Agile Tour 香港站 2012 - 12月1日



Agile Tour自2008年成立至今已經步入第五個年頭,到今屆終於有香港站了!Agile Tour香港站將會舉辦一整天的活動,並邀請國際或本地的Agile專家分享他們的經驗:



題目 : How to suck less with distributed teams
講者 : Emerson Mills

We all know that distributed teams suck. ( Don't we? ) They perform much worse than co-located teams. Unfortunately for places just starting to move to Agile methodologies, it's often a impediment that has to be worked around or removed. In this session we'll discuss some of the illusions about distributed team productivity and how to get around some of the problems before you can move to co-located teams.

  1. Why did we even use them?!
  2. Distribute teams not people
  3. Giving teams ownership of features and not tasks
  4. Sharing a product development culture

題目: Inject start up spirit
講者: Wang XiaoMing

During the past a couple of years I heard many complains from CEOs and senior management that there was unavoidable bureaucracy and large company problems which were their big pain. Many teams suffered unclear project goals, small team but many management layers, ineffective meeting, tons of reports and unstable products. Those problems caused project failure or delay. In this presentation I will lead you to experience a real project in a large company who saved themselves from failure and transferred to a team with start up spirit and doubled their velocity in 4 months.

  1. A real project, double velocity
  2. The pain of founders
  3. Inject start up spirit
  4. Lightweight Agile.

題目: Test Driven Development
講者: Ian Lucas

In this session we will explore Test Driven Development (TDD) utilizing XQuery, the XML Query Language. TDD helps facilitate higher quality software solutions, and the modular nature of XQuery lends itself well to the practice.

  1. TDD in context
  2. Defining Success criteria upfront (i.e. Test Cases as requirements specifications)
  3. Practical examples of TDD with XQuery and XQunit

題目: Agile ate my Project Plan!
講者: Michael Mallete

Among the biggest reasons for the reluctance of organizations in adopting Agile is their belief in the effectiveness of traditional models in estimation and planning. The fear of losing their perceived predictability through their conventional techniques. Agile erases these all and leaves you with a chaotic view of what is to come. But is that truly the case?

We will first explore the assumptions behind traditional estimation and planning techniques
We will then counter that with the assumptions behind Agile estimation and planning
We will show the different features of traditional estimation and planning
We will then show the different features of Agile estimation and planning
We then compare what we actually lose and what we gain when we move toward Agile estimation and planning

題目: DevOps is people: or, "I achieve my KPIs by making you fail to meet yours."
講者: Scott Robinson

"Development" and "operations," as independent organizations, have conflicting motivations. DevOps is the buzzword for the understanding that we've missed the forest (providing value) for the trees (features and stability).

I'll share three true stories about three real organizations.

  1. Exposition (Who is organization and who are the players?)
  2. Rising action (Our business is down.)
  3. Climax (DevOps!)
  4. Falling action (Working together!)
  5. Dénouement (Everyone celebrates their promotions over beer.)
NB. if you work in an organisation with conflicts between development and operations, bring a story to share— and get free advice!
