At Tech Ed 2012, the biggest change over the previous years had to do with ALM and agile development – it seemed like one out of every four classes dealt with Agile in one way or another. What is all the fuss about – and how can our team use the best tools to keep developers and BA’s humming and business owners happy?

In this talk Dave will explore his team's two-year long experience with Agile development at Columbia Sportswear Company, including experiences with TFS and other tools.

Along the way we’ll cover:

• The Software Development Hierarchy of Needs (from a great post by Scott Hanselman)

• Our experiences with MVC, TDD, and Azure

• Why the Spanish Armada didn’t work and Apollo 13 did – the Cone of Death

• The dirty little secret behind scrum – hint, it’s not a magic bullet

• Jealousy as a proactive emotion

• Save the poker for Vegas

• Managing priorities across software development teams in one list

Speaker: Dave Harrison is the Development Manager and .Net Lead Developer at Columbia Sportswear. He has 7 years of Windows and Internet/Web applications development experience. Dave is a certified Scrum Master and agile enthusiast (www.rogueagile.com)
