Guest Speaker: Alan De Ste Croix, Tata Consultancy Services
This seminar is targeted at those working in software development and/or project management. The intention is to provide an insight into the origins of Agile, how it works, why it works and why it can fail.
Most developers are familiar with the Waterfall top-down approach to software development, popularised by Winston Royce. Royce also advocated iterative delivery amongst other themes that are in Agile. So are Agile and Waterfall such poles apart? What approach are you using in your software house?
