Keynote at the Hustef Budapest 2018
‘Breaking silos within cross-functional teams’!
When agile methods were introduced , we faced a new challenge: how to be cross functional? How to be a tester with developer background? Introducing Agile methodologies and setting up Scrum/Kanban teams in organizations brings a tremendous change in the way traditional software development was produced. This talk is about hands-on experience, how spreading skills among Scrum team members, supported by a T-Shape Community of Practice as company strategy, nurtured a learning culture within the Agile organization, broke the traditional silos of expertise, and increased the efficiency of the teams and the people who worked in them.
Agile Tour London 2018 ‘DevOps and People: where automation begins!’
Automate everything! is the message continuous delivery drivers broadcast… and this is great! Introducing test automation enormously steps up the quality of any product, and continuous integration is playing an essential and decisive role in the world of software development. What we should not overlook is, the key role people play as automation enablers. When it comes to complex DevOps scenarios, as it is the case in the telecommunication world, the recipe for success is the intensive collaboration of all parties involved. In this talk I take a closer look at some scenarios where developers and operators go for broke in order to achieve an outstanding DevOps success story.
