Agile, Scrum and DevOps – The workshop

The workshop “Agile, Scrum and DevOps – Let’s Play with LEGO” is part of  TugaIT 2017 conference schedule and will happen at May 18th. TugaIT 2017 is one the greatest Portuguese IT conference and will happen between May 18th and 20th – 3 days with sessions and workshops to provide the highest possible quality training and knowledge to the community, on a variety of topics.

My friend and agile coach Nuno Rafael Gomes (@nrgomes) challenged me to take his original workshop about Lean, Agile and LEGO Serious Play (more info here) and introduce the DevOps perspective to the workshop. From our numerous discussions about Scrum and Agile he knew that I love to deconstruct Scrum, so it was easy to me to accept the challenge.

Develop software is not enough anymore, you need to deliver it. This is the trademark to my contribution to this workshop where my purpose is to introduce the DevOps values, practices and challenges. In other words, my mission is to demonstrate how DevOps can improve the way you deliver software. I like to call it the “Beyond Scrum” approach, where DevOps arises as the answer to the challenges that Scrum brought to the software development and was not able to solve.

The best part of the workshop is that we will do this playing a game using LEGO. We can garante lot of learning and fun.

Our objectives are:

  • Learn through practice what the agile values really mean
  • Deeply understand the roles, events and artifacts of Scrum
  • Understand the power of Systems Thinking, Feedback Amplification and Continuous Learning
  • Establish the relationship between Scrum and DevOps
  • Understand the 3 ways of DevOps

Topics that we will cover:

  • All 4 agile values
  • All Scrum values, roles, events and artifacts
  • The DevOps definition
  • The 3 ways of DevOps
  • Value Stream Mapping
  • Theory of Constrains
  • Continuous Improvement (kaizen)

Required materials:

  • You just need to bring fun, good mood, and desire to learn!

This workshop is intended to everyone, independently of the knowledge level about Agile, Scrum and DevOps. If you don’t know what is Scrum,, or you never heard about DevOps or Agile, or you already know what’s each one of the topics, join us. We garante that everyone will learn something new!
