Colloquium - Lawrence

ECCS 128

Introduction to Agile Development: Principles and Beyond
Avanade, Inc.

Agile software development is about finding better ways to deliver software than the way we've always done it. It's based on a simple set of principles, things that we believe are true about software development. In this talk, Richard Lawrence will introduce the core agile principles and show how they're applied in Scrum, Extreme Programming, and Lean Software Development ... and how you can apply them on your projects. There will be time for questions and discussion to dig into the areas that interest you most.

Lawrence is Solutions Manager for Agile Delivery at Avanade, Microsoft and Accenture's joint venture. He has been practicing agile software development with XP, Scrum, and Lean since 2001 and is passionate about helping software teams work more productively and more sanely at the same time (yes, it's possible!). Richard is a Certified Scrum Coach and was a speaker at the Agile 2006 and Agile 2007 conferences.

This talk is sponsored by the Computer Science Department ACM Student Chapter.
Free pizza will be served.
