Lee Faus (GitHub) Keynote: The new Agile and the Next Gen Developer
When the forefathers of Agile met to write the manifesto that provides the guiding principles of Agile software development, Wikipedia was just formed, the iPod hadn’t launched, and the first versions of IntelliJ IDEA and Eclipse were in beta. The principles of Agile have not changed. More than ever, we strive to satisfy the customer through early and continuous delivery of valuable software.
Developers welcome changing requirements, deliver working software frequently, and collaborate with other people through the whole process. As software eats the world, software development will be democratized – more people will code, contribute and commit on platforms and tools that are more accessible than ever before. The value of a “developer” will be their problem-solving mindset and ability to work with and learn from others. In this keynote, you’ll hear from Lee Faus, Senior Solutions Architect at GitHub, developer, open source contributor, and teacher about the evolution of the software development process and the mindset of the Next Gen Developer to succeed in the New Agile.
