Enabling Agile Development using Rapid Application Delivery Software Platform

Agile Development has been spoken, tried, implemented and adopted by many enterprises in the last few years. The obvious benefits of Agile Development are faster time to market, lower risk, greater agility and ability to make changes and course correction and having a product that is always ready to ship..

    Hi Mayur,


    As this is more about the tool, can it be a 20 minutes experience report than a 45 minute talk?

      I can certainly make it a 20 min talk. Just that the focus of the talk will be on RAD as a platform and approach to modern application development that enables Agile. 

      So  I will make it a very generic topic as opposed to a specific tool.

    This is an interesting topic, but I think it would be better suited in the Agile in the Trenches or Devops / CD tracks. 

    Also; we strongly recommend attaching example videos or slides. It doesn't have to be on this topic, but something to help the track reviewers in their assessments.
