The first part of the presentation will discuss the Value of Agile and how we can predict dates and manage a budget using Scrum and Kanban.  The following points will be covered:

  • Why – why we should even bother with using Agile.
  • Fundamentals – basic building blocks of an Agile approach.
  • Scrum Overview – basics of Scrum.
  • Kanban Overview – basics of Kanban.
  • Estimation – in order to predict dates, we need a lightweight way to estimate features.
  • Budget and Schedule – basics of a budget and a delivery schedule.
  • Progress and Scope Creep – we need to understand our progress and the effects new and changed features will have on budget and schedule.


The second part of the evening will walk through an end-to-end DevOps Pipeline using a very simple MVC application to see the following:

• Make a change to the application using Visual Studio.
• Commit the change to a Sprint branch in Git.
• See an Continuous Integration build run in the sprint branch.
• Release the change to the QA environment.
• Test the change in the QA environment.
• Perform a pull request from the Sprint Branch to the Master Branch.
• Perform a code review.
• See an Continuous Integration build run in the master branch.
• Release the change to the Staging Environment with approvals
• Test the change in the Staging Environment
• Swap the Staging slot with the Production slot with an approval.
• Test the change in production.
