When agile goes bad: How to stay calm and move forward


Dundee: Wednesday, 23rd September, 2009 @ 19:00

The Talk

With applying agile methodologies comes changes in many aspects of delivering software. And with any change will come a time when something fails. How to convince the undecided? How to keep everyone calm? How to provide practical solutions to prevent people from reverting back to non-agile practices at the first roadblock? Through examples gathered from personal experience and the community, we’ll explore ways to prevent the boat from sinking at the first spilled glass of water.

The Speaker

Sebastien Lambla is a developer passionate about all things agile. Through years of facilitating the move to agility, be it Scrum, Lean or XP, Sebastien has helped teams deliver better software. A seasoned speaker, Sebastien also delivers training sessions in Europe, and organizes the local alt.net events in London, a community focused on self-improvement.

A developer at heart, Sebastien has created Caffeine IT, an consulting and contracting company specializing in Microsoft technologies. From REST architectures to rich disconnected clients, Caffeine IT has been helping companies develop their products and empower their teams, with a focus on quality. Caffeine IT is also the main sponsor of the open-source OpenRasta REST framework for Microsoft platforms.

The Venue

We are meeting in the Queen Mother Building at Dundee University. After the meeting we normally retire to the bar at Laing’s.
