We are thrilled to announce devops expert Andrew Clay Shafer is this year's keynote speaker! In his keynote, Reflections: Agile Doesn’t Work, People Do, Andrew will mix anecdotes and research to shed light on questions such as, Why does an organization using the same methods and tools get drastically different results from another similar organization? Why is software so hard? Is software hard? What does better look like and how would we know?

Keynote topic: Reflections: Agile Doesn’t Work, People Do
Software is eating the world. Or so they say…. Everyone wants software results but not everyone gets them. Digital transformation, continuously devops microservices, a constant parade of buzzwords with the promise to help. Why does an organization using the same methods and tools get drastically different results from another similar organization? Why is software so hard? Is software hard? Are we really getting better at software? What does better look like? How would we know? A mix of anecdotes and research will shed light on these serious questions.
