Description

YOW! DDD By Night? DDD by YOW! Night? - whichever way you slice it, YOW! and DDD Perth are excited to kick off 2019 with our special guest Kevlin Henney. Kevlin is a software architect, software design and patterns expert, and is one of Europe’s most popular keynote speakers.



AGILITY ≠ SPEED

Velocity. Sprints. More points, more speed.


An obsession with speed often overtakes the core values of agile software development. It's not just development of software; it's development of working software. Sprints are not about sprinting; they're about sustainable pace. Time to market is less important than time in market. Full-stack development is normally a statement about technology, but it also applies to individuals and interactions. The full stack touches both the code and the world outside the code, and with that view comes responsibility and pause for thought. Doing the wrong thing smarter is not smart. The point of a team is its group intelligence not its numbers. Is scaling up the challenge, or is scaling down the real challenge?


The distraction and misuse of speed, velocity, point-based systems, time, team size, scale, etc. is not the accelerant of agile development. Agility lies in experimentation, responsiveness and team intelligence.
