Houston PMI The Woodlands
Program: "Project Methodologies"
  • Mara Saltz, MBA, PMP, CSM / Sr Project Manager, Dovetail

    Information and Registration

    Multiple project management methodologies have been around for a while. Often times project managers are expected to use waterfall at the exclusion of agile and vice versa. Within the world of agile, there may be an expectation to choose one of Scrum, Kanban or other frameworks based on current trends. That said, one doesn’t have to choose. Often times the best solution is a hybrid project management approach that brings benefits from multiple methods. In this seminar, we’ll be discussing what hybrid project management means, why it’s important and a case study that demonstrates how it can be creatively applied to solve business problems.

    Agile Leadership Network Houston
    Program: Software Development Best Practices for Startups
  • M. Sean FitzGerald, Director Of Software Development at EXACTUALS LLC

    Information and Registration

    Competitiveness in business today requires agility and velocity, and that typically means software. This is especially true for any company developing software for internally use or for sales to customers. There are organizations using leading-edge techniques such as Agile and DevOps to develop software faster, more efficiently and at very low defect rates. At the heart of these techniques are principles applied by practices such as Continuous Integration (CI), Continuous Delivery (CD) and DevOps that can provide a significant competitive advantage.

    This presentation will take a short journey into a couple of these techniques from the perspective of software operations and maximizing the investment in software. We start with the challenges in producing quality software and the impact of testing, or in many cases, the impact of not testing software. Organization interdependent operational processes will be briefly discussed to expose some of the potential complexities in obtaining software velocity. Technical debt is introduced with an emphasis on the potential cost burden it can have on an organization’s ability to deliver software quality in a timely manner. Cost of change and its relationship to testing, quality, cost and velocity is examined. We then move to avoiding technical debt which introduces approaches that reduce technical debt, increase code quality and create business velocity by using Agile and DevOps. This will take us to an overview of DevOps Continuous Integration, Continuous Delivery and Continuous Deployment which is the end goal of this presentation.

    Audience for this presentation is entrepreneurs, startups, software engineers, IT Operations, executives or anyone that would like to better understand DevOps and its adoption.
