Retrospective Sailing Workshop, Belinda Waldock – Agile Practices 2017

Agile Retrospective Sailing Workshop

Retrospective Sailing – an agile reflection game A hands on workshop facilitating a practical retrospective game. Retrospective Sailing is a game you can play as an individual in any role, as part of a development team, or, with clients and customers to help understand how your journey is fairing. This game will give you a new and fun way to run a retrospective to help to gain your bearings, identify what’s putting the wind in your sails, the anchors holding you back, and discover hidden treasure. Then you’ll plot your course and map a way forward that raises those anchors and catches the tide and a fair wind. Attendees will be introduced to the game and try it out themselves. They’ll be case examples and tips for facilitating the game too. Join us for some constructive fun, practical outcomes, and a useful tool to take back to the office.

Red, Green, then what? Adrian Mowat – Agile Software Delivery Workshop 2017

Red, Green, then what?  Adrian Mowat
3:15pm – 4:59pm Jul 6
The “refactor” step in TDD is deceptively simple: you just have to improve the code, without changing what it does, right? And the experts make it look so easy: “Look”, they say, “here’s some duplication, which I will remove by <insert magic incantation here>”. But how should you decide which “duplication” to remove first? What happens if you fix the “wrong” smell? And how do you even see that duplication in the first place? In this workshop you will learn the value of Coupling as a practical tool to help plan and manage refactoring. You will explore a smelly codebase using Connascence – an objective approach to discovering and measuring the important Coupling in an application. You won’t be writing any code, but please bring a laptop so that you can download the sample code and navigate it using your preferred IDE.
