Keynote by special guest

We will open the day in the ATC 101 lecture theatre. The morning session will see us all together, with a new for 2017, experiment. We haven't tried anything like this before, so we hope it all goes to plan! No more details for now, we'll let you know more when we see you at Swinburne.

    Demand for technologists is fast becoming unfulfillable. The pool of talent is drying up, with the oldies heading into retirement, management or just straight up senility, it is never a more important time than now to grow the next generation of technologists!

    I'll take you on the Junior Developer journey with me, from justifying why Juniors are good for business, how to help them jump In and level up when they first join a team, and then how to continue developing their skills and career throughout their journey. 

    I'll talk problems, benefits, hints, how to use agile to help make the process painless and prosperous, based on a combination of personal experience, local research, and industry practises, plus some ideas a little left of centre.

    Every company with a brand identity either needs a styleguide or could do better.

    A live styleguide forms the lingua-franca between your engineers and designers. We'll show you why you need one, tell you our own journey, then give you the right tools to build a styleguide that is right for your company.

    All your Projects are Red until you deliver something working

    When we decide to move from big batch, plan driven long dated constructs of change, so projects and programs in the traditional sense, to more agile methods, we need to rethink a whole raft of stuff. Assume for a second, if you will, we are using the historical program and project construct to identify and deliver change. Initiatives are bundled into a sequential approach and governed through stages of largely documentation production accordingly. As long as you are on track to the stages, your documents are reviewed and signed off, you are Green.

    Then we disrupt this. We want more agility on how we identify, plan, deploy and release change. We want to deliver outputs to our customers and ultimately value or outcomes earlier and more regularly, which is one of the significant advantages of an agile delivery model. So we get an ROI uplift. Projects can be self funded.

    So lets start a new theory and trial it. EVERY project is red until your first release to a real customer. No more debate, hand wringing, angst or arguments. Recognise and accept that until you have delivered something that tests your theories, is validated and works, and your customers are using it, you have done nothing. Use the RED as it is meant to be - a call to action to pay attention, provide support , facilitate and break through barriers, provide resources and time. Help the team get to done.

    My goal is for the attendees to use this session to actually crowd source and  develop a model that people can take back to their business and propose, from scratch using design thinking and agile techniques.
