Agile Teams Need Generalizing Specialists

Wed, March 16, 2016

12:00 pm EDT  |  11:00 am CDT  |  10:00 am MDT  |  9:00 am PDT


Seminar Description:

A central tenet of the Agile methods is collaboration -- all participants in the project being actively involved with each other in all of the project work. While this sounds great in theory, it can be problematic in practice because all team members are not equal.

Most of the Agile methods describe team members as generalists. Some (for example, Extreme Programming) explicitly describe a team of generalists, with no team member owning code or any other thing, and all team members having the authority to do anything that is necessary to achieve the goals of the User Story at hand.

But can we achieve the Agile ideal of full and open collaboration when our team members are not generalists? Is there a place for specialists on Agile teams?

Topics covered:

  • Technical Experts, Agile Generalists, Generalizing Specialists on Agile Teams
  • The role of a specialist in Testing
  • The role of a specialist in Requirements Elicitation

Intro to DevOps for Testers

Tue, March 22, 2016

12:00 pm EDT  |  11:00 am CDT  |  10:00 am MDT  |  9:00 am PDT


Seminar Description:

DevOps aims to break the barriers between Dev and Ops. This also necessitates breaking the barriers between Dev, Test and Ops. Testing operations undergo a major change in a DevOps culture. Therefore, everything changes for testing. The tester's skillset, methods, way they test, when they test and the way they plan and execute. DevOps brings testing into the mainstream of development processes, and avoids the problems created by having "big-bang" testing left to the end of the cycle, such as release delays, and quality issues. In this session, get a brief overview of DevOps and the impact on Software Testers.

Continuous Delivery 101

Tue, March 22, 2016

12:00 pm EDT  |  11:00 am CDT  |  10:00 am MDT  |  9:00 am PDT


Seminar Description:

Continuous Delivery (CD) is gaining steam as a practical set of technical processes for delivering end-to-end application value in a faster, more incremental fashion. Continuous Delivery is also closely associated with DevOps, although there is much debate about exactly how the two terms overlap.

In this one hour web seminar, we will bring some clarification to these topics as we present an overview and take questions on Continuous Delivery. We will relate CD as a set of workflow and IT management practices to DevOps as a cultural movement, and discuss the complex relationship between the two. Key areas of discussion will include:

  • CD: What is it?
  • A brief history of continuous delivery
  • Why CD is so important
  • Continuous Delivery and DevOps
  • Real-world case study: implementing Agile, DevOps, and CD at scale

Intro to DevOps for Business Analysts

Tue, March 29, 2016

12:00 pm EDT  |  11:00 am CDT  |  10:00 am MDT  |  9:00 am PDT


Seminar Description:

DevOps focuses on being lean and eliminating waste by retaining the fundamental principles of Agile. At the same time, it improves the collaboration between dev, IT and ops. So how does all of this impact the BA? A BA has a crucial role to play in coordinating between teams. DevOps is a cultural change. It's about sharing business objectives and getting all the stakeholders working towards a common objective. The BA role can be a key DevOps player and the go-to person for business success. In this session, get a quick introduction to DevOps and the impact it has on the BA and how the BA role can be a factor for organizations.
