In 1995, Jeff Sutherland and Ken Schwaber introduced Scrum, today the most popular Agile methodology, according to every Agile report. 

20 years later, that same collaboration, led by Scrum.org, produced Nexus, the proposal from the Scrum creators to Scale Scrum in large Software development initiatives that include hundreds of people. 

Over 45 minutes, we'll explore the Nexus framework, its artefacts and roles, as well as some practices, differences and similarities between Scrum and Nexus. The underlying philosophy will be displayed and discussed. 

We'll also take a look at real organisations already using Nexus to scale their software development efforts using the Scaled Professional Scrum program from Scrum.org to transform their product development

Resources: Nexus is free and available for download on https://www.scrum.org/Portals/0/NexusGuide%20v1.1.pdf

    Martin Hinshelwood - DevOps for Business Agility

    90 Mins

    The goal, or at least it should be, for your organisation is Business Agility. With Business Agility comes the ability for your business to take advantage of opportunities as they present themselves. To get Business Agility you need to be able to allow all of your teams the freedom to use the technology that makes sense. For that we need an ALM & DevOps platform that can support all of our needs and be flexible enough to give freedom, while helping us knit all of the information together.

    Can you tell, across all of your teams, what tests have been run against your current build? Do you know exactly which requirements have been shipped in your current release?

    Come and see Martin show you how to use Visual Studio Online to create a holistic view of your software development delivery pipeline while maintaining the team autonomy that fosters creativity. Manage requirements for a single product while letting each team choose Scrum, Kanban, or something else. Practice continuous delivery while managing your releases with ease and deploying each component with the tools that make sense.
