Fast, Easy & Safe - 5 years at a FinTech

schedule 02:15 PM - 03:00 PM place EN 304 (C40) people 16 Attending

Navigating the growth phase of a financial technology startup has been an exciting and rewarding experience.  However, delivering software in a competitive marketplace whilst maintaining a stable and reliable platform can be very challenging when the cost of mistakes are high.

In this session you'll hear about the importance of creating a resilient, collaborative, flexible, adaptable and trusting workplace to ensure a stable and highly available platform.  We'll discuss organisational design, Agile processes and the lessons learned through success and failure that have enabled a Melbourne startup to grow to a global payments leader.

    Hey Tim, 

    Thanks for the proposal, it's great to see you here too. Just wanted to check if the "Fast, Easy & Safe" title is related in any way to the SAFe framework.

    Thanks, Gabor

          I will be discussing applying agile methods at a reasonable scale (50-100 staff), however we don't use SAFe to do this.

            That works fine. I hope you got the acceptance e-mail and will come to the conference (and the speaker workshop on Tuesday as well).
