Georgy Bolyuba

 

Georgy Bolyuba is a software developer who writes his introductions in the first person. It is easy to say you love IT, many people do so. Hi, my name is Georgy Bolyuba and I will admit that I do care deeply about IT, but it has been only 12 years since we got together. We have the whole life ahead of us and only time will tell if this is true love.
 
At this point the most interesting aspect of IT for me is people. What makes particular set of people gel as a team? What can make team productive? What can I do for my teams to make this happen?

Let’s see what stuck

In the case study “Let’s see what stuck” I will talk about my experience building agile teams in Barclays for last year and a half. I will talk about the things we tried, how we changed our processes over time and why, and what we are doing now. Think of it a an extremely short sprint review meeting combined with sprint retrospective for a very, very long sprint. Will this work? No idea. But as I have learned at my current gig, sometimes you just have to throw ideas at the wall and see what sticks.  Among other things I will talk about:
 
-          2 people team trying to be agile (harder than you think!)
-          From continuous Kanban to Scrum and back
-          Conjecture: All PMs love agile, not all of them know they do
-          Couple of words on agile in virtual aka remote teams
