Flow. The officially worst software development approach in history

Methodology & Culture

Ever since we started writing code in the fifties of the previous century, managers and project managers have tried to discipline and structure the way we work. However, no matter how many consultants and coaches are hired to implement increasingly complex process frameworks and methodologies, developers and testers always come up with new simplistic approaches. During this talk, Kim and Sander will introduce Flow: the official worst software development methodology in the history ever, taking inspiration from the worst principles and practices from methodologies such as waterfall, RUP, Scrum, Kanban, Lean, BDD, LeSS, SAFe, Spotify and of course everything continuous and everything as-a-service. Don't let project failure take you by surprise, be certain! And ... attendees are eligible for the Certified Flow Resource (CFR) certificate!
