Event description

Description

Simon Mather, Interim CTO and Head of Engineering, Sky Bet and Yoel Marson, Transformational Thought Leader and former CTO of CPP, are joining us to give their take on Agile Development. They will explore the route companies take towards full adoption and will illustrate several stops on that path and how beliefs, productivity and costs evolve for each one.

The following ideas will be considered:

  • at its initial state Agile meetings are just an overhead

  • true value is gained when the real objectives of Agile are attained as well as Agile governance and adoption by executives

  • early Agile is good for developers as well as how they need to adapt to make it work



Agenda

7.00 Presentation by Simon Mather and Yoel Marson with Q&A session

8.00 Pizza, beer and chat

9.00 Close




More Information About Our Speakers

Simon Mather

I'm not sure if the last 20 years in IT has been my pursuit of a hobby or the pursuit of a career, but I guess we have to call it a career after so long. As CTO and Head of Development for companies such as SkyBet, The Co-op and Learndirect, I'm an advocate of Open Source and Agile cultures in the workplace, they fit well with the philosophy of transparency and collaboration I aspire to follow.

I also have a particular passion for the delivery of online services and the kind of technical design challenges they come with. And when I'm not plugged in I tend to be out rambling with the family in The Peaks, reminding myself how amazing the world is.

Yoel Marson

I'm a hands-on technology leader looking to help transform companies, creating fabulous new user experiences. Obsessed with tech and write both about software engineering and how technology will change society.

I started my career in banking before moving on to a series of exciting startups before making my way up the ranks at Yahoo where I managed engineering for one of their largest products. Since then I've had several CTO and Head of Tech roles, leading with a combination of best practices across development, architecture and infrastructure and my own unique methods and style.
