Agile Developments part 2

Monday, November 24, 2014



15 St Mary’s Street, Truro (edit map)

The second Agile meetup. Jim Barritt is a senior consultant for global software consultancy giant, Thoughtworks. We are lucky enough that he has agreed to come, visit and give a talk.

  • Jim was the person who suggested Agile as a programme for Oxford Innovation several years ago, after which many companies throughout Cornwall then began to adopt it.

    Jim will be speaking on the subject “If I ruled the world”

    After serving several years in the industry Jim will describe what he would do if he was given carte blanche to set up a delivery project from scratch with ultimate authority and budget. He’ll be covering a range of learnings from his work on massive programmes through to the beginnings of much smaller scale projects and how “small is still relevant”. As well as this he’ll touch on the underlying technical practices and architecture he is using at Thoughtworks as well as some of the techniques and tools he’s seeing in other areas of the industry.
