Dan has been coaching, coding and consulting for over 20 years, with a focus on applying systems thinking and simple technology to solve complex business problems. He uses techniques from Lean operations, Theory of Constraints and Agile software development to help IT organisations anticipate and respond to the challenges of changing business needs.
Dan is the originator of Behaviour-Driven Development, an agile approach to software development that encourages teams to deliver the software that matters by emphasising the interactions between stakeholders. He also proposed Deliberate Discovery, which challenges assumptions around software planning and estimation. He argues that there are no best practices and that everything we do is subject to opportunity cost.
He is a popular keynote and session speaker at international technology conferences, on topics as diverse as software architecture, behavioural psychology, simplicity, uncertainty and learning. His presentation style has been described as Eddie Izzard meets the Architect from The Matrix.
You plan and deliver in sprints, you have an automated build, you practise TDD religiously and rotate pairs like clockwork. In fact you couldn’t be any more agile. So is this as good as it gets? Some teams deliver in days rather than months, and iterate in hours rather than weeks. These teams don’t just break all the rules, they make up new ones of their own. On this course you will learn unusual and counter-intuitive techniques for software delivery and understand the principles behind them. Using a mixture of discussion, instruction and exploration you will start to think differently about agile development, automation and team dynamics. By exploring several architecture and development strategies you will learn how you and your teams can produce and deploy software faster than they thought possible. You’ll never look at TDD the same way again, not to mention copying-and-pasting code.
