Agile Architecture and Design – Neal Ford

“There are known unknowns. That is to say there are things that we now know we don’t know. But there are also unknown unknowns. There are things that we do not known we don’t know.” – From the poetry of Donald Rumsfeld In this presentation from JAXConf 2012, ThoughtWorks software architect Neal Ford investigates agile architecture and design, specifically addressing how big up-front architecture and design fail because of the unknown unknowns of a project.

Bringing code to the Cloud and back again

Task-focused Continuous Integration

This talk from Mik Kersten of Tasktop Technologies will explore connecting enterprise Java stacks with cloud deployment via a task-focused continuous integration loop. The SCM, code review, and Agile ALM technologies, based on the Eclipse Mylyn ALM interoperability platform, will be used to demonstrate how to achieve this new level of connectivity and automation between the team and the application. The talk will conclude with a roadmap of how we can apply these new lessons to define the next decade of enterprise Java productivity.
