A short note to say that I'm running an "In the brain" session in London at Skills Matter on the 27th January. This session is going to be very discussion driven, where we'll try to figure out what to do if you need to get your software project back on track.
Software project SOS
If you believe what you read everywhere, all software teams are writing their applications using the latest technology with a comprehensive set of automated tests on their highly productive agile projects. Unfortunately the reality for some of us is far from this, with our projects suffering from a range of problems. In this session, we'll be looking at one or more software projects that are having issues and explore how to resolve them in an effective yet pragmatic way. Please get in touch by e-mailing [email protected] if you want to see your own (anonymised) project featured in this session. This is your opportunity to get some free consultancy or to get a glimpse of how other software teams approach their projects.
The fun starts at 6:30pm and you can find more information on the Skills Matter website.
