Silicon Valley Code Camp : October 5th and 6th 2013
Matt Hargett is a Lean-Agile implementer who specializes in large C/C++/C#-focused teams and organizations. He has rolled out Agile engineering and Lean business practices at some of the largest companies in Silicon Valley. Matt co-wrote Pragmatic Unit Testing in C# 2nd edition with the Pragmatic Programmers and contributes heavily to open source projects. In his spare time, he write songs under the name "the making of the making of", which can be found on most digital music outlets.
Lean-Agile practices like Test Driven Development are finally becoming more common in products and companies built around C and C++. But how do you make the business case for adoption in the first place? And once your team gets started with Unit Testing and other Agile practices, how do you make these good habits stick, and how do you scale the practices from one team to a larger organization? Equally important: how do you maintain overall feature velocity and product performance? Matt will speak to all of these questions on a deeply technical level based on his 10+ years of in-the-trenches work deploying Agile practices to C, C++, and C# product teams from small, stealth start-ups to large, public companies.
