The Scrum methodology of agile software development marks a dramatic departure from waterfall management. In fact, Scrum and other agile processes were inspired by its shortcomings. The Scrum methodology emphasizes communication and collaboration, functioning software, and the flexibility to adapt to emerging business realities — all attributes that suffer in the rigidly ordered waterfall paradigm.


Open Source Think Tank 2013

Posted by ewok_bbq under

My favorite yearly conference hosted by the ubersmart Olliance Group.  Olliance was acquired and is now the BlackDuck Consulting wing on issues around Open Source governance and policy. The conference held last year near Napa was a who’s who of the Open Source community.  I was excited to attend as a fill in for the CollabNet CEO Bill Portelli last year.  I am quite excited to say that I was invited back by Olliance – Thanks so much to Andrew Aitken for the invite. I can’t wait to do some thinking and drinking around Open Source.
