    On Agile teams, collaboration is the way of life. Our leaders want their team members to work closely with each other, have shared goals and even think as one entity. Why? Because we believe that collaboration leads to happier, more productive teams that can build innovative products/services.

    It's strange that companies use the word collaboration very tightly with innovation. Collaboration is based on consensus building, which rarely leads to visionary or revolutionary products/services. Innovative/disruptive concepts require people to independently test out divergent ideas without getting caught up in collaborative boardroom meetings.

    In this presentation, Naresh Jain explores the scary, unspoken side of collaboration and explains in what context, collaboration can be extremely important; and when it can get in the way or be a total waste of time.

    Code that is difficult to understand, hard to modify and challenging to extend is hazardous to developers, users and organizations. Refactoring, or improving the design of existing code, is one of our greatest defenses against such code. In this talk, I’ll discuss the value of refactoring, how we practice it safely, when and why we refactor, the power of refactoring tools and when we avoid refactoring.  I’ll be using several real-world examples of refactoring and sharing what I’ve learned about this important practice of the last 20 years.

    45 Mins
    Case Study

    Cultural change is hard and in big organizations, it is even tougher to effect.

    When it happens, it happens gradually.

    As change agents and coaches, who are working on the ground everyday, sometimes it feels like there is no change happening at all.

    The trick is to take a step back, move away from the bits and bytes, and take a look at the longer, broader picture.

    So we did just that and the results are heartening.

    We would like to share the cultural evolution in Amdocs Delivery and how being Agile is gradually being built into the fabric of our organization.

    And we would like to share it through images, info-diagrams, pictures - we like to think of it as a time-lapse representation of the change we are undergoing.

    We like who we are becoming - and we would like to share our story with you!


    Who are we?

    Amdocs is a leader in Customer Experience Systems and Services. We are more than 20,000 professionals across the globe, serving customers in more than 70 countries.

    There are programmers... and then there are great programmers..The ones that are 10x.

    10x development is not only about speed. It is much more - its about creating 10x value.

    As one blog author puts it beautifully "A 10x developer will have insights and find solutions that would never occur to an average programmer; they will avoid entire categories of problems that eat up enormous amounts of time amongst average programmers. 10 engineers writing the wrong code could definitely be out performed by a single engineer writing the right code."

    Their behaviors and practices are visible. We see them in action. This excellence is rarely a matter of only skill. It's coming from deep within. The things that drive them, the values and principles that guide them essentially result into the 10x performance that we see.

    In this session, we will see what going on in the minds of these 10x programmers. What is the stuff that makes them 10x.
