YOW! Night 2018 Sydney/Melbourne – Dave West – Nov 13, 15

ScrumOps – Making Agile and DevOps work to build the 21 st century product delivery organization

The Software delivery community is famous for creating new initiatives as the next silver bullet. OOP, CMMI, Spiral, Iterative, RUP, RAD are just some of the trends that have challenged how people approach the discipline of delivering software. Now it is agile and DevOps. Or should I say, it was Agile and now it is DevOps? The Agile movement, named February 2001 focused organizations on empowering teams and working in an empirical way. DevOps, started in 2009 and focuses on holistic system thinking and automation to remove waste and better connect development and operations. Both movements focus on delivering an improved delivery capability, but they approach it differently. Automation vs people, process vs empowerment. Are they different? Should organizations focus on one or another in trying to deliver more value to their customers?

In this talk Dave West, Product Owner and CEO Scrum.org discusses how DevOps and Scrum/Agile can work effectively together to deliver improved customer value. It describes the challenges of DevOps or Scrum first, and why it is important to use the Scrum team as the foundation for DevOps maturity, and where traditional operations and IT fit.

YOW! Night Perth/Singapore – Sam Aaron – Dec 11, Dec 13

Live Coding the intersection between the Arts, Technology and Research

Live Coding systems encourage us to think extremely differently about programming languages. In addition to considering standard requirements such as reliability, efficiency and correctness we are also forced to deal with issues such as liveness, coordination and synchronization all whilst working in real time.

Live Coders not only run and modify our code live — they often performing with it live on stage in front of large crowds of people who really don’t want the code to miss a beat. In this code and demo-heavy talk, Sam will introduce the motivation for Sonic Pi – a system designed specifically for live coding music – before taking a deep technical dive into the internal ideas and innovations. The audience will explore Sonic Pi’s novel temporal semantics which allows multiple concurrent threads to execute in synchronization whilst still allowing live hot-swapping of code.

Ultimately, everyone will discover an exciting an exciting area of programming language research in an approachable and instructive manner all whilst making some sick beats and drops.
