My summary of Agile 2018

In my  opinion the best part of  the conference was what happen outside the sessions: informal talks with old and new colleagues.  Beyond that, I really enjoy some of the sessions.

  • I liked the keynote session by Troy Magennis about Agile Data (video here)
  • The session “Database DevOps: Strategies to Address DevOpsLast Mile” by Scott Ambler was really interesting (slides here)
  • One of the most interesting sessions for me was  “Building evolutionary cloud infrastructure“, it presented a really useful model (slides here). Beyond the slides some of the content of the session is available in the website
  • The Impact Mapping workshop delivered by John Hughes and Rachet Whitt allowed me to practice this technique for the first time and I think I will include it in software engineering course.
  • The session “Stepping Stones in Refactoring to Microservices” delivered by Amr Noaman (slides here) provided a interesting but controversial method to move to microservices

There were some other sessions that I couldn’t attend and that received very good feedback from my collegues:

  • Agile Quantified (Measuring the impact of Agility) by Larry Maccherone (no slides available)
  • The 12-factor pipeline by Juni Mukherjee (slides here)

Finally, I am very happy with the session I delivered: “Principles of Self-Service Infrastructure“, it was recorded so I will shared the video as soon as the organization publishes it.
