Navigating Conflict on Agile Teams: Why "Resolving" Conflict Won't Work | Lyssa Adkins | STARWEST

Content Warning: Thank you Janice for bringing to my attention my commentary on Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD) in this keynote. I deeply regret making light of ADD and even using it as the butt of a joke to segue to my next point. I realize this creates a disconnection between me and those for whom ADD is a daily reality, which is not my intention. For this I am sorry. - Lyssa Adkins, October 2021- On great agile teams, conflict is constant and welcomed by all as a catapult to higher performance. It is about human beings working together, day after day, in the maelstrom of constant collaboration and change. http://starwest.techwell.com On many agile development teams, conflict lurks under the surface and can erupt as a volcano of destruction and suffering. On many agile teams, conflict is viewed mostly as a distraction that keeps the team from getting the job done. However, on great agile teams, conflict is constant and welcomed by all as a catapult to higher performance. In all these situations, conflict is not a mechanistic system one can simply take apart, fix, and put back together. It is not about mechanisms; it is about human beings working together, day after day, in the maelstrom of constant collaboration and change. In this turbulence, how can teams chart a course through conflict and turn it into a force for greatness? Lyssa Adkins reveals a conflict model that helps you do just that, walking you through five levels of conflict from "Problem to Solve" to "World War" with each step finely tuned to view conflict in a deeply human and humane way. After all, agile is about people and interactions and nowhere is this more apparent than in the midst of conflict. Watch this video to learn a framework you can use right away to help your teams navigate conflict and move toward high performance.

Learning Test-Driven Development • Saleem Siddiqui & Dave Farley • GOTO 2022

This interview was recorded for the GOTO Book Club. #GOTOcon #GOTObookclub http://gotopia.tech/bookclub Read the full transcription of the interview here: https://gotopia.tech/bookclub/episodes/learning-test-driven-development Saleem Siddiqui - Author of "Learning Test-Driven Development" & Principal Architect at SPR Dave Farley - Author of "Modern Software Engineering", Continuous Delivery & DevOps Pioneer Find plenty more from Dave on his Continuous Delivery YouTube channel: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCCfqyGl3nq_V0bo64CjZh8g DESCRIPTION You may think test-driven development wouldn't work in your preferred programming language, or that it would disrupt your code writing — this Book Club episode proves otherwise. Saleem Siddiqui, author of “Learning Test-Driven Development,” and Dave Farley, author of "Modern Software Engineering," review the multiple ways test-driven development can yield more effective results and produce higher quality code. The interview is based on Saleem's book "Learning Test-Driven Development": https://amzn.to/35OMb3n Check out Saleem on O'Reilly's learning platform: https://learning.oreilly.com/get-learning/?code=LTDD21 TIMECODES 00:00 Intro 01:30 Why write the book in 3 languages (Go, JS & Python)? 11:52 Why is TDD difficult to adopt but easy to abandon? 26:38 Red-green refactoring (RGR): why it matters 32:47 Refactoring in TDD 35:43 Continuous integration 38:00 When to use TDD 48:03 Main takeaways from the book 53:48 Outro RECOMMENDED BOOKS Saleem Siddiqui • Learning Test-Driven Development • https://amzn.to/35OMb3n Saleem Siddiqui, Michael Landy & Jeff Swisher • Jbuilder Developer's Guide • https://amzn.to/3uifzbL David Farley • Modern Software Engineering • https://amzn.to/3GI468M Dave Farley & Jez Humble • Continuous Delivery • https://amzn.to/3ocIHwd Roy Osherove • The Art of Unit Testing • https://bit.ly/3obiKNB Kent Beck • Test Driven Development • https://amzn.to/36kchvd Nicole Forsgren, Jez Humble & Gene Kim • Accelerate • https://amzn.to/367RI5o https://twitter.com/GOTOcon https://www.linkedin.com/company/goto- https://www.facebook.com/GOTOConferences #TDD #SoftwareEngineering #SaleemSiddiqui #DaveFarley #Programming #Testing #TestDrivenDevelopment #UnclutteredCode #Coding #SoftwareArchitecture #RGR #Refactor #Polyglot #Golang #JavaScript #Python #UnitTesting #ContinuousDelivery #ContinuousDeployment #Accelerate #TDDTutorial #TestingTutorial SUPPORTER Harness is the only end-to-end platform for complete software delivery.
