Can’t We All Just Get Along? Designer & Developer Relationships in an Agile Environment
With traditional software development methodologies, a natural division can occur between designer and developer. Layer in tight timelines and relationships can become contentious at times. The Agile development methodology attempts to break down that barrier and ultimately build a better product. Beginning with a quick overview of Agile, we will use some real-world examples to explore how some of the tenets can help create a shared understanding across the roles, why prioritization matters and how open communication can prevent rework and build efficiencies. Doug Rosenberg, Agile advocate and Business Analyst at Unboxed Technology, will lead this topical and active discussion. At the end of the evening, you will walk away with a better understanding of Agile and some inspiration to break down your own working barriers.
