I am pleased to announce that I will be speaking at this years DDDNorth community conference about Lean Software Development. This is my first DDD event so I am looking forward to it. The conference is a free one day event that is being held at Leeds University on Saturday 1st October. Here is my talk description.
Lean software development (LSD) is a translation of lean manufacturing and lean IT principles and practices to the software development domain. Adapted from the Toyota Production System, a pro-lean subculture is emerging from within the Agile community
In this talk we will look at Lean Software Development and how it is a benefit to modern development.
We will start off quickly looking at Waterfall and Agile, and then look at the history of Lean and its origins at Ford and Toyota. From there we will show how leans applies to software with the following lean principles:
Build Quality In
Optimize the Whole
We will then answer the question Agile or Lean and then look at different software practices that will help support your use of lean including Kanban.
The talk would be aimed at software developers who are keen to apply lean to their software projects.
