The Algorithms and Architecture of Agile vs. Traditional Software Development
When considering agile development, there are three approaches you can use: believe the hype and hope for the best, look for documented ROI studies, or find people that you trust at a company with similar circumstances that have done it successfully and learn from them. But there is another way. This session will examine traditional and agile development from an architectural and algorithmic perspective.

  • Understand the differences and similarities of agile and traditional development
  • See exactly how and why each approach works
  • Learn more about the merits of agile to share with those that haven't yet discovered its benefits
