Interested professionals can register at www.Luxoft.com as well as access the lectures on Luxoft’s Youtube channel.
“The successful launch of the Luxoft Technology Series (LTS) is a great indication that LTS has the potential to become to the IT industry an IT “TEDx.” It is exciting to have the chance to give our participants the opportunity to listen to IT experts from around the world who have acquired a rockstar-status. Our first webinar featured Shai Almog, the CEO and Co-Founder of Codename One, a popular platform that allows Java developers to write mobile applications for all devices. The overwhelming positive feedback to Shai Almog gives us incentive to be equally as excited to bring yet a second IT Star to the red carpet with Scott Ambler,” says Przemysław Berendt, VP Global Marketing, Luxoft.
Scott Ambler is a well-known author of numerous books focused on the Disciplined Agile Delivery process decision framework, the Unified process, Agile software development, the Unified Modeling Language, and CMM-based development.
As Mr. Ambler will explain the Disciplined Agile Delivery (DAD) process decision framework is a hybrid which adopts proven strategies from Scrum, XP, Agile Modeling, Outside In Development, Lean/Kanban, DevOps, and others in a disciplined manner. DAD provides goal-driven, tailorable advice for the full solution delivery lifecycle that goes beyond the software-construction focus of other agile methods. Because delivery teams do not work in a vacuum DAD is enterprise aware, showing how agile teams can leverage and enhance their existing IT ecosystem in a governable manner. DAD is at the forefront of the new generation of agile/lean methods for the enterprise.
During Scott Ambler’s LTS Webinar you will learn:
- What the Disciplined Agile Delivery (DAD) framework is all about.
- Why a hybrid approach is necessary for enterprise development.
- How to take a goal-driven, instead of a prescriptive approach.
- Why a full delivery lifecycle is required and what your options are actually.
- What complexity factors you need to consider when scaling and tailoring DAD.
- What it means to be enterprise aware.
