Being agile has become a vital element in the product development life cycle. Here, developers on a project work in collaboration with the client to deliver a minimum viable product. If the client is happy in the way that the product is being developed, then development can continue. This is different to the Waterfall model as if there were any changes that needed to be made, the entire system would have to be rebuilt from the ground up.
Aiming to answer the question of why companies fail to be agile, Sysco LABS will be hosting the second Engineering Nexus meetup. The event will be held on the 4th of July 2018 at the Sysco LABS Engineering Centre.
To give a bit of a background on what it is, the Engineering Nexus is an initiative that is designed to improve the tech industry in Sri Lanka. This would be done by bringing together leading experts from a number of disciplines to share their insights with regard to current prevailing issues.
The first meetup covered the issue of Engineering Productivity from the perspectives of Quality Engineering, DevOps and Architecture. The second Engineering Nexus would delve deeper into why companies struggle to become agile despite adopting agile practices from an architectural, process and delivery standpoint.
Kicking off the Engineering Nexus will be Rohan Perera, Director Engineering at WSO2. His session will be followed by Subuki Shihabdeen, Head of Architecture at Pearson. Following that would be a session by Rajeev Jayawardena, Director Delivery at Sysco LABS. Further, the event will feature speeches and a panel discussion as well.
