Agile Ramp-up Strategies for Developers and their Teams

Ramp-ups are hard. Like surfing, satellite launches, or startups, a lot of energy needs to be invested in ramping up on a new software project before you even begin to do the real work of development. That can feel frustrating. And there are plenty of opportunities for waste. But the ramp-up can also be an incredible opportunity to win a team's trust, and set the project up for success when done intentionally and with an eye on the principles of the Agile Manifesto. In this talk Ian Carroll will be sharing his experiences and lessons learned from ramping-up again and again on client projects at 8th Light.

Your Presenter:

Ian Carroll
Ian Carroll is a Software Crafter at the 8th Light Consultancy. Before graduating from 8th Light's apprenticeship program, he developed a one-person agile process based on scrum which he used to teach himself software engineering. His degree is in Theatre. When he is not championing agile processes, open source software, or clean code, he can be found at Improv Theatre performing in full-length improvised plays in the style of Jane Austen or Tennessee Williams. Ian has a series of Faster Than Lightning talks available on his YouTube channel.
