Let’s get this meetup restarted! This is an opportunity to steer the future for who will speak and what topics we will cover over the next few months
I think there are some interesting topics to discuss– lots going on now that agile has crossed the chasm and is well into mass adoption. Some thoughts I had:
Choosing an agile method: Kanban, Scrum, LeSS, Heart of agile, or what? Does a framework like Cynefin provide any guidance that may be helpful?
Automated tests: tips and tricks. How to reduce the pain. Balancing test coverage vs pain of maintenance. Feature testing, BDD, and other variants. New vendor offerings.
DevOps. IaaS and CI/CD. Different tools? Integrated? Dedicated build master?
Git, GitHubFlow, GitFlow, and GitLabFlow. Discuss…
Limitations of automated code migrations and CI/CD. Can schema migration reliably be automated?
How to deal with an agile implementation that has stalled or “failed?” Post-mortem analysis and brainstorming where/how to go from here.
Just to get things started I will present a talk I just gave at AgileDC on 10/25 for instituting Agile when you encounter resistance: highly regulated, heavy compliance, legacy software, etc.
