The Game Has Changed – Jeff Patton – Feb 27 Sydney
We all know how fast technology changes. But, we sometimes fail to understand how fast our process needs to change to keep up. This talk is about how 21st century software development has thrown out most of the process assumptions you might have originally learned. Jeff Patton will explain how Product Thinking, Lean Startup Thinking, and Continuous Delivery have fundamentally changed how we design and build software.
