    Jeffson Dsouza / Vijeth Hegde - Dojo – Taking Agile and DevOps To The Next Level

    20 Mins

    Structured around the principles of “Less Is More”, learning focus, impediment busting at speed, and early failures being stepping stones to success, the Dojo way enhances not only delivery processes, but also coaching, transformation and problem solving in Agile and DevOps, removing anti-patterns, minimizing variability, and realizing true value for investments. It takes collaboration and focus to the next level with hyper-sprint enabled faster feedback loops, stake-holder interactions and multiple trials for the optimal solution.

1. What got you started/interested in modern software development methods?

IT industry nurtures and promotes a growth mindset. This is where change is the only constant, new ideas are born and there is an endless learning opportunity. Having spent an ample amount of time in the industry and being aware of business processes has helped me solve my client’s problems through innovative & modern solutions thereby assisting them to remain ahead of market competition. My passion for continuous learning has helped me remain up to date with market trends and happenings in the software development domain.

2. What do you think is the biggest challenge faced by the software product engineering community today?

I think with economy continues to improve , more and more companies moving to the cloud ;many of them have already made the jump ,so in my opinion the next biggest challenge will be on Securing the cloud assets across the multiple /hybrid cloud environments , protecting the data . Companies will emphasize on implementing privacy by design and many more readiness towards new security threats . And the way we are speeding towards the Digital Transformation, it is no longer going to be a journey but a move in a sprint ; and to match that speed the another biggest challenge we all are facing is getting the right skills.

3. What do you think are the most exciting developments in software product engineering today?

When I look around, I see we are surrounded by software-reliant systems today, this keeps us developing continuously evolving systems - we have the AI-Augmented software development, we are re-envisioning the entire software product development process with increased AI. Advance computing with the use of quantum mechanics is creating new engineering innovations. Then with IoT,5G; this Smarter edge is a catch of all the new advancements. Digital twins, Extended Reality are another set of developments in IT which are creating new opportunities. All these developments are very exciting as they arise quickly and grow to become integral parts of our life..

4. Why did you choose the topic(s) you will be speaking about at the conference?

This is interesting, because it answers to your one of the question that what are the biggest challenges today we are facing. And as I said, Skills gap is the biggest worry of every organization and DOJO which was my topic of the conference is one of the enabler trying to bridge and address that gap. DOJO is a way to coach the talent for what is required today in IT.

5. What are some of the key takeaways from your session(s) at Agile India?

My key takeaway from DOJO session  - experiment with DOJO ,experience the change ;I am sure you will adapt it in your new way of working.

6. Which sessions are you particularly looking forward to attending at Agile India this year?

I think all of the sessions listed in conference are exciting and worth attending but I would be more interested in knowing more about ways or experiences on How the Digital disruptions and innovations are re-inventing the business today.

7. Any personal remarks/message you want to share with the software community?

I think what we all need today is more such sessions because such platforms gives us chance to learn from each other. It open our minds and leads us to many more great opportunities.
