In the last decade or so we've seen a number of new ideas added to the mix to help us effectively design our software. Patterns help us capture the solutions and rationale for using them. Refactoring allows us to alter the design of a system after the code is written. Agile methods, in particular Extreme Programming, give us a highly iterative and evolutionary approach which is particularly well suited to changing requirements and environments. Martin Fowler has been a leading voice in these techniques and will give a suite of short talks featuring various aspects about his recent thinking about how these and other developments affect our software development.
Presented by: Martin Fowler, Chief Scientist, ThoughtWorks
Ken Collier will help explore key questions around big data and provide a realistic look at what constitutes big data. In this talk we'll examine why it matters, when big data techniques make sense and when to stick with conventional ones. We will discuss how to integrate big data with structured relational data. And, most importantly we will evaluate techniques for focusing on rapid-cycle delivery of business value, and incrementally evolving toward the best analytics solutions.
Presented by: Ken Collier, PhD, author of Agile Analytics and Agile Analytics Practice Lead, ThoughtWorks
