Hands on workshop for trunk driven development.

"Branches create distance between developers and we do not want that"
— Frank Compagner, Guerrilla Games

Trunk based development is an agile engineering practice to attain a state of continuous deployment, but what is being observed in the industry is that most of the teams struggle to apply this concept .This workshop is a practical keyboard driven workshop which will enable the participants to have a in-depth understanding and know how to apply the concept.Workshop will cover typical antipatterns and myths related to trunk based development.

      Ranjith Tharayil / Jeffson Dsouza - The Art of Crafting High Performing Teams

      45 Mins

      Dojo Labs is an Agile product development framework built on the concept of hyper sprints. Dojo Labs as a process framework is built on the fundamentals of SCRUM, XP, and Agile Dojo. It enables teams to build “E-shaped” skills with high technical agility. This talk is about our experiences with respect to our experiments with dojo as a product development framework across different domains. Our experiences include mostly learning from failures and successes and hence the session would be driven by case studies. We will also be discussing our studies on teams that adopted dojo as a way of working which showcased substantial improvement in predictability, productivity, and technical agility. We will also touch upon how dojo acted as a constructive constrain to triggers change for good. Last but not the least we will also discuss our SENSEI program which helped us scale our dojo capability of practitioners

      Infra as code has already been a well-established practice in the DevOps community. In this workshop, we would be discovering how infra as code and test-first development could go hand in hand. Test-Driven Infrastructure as a practice is an upcoming radical approach towards developing modern web infrastructure. This keyboard driven demo will include practical examples that will enable the participants to gain hands-on knowledge in this technique.

      Ranjith Tharayil - SHE QC A story grooming technique

      90 Mins
      Hands on Session

      SHE QC is an effective technique to structure your never-ending grooming meetings. The SHE QC style of grooming is an effective style for complex stories especially when we need different viewpoints to be considered. One can use the technique to structure their 3 Amigo discussion to elaborate and define scenarios. It is a highly structured & time-boxed grooming technique used by advanced engineering teams to learn, define what needs to develop and remove any second-degree ignorance - “I don’t know I don’t know something”. The technique enables teams to groom stories in a more continuous manner and ideal for teams operating in a hyper sprint mode.
