ALM, Agile ALM, DevOps, Continuous Delivery - strangers, cousins, twins from different mothers? (Presented by IBM)

Session Type: 
Sponsored Session
Speakers

It seems that the faster our markets move, the faster we invent buzz words. The more complex the market becomes, the more complex our buzzwords. Let's play buzzword bingo while discussing ALM, Agile ALM, DevOps and Continuous Delivery. Are they practices? Attempts at defining the software lifecycle? Market categories? Tools? Or all of the above? We'll have something to give to the first person who fills out their buzzword bingo card.

Need for Speed – Win the SDLC race and stay alive, come learn about agile++

Session Type: 
Standard [35 minutes]
Speakers

In today’s reality we cannot afford any fat or unnecessary delays in our time to market neither afford any compromise on quality. Agile is no longer luxury but a necessity. However, agile has to evolve. It has been more than 10 years since the agile manifesto published. Enough time to revisit some of the practices, refine, enhance, and identify gaps.

Making Agile ALM Work in Regulated Industries

Session Type: 
Standard [35 minutes]
Speakers

Agile practices may seem at odds with GRC (governance, risk and compliance). Skeptics understandably are worried about the prospect of multiple small teams working autonomously, and a resulting lack of accountability and control.
By following the right concepts, you can make Agile work effectively also in highly regulated industries such as Finance, Telecommunications, Pharmaceuticals and Government.

Building Mylyn 4.0

Session Type: 
Standard [35 minutes]
Speakers

By placing developers at the center of the ALM equation, Mylyn has reshaped both the IDE and the Agile tools we use today. With over 80 publicly available Mylyn extensions exist available, the Mylyn frameworks and APIs are forming not only developer tooling, but also the foundations of the first open source ALM middleware layer. Come to this talk to learn what’s new in Mylyn 3.9 in terms of developer tools and integrations, and learn how you can reuse the Mylyn frameworks within Eclipse, Visual Studio, and even NetBeans.

Panel: Agile and ALM – What does Agile mean to ALM ?

Session Type: 
Standard [35 minutes]
Speakers

For many in the Agile community software delivery tools are considered to be anti-Agile. Tools are thought of as getting in the way of successful software projects and reduce Agility. But tools are increasingly important for Agile success. ALM, the application of business management to the practice of software delivery is considered by many as a tools oriented approach to software delivery. So, how can you manage these two very different ideas – Agility and ALM.

Building a VM based Custom Application in an Agile CI Environment in a Timely Manner

Session Type: 
Standard [35 minutes]
Speakers

When virtualization and agility intersect, there are 2 competing concerns. Agility best practices include continuous integration with a rapid build feedback loop. With virtualization - self contained, manageable and reproducible VMs are often large in size. This can make rapid creation, when application source code changes, a time-consuming task that can interfere with the need for a rapid build feedback loop.

Stop throwing your doc away: Agile Documentation with Mylyn Intent

Session Type: 
Standard [35 minutes]
Speakers

Documentation sucks because most of the time it's outdated: it never reflects the recent changes you made on your software, and sooner or later no one will trust (and hence read) it anymore. In result, you often have to throw it away and rewrite a new documentation almost from scratch.

By providing tooling to efficiently update documentation when a change occurs (in your models, your code...), Mylyn Intent gives to your documents the abillity to react to changes, turning them into true Agile documents.

Documentation Driven Testing

Session Type: 
Standard [35 minutes]
Speakers

Although a lot of tools have been created to improve your code quality (checkstyle, code coverage, sonar metrics...), being able to ensure that your software has a good functional quality (i.e. fulfills the functional requirements) is still very hard, because of a clear lack of tooling.

The Eclipse Modeling Project, associated with tools like Mylyn Intent, leads us to the establishment of testing techniques which could be described as Documentation-Driven Testing.

High Quality Agile - Incorporating Quality into Your Agile Process and Organization Means Working Faster and Smarter

Session Type: 
Standard [35 minutes]
Speakers

Your executive management is pressuring you to adopt Agile. You've heard that Agile does get your software built faster with fewer resources, but you've also heard that there is no way to maintain a high standard for quality assurance when you're doing continuous releases. Agile development has been widely adopted in order to get more features to market in a reduced time, so what does that mean for quality assurance in an Agile environment? You don't have to trade quality for speed anymore - here are some strategies for having your cake and eating it too:
