to retirement. Waterfall enabled the discipline to have ample time and produce extensive design, in a "big design upfront" approach which rarely involved technical capabilities, and resulted in difficulties in build. The adoption of agile by product development team has offered UX a unique opportunity to work in a much more joined-up manner, and expend the design into the development, enabling the entire team to react to change.

    As a UX designer, I have over the last 7 years developped a solid appreciation of working embedded in an agile development team, and would like to share my experiences through 3 specific projects, sharing my learnings to help development team on-board the UX practitioner, their tools, practices and skills.

    This session will be a case study over 3 projects, highlighting the learnings and steps of the integration of UX into the development cycle. I'm taking Alistair Cockburn's sequence of SHU-HA-RI to detail the progress of my practice and will pay great attention to sharing sufficient context that my experiences and outcomes can be translated to your own projects and team setups.

    Rovio tried 51 games before hitting upon Angry Birds. We tend to hear a lot more about the chart busting numbers of Angry Birds than the struggles of the previous 51 games. In my opinion, their success was the journey of the 52 experiments, and not just the final one.

    We at Levitum recently had learnings from an MVP that we put out, and experiments that we ran. In the spirit of openly sharing how I’ve tried to apply Lean Startup principles to a new venture, I’m going to outline how we went about things, and what I’ve learnt.

    More details on the experiments are available in my blog post http://arg0s.in/what-we-learnt-from-a-failed-mvp.html. My blog post made page one of HackerNews, has had over 20,000 visitors, and has been cited by various practitioners as an example of how to apply lean startup in practice.

    The role of "Architect" is sometimes frowned upon in the Agile community as a central command-and-control authority who bottlenecks decisions and limits team empowerment. Or at least, that is what we thought. Follow the real-life journey of our teams as we discovered how the role of an architect is compatible with Agile principles. We will explore our failures, and eventual discovery on how the role brings can bring an immense amount of value to the organization and the teams, especially on large, multi-team projects.

    Before you write any code, make sure you have a failing test." This was a revolutionary idea, when it was first pitched in the late 90’s. Many successful entrepreneurs have been practicing a similar approach - "Before you build a product/service, make sure you have paying customers." In this talk, Naresh Jain shares his approach of finding effective MVPs to validate his Educational Product and why Agile Methods simply fail to do so. If you are interested in finding out how to maximise your validated learning for minimum investment, then this session is for you. Recently Naresh's article on this topic was published by InfoQ.

    Considering today’s dynamic business environment, where solutions are expected as quickly as possible, adopting only few Agile practices may not help the business in a significant way. This situation becomes further complicated where user experience matters most. From software service Organization perspective, it is further complicated where one has to consider few more parameters like Customer Collaboration (& time), Contracting approach, Domain level standards, Development maturity Standards, etc. Also as usual, productivity loss in transitioning work product from one resource to another. 

    A small step in resolving these pain areas and strike a balance between various needs & constraints, at Altimetrik, we have devised a SDLC framework – based on the concept Unified Resource and various best practices from Agile, Waterfall, Prototype driven development, Assembly approach etc.

    We have been using this approach for our various customer projects and have seen significant benefits.

    In this experience report, we will discuss about the various pain areas of existing development models and how they are overcomed through this customised SDLC framework for some of our clients.
