**************

Howie Ross, Development Director at O3 World (located in Philly), will be giving a talk on "Agile is Dead, Long live Agile, A UX Oriented Approach to Agile

Abstract:15 years ago a group of developers got together and published the Agile Manifesto because they had uncovered better ways of developing software. Since then, some things have stayed the same, such as the importance of communication and collaboration, but a lot has also changed. Today, it’s no longer enough to build software that just satisfies acceptance criteria; we need engage and delight users. In order to do that, we need a process that supports the design of intuitive user interfaces and exceptional user experiences.

In this talk, we’ll examine what parts of Agile and Agile methodologies like Scrum are alive and well and which have been iterated on and improved over time. We’ll talk about about how we use agile at O3 World to design and build revenue generating products and take a look at our process, tools and philosophy.

While Agile with a capital A may not be as relevant as it once was, the agile mindset is stronger than ever. And, when the agile is combined with Design Thinking, Lean concepts and devOps and then truly embraced by an organization amazing are things possible.
