I'll be speaking at Scrum Day Europe, July 8
June 10, 2021I'll be speaking at Scrum Day Europe on July 8 on "Why DevOps is essential for Agile success"
For those of you working with Scrum, July 8 is the virtual conference Scrum Day Europe, and I’ll be giving the following presentation:
Scrum Isn’t Enough: Why DevOps is essential for Agile success
When Scrum was formulated, it was seen as a “wrapper” for more technical agile practices, such as Extreme Programming. A conscious choice was made to focus on the relationship between software developers and management. It was assumed that Scrum would be used to promote more technical developer practices, which Scrum leaves unaddressed. DevOps not only works hand-in-glove with Scrum to fill in these missing gaps, it is more and more seen as an essential tool for Agile success.
Since it’s entirely virtual, you don’t need to be in Europe to attend. There are still a tickets available, and you can use coupon code
SCRUM.ORG FRIEND to save 95 EUR on a regular ticket (does not apply to early bird).
Scrum is great in theory, but "it will never work in the real world"
I think there are two "real worlds", and they often clash. One where Agile, Scrum, XP, and DevOps make perfect sense. Another where they don't.
Pick a methodology: Scrum, Kanban, XP, Lean or DevOps?
None of these items directly replaces or conflicts with any of the others. In fact, you can use them all simultaneously.
Does Scrum make sense for a "DevOps Team"?
Scrum is about progressing toward the sprint goal. If you don't have a reasonable sprint goal because you're interrupt driven, maybe Scrum isn't right for you.
