The Future of ALM: Developing in the Social Code Graph (Grand Ballroom DEFG)
The open source movement has turned the Application Lifecycle Management (ALM) landscape on its head by creating tools that enable the inmates to start running the software asylum. Just as the world changed when social networking tools made it trivial for us to externalize our relationships and activity streams, a new collection of open source ALM tools has made it easy for developers to go far beyond dumping code into SCM. Developers are now externalizing their collaboration practices and workflows into a loosely coupled social code graph connected by tasks and relationships.
ALM is transforming before us. A new breed of tool-supported open source practices is reshaping the ALM landscape and making software delivery the most transparent and connected knowledge work process. During this keynote, Mik will explore this transformation, show how it will impact software development in the next decade, and illustrate how today's developers are helping to shape the digital workplace of tomorrow.
