Agile Conference Top 10 of All Time

Thursday, September 24, 2020, 2pm ET  |  1pm CT  |  11am PT

For the past twelve or so years, Synerzip has participated in the Annual Agile Alliance Agile Conference. After attending each Conference, Synerzip’s co-founders, Hemant Elhence, CEO, and Vinayak Joglekar, CTO has presented their “Top 10 Takeaways” via roadshows to spread their learnings to those who may not be able to make the actual conference.

With 2020 being a crazy COVID-19 year, all of our beloved Conferences are either virtual or canceled all-together, as was the case with AGILE2020 Orlando, sponsored by Agile Alliance.

That’s not gonna stop Synerzip! We’ve taken the time to go back through all our years of participating in the worldwide Conference to come up with our Top 10 of All Time.

Join Hemant and Vinayak as we stroll through the years to discover learnings, observations and many changes in our software world.

In this webinar, we’ll show how some predictions about Agile have remained steadfast and widely accepted over the years, while some that sounded too good to be true were just that. We’ll also explore how some practices that sounded radical yesterday have become commonplace today.

Our Top 10 will revolve around the following:

~Organization and culture: Agile has transformed the way companies put together people. This section lays out ideas that withstood the test of time and those that fizzled away. Our takeaways are based on first-hand experimentation.
~Business Agility: Agile contributed significantly to the fundamental fabric of a technology business. The key goal was to align efforts to business value delivered. Here we discuss roles and responsibilities that have become key based on core tenets that play an important role today.
~Agile methodology: It is fairly obvious that Agile itself has evolved. It now has many variants and people have adapted it to suit their specific needs. In this section, we talk about the cornerstones of Agile that continue to show success paths while some ideas that turned out to be castles in the sand.
~DevOps: This function rose to prominence with the growth of cloud infrastructure. DevOps is responsible to ensure that software production and deployment are smooth. However, from being specialized roles these seem to be now subsumed by developers themselves.
