Introducing the Agile2020 Experience Reports

Agile Alliance

We were already busy writing and reviewing experience reports when the Agile2020 conference was cancelled in early June. Towards the end of March, we’d selected twenty experience reports (out of 88 submissions). Each report author was then paired with a shepherd who had advocated for their report.

Focus on Steps, not Leaps

Scrum.org

We often try to make massive change once we realize something isn't right and this doesn't normally go so well. When it comes to making progress everyone wants to LEAP; take BIGGER steps. The bigger the improvement, the happier we are. But it doesn't work like that in reality.

Why Distributed Tracing is Essential for Performance and Reliability

Speaker: Daniel "spoons" Spoonhower, CTO and Co-Founder at Lightstep

Many engineering organizations have now adopted microservices or other loosely coupled architectures, often alongside DevOps practices. Together these have enabled individual service teams to become more independent and, as a result, have boosted developer velocity. However, this increased velocity often comes at the cost of overall application performance or reliability. Worse, teams often don’t understand what’s affecting performance or reliability – or even who to ask to learn more. Distributed tracing was developed at organizations like Google and Twitter to address these problems and has also come a long way in the decade since then. By the end of this presentation, you’ll understand why distributed tracing is necessary and how it can bring performance and reliability back under control.
