WHAT:

Developer Popularism


Software developers, the people responsible for world-changing software, are increasingly becoming empowered, making decisions about what tools they use, how they work and even what devices they work on. Software is now more important to basic business operations than ever, but software management may be even more critical. ALM (Application Lifecycle Management) is the discipline that describes the application of business management to the practice of software development from idea to delivery. Empowered developers, or developer popularism, enforces a fundamental change to ALM. The complexity of the change from a single process, single tool based model to something more intricate can be daunting. Kersten and West will describe why developer popularism is happening, what that means to developers and how developers need to engage with management and other constituents in the software value chain to ensure that ALM continues to provide value. Attendees will obtain a full understanding of what it takes to achieve management oversight with developer freedom.
