My Agile Journey - By Deepti Suri of FIS

Robert W Baird & Co 777 East Wisconsin Avenue , Milwaukee, WI 53202 (map)

Software development is hard but it has always been hard. Agile methodology, the buzzword of today, is not the panacea that will make things easier. It offers distinct advantages, but it is up to the people using it to harness them. As a software developer that has risen through the ranks and as an academic that firmly believes that software development should be grounded on the solid principles of a repeatable process, I will talk my development journey which has included several development methodologies. I will talk about how hanging on to the principles that have stood the test of time has made the transition across the various development methodologies easier!
