Winning your clients’ trust with Agile project management Laura Delnevo – Agile Teams 2016

Winning your clients’ trust with Agile project management Laura Delnevo Cameron & Wilding

Having worked with a variety of clients and projects in the publishing sector (TMG, Sage Publications, The Economist), winning client’s trust is the underlining common denominator of success for me, as a project manager. For my agency this translate to: happy, satisfied and (hopefully) returning customers. Agile is at the core of all of this!

Mia Filisch & Hanif Jameel : Empowering Teams To Change: From Components To Features – Agile Teams 2016

Mia Filisch & Hanif Jameel : Empowering Teams To Change: From Components To Features

The organisation of work around siloed component based teams can lead to difficulties in maximising the value delivered by a development process, and introduce coordination overheads which are difficult to resolve. At the same time, managing changes to the structure of teams is often a challenging process, especially if they are directly imposed. In this session we will explore the key lessons and insights gleaned from a developer and product led iterative transition to feature based teams.

Software Keynote

J. B. (Joe) Rainsberger, Canadian software development consultant and technology writer will be joining us at Agile on the Beach 2014 to deliver our software keynote

Keynote Slides  //  Video http://echo.falmouth.ac.uk:8080/ess/echo/presentation/cbb8e745-bb4d-4fb3-890f-ae895f1f3551

He has traveled the world sharing what he’s learned, hoping to help other people get what they want out of work and out of their lives.

PLUS Bonus Double Session

Joe Rainsberger – Legacy Code Retreat (Rescuing Legacy Code Without Fear)

Few forces limit your ability to deliver the way that legacy code does. At Code Retreat (http://www.coderetreat.com), you focus on the craft of software development by working on a very simple exercise with a wide variety of people and in a wide variety of ways. Legacy Code Retreat (http://www.legacycoderetreat.org) runs a little differently. We give you a code base to start from (in over 20 programming languages so far) and we guide you with the techniques that have helped us most in our work.

Join us for a Mini-Retreat, where you’ll dive into unfamiliar code head-first–code that’s just bad enough to annoy, but not so bad as to send you back to bed. You’ll try two key rescue techniques, we’ll discuss our experiences, and at least one of you will want to know to run your own Legacy Code Retreat. I’ll tell you how.

Are projects agile? – Andy Longshaw, LexisNexis

Workshop

Most good software has a long life and evolves continuously, keeping pace with the needs of its users whereas, a project is a temporary structure. Some agile software projects have succeeded, and some have failed. What is it that differentiated those that succeeded from those that failed? Do projects even make sense in a truly agile software development context?

Agile Marketing: The Incomplete Guide – Gez Smith – Agile Business 2016

Agile Marketing: The Incomplete Guide  –  Gez Smith, Bunny Picnic Ltd

A great session from Gez Smith on Agile Marketing

For years, marketers have used up-front planning and specification to launch campaigns in a single big bang. This worked in predictable and well-understood environments, like TV and press advertising, but the Internet has now made marketing far more complex, fast-paced and uncertain. As a result, the old approaches often don’t work, and the answer may lie in agile.

However sometimes it can be hard to keep the business bought in to the idea of a very expensive team doing ‘nothing’ one day a fortnight. I’ll also share tips and tricks to get your team to make the most of their Learning and Development time without telling them what to do!

Cornwall Ranked 2nd highest growth cluster in UK Tech Nation Report

Cornwall’s growing tech community has been featured in the 2016 Tech Nation report produced by the Government funded programme Tech City and Nesta.

Download the Full report Tech Nation 2016

Cornwalls Capital and surrounding areas gained the attention of the Tech Nation Team following the high response to its survey run in late 2015.

Featured as an emerging cluster it ranks 2nd for growth in the UK with 153% Growth in Digital Turnover, exceeding Londons 101% (2010-2014)

AIMG_4288dditional statistics reported include a +127% GVA (2010-2014), £31 million Digital GVA and a digital density of 17%.

“A rural location has traditionally been seen as a weakness. Cornwall is dissolving that urban myth, driven by superfast connectivity, a pipeline for delivering tech skills and a strong collaborative community.” Belinda Waldock

The report features Agile on the Beach and local businesses Headforwards, Crowdfunder, Sullivan Cuff and Bluefruit as well as Truro Penwith and Cornwall Colleges.

It paints an attractive picture for the area highlighting Cornwalls Superfast connectivity and strong community, as well as our strong heritage of being leaders of engineering revolutions!

One of Software Cornwalls key objectives as a network is to help improve the visibility and awareness of our cluster nationally so we are delighted to have been able to co-ordinate and organise the Tech Nation feature with the help of the community.

Thank you all for your contributions and support of Software Cornwall in making this possible!  We will be sharing the report to help highlight and raise awareness of our sector both here in Cornwall and more widely.

Photo Blog : Anna-Jayne Metcalfe from Riverblade Overview of Agile on the Beach 2013

agile026The third Agile on the Beach conference was held on Tremough Campus, Penryn (near Falmouth in Cornwall) on 5th and 6th September 2013. As last year, the event attracted not only tech businesses, but also non-tech organisations (e.g. a legal practice and a university department) who are applying the principles of agile software development to run processes and workflows within their own organisations. Done well, agile thinking and principles can be applied to just about any workflow – it doesn’t have to be about software.

This years conference was a great success by any metric. It sold out several times (with the organisers somehow managing to squeeze in more places each time as more people kept trying to register…) and that was certainly reflected in the energy visible at the event. I think in the end there were something like 170 delegates, which is a big increase on last year and compares very favourably with the 350-400 or so you can expect at the (far more established) ACCU Conference which we also take part in.

As others are writing far more eloquently than I about the detail of some of the sessions presented at the conference, I’m going to present more of a visual overview of the event – call it a photoblog post, if you like.
