Event Description:A decade ago, what is commonplace today – the use of Agile in outsourced development – was controversial and rare. Peter Vaihansky will share anecdotes, horror stories and insights from the trenches – in other words, the good, the bad and the ugly of his company’s 12 years’ journey with offshore and distributed Agile development. Come learn about how one strategically placed book can change the course of your company’s entire history; whether Extreme Programming can cause x-ray vision; how when all else fails, demoting your CEO and EVP can save the day; why two Russian engineers went looking for Phillips screwdrivers in the middle of a customer’s office; and more.
