    TITLE: Survive The Waterfall

    Scrum and XP have found a strong following in the development community. But most non-development groups (such as Web Administrators, Production Support, Security, Testing, and Users/Stake Holders) inside the enterprise are not only far from agile, they are not trying to be more agile. In this session, I use real experiences from large enterprise development projects to teach you how to effectively work with non-agile teams. Instead of trying to "convert" them, I discuss strategies to adapt to their needs while remaining agile in the development realm.


    An international speaker, Microsoft MVP, ASPInsider, MCSD, CSM, and CSP, and a passionate member of the developer community, Phil Japikse has been working with .NET since the first betas, developing software for over 30 years, and heavily involved in the agile community since 2005. Phil is co-author of best selling C# and the .NET 4.6 Framework, the Lead Director for the Cincinnati .NET User’s Group and the Cincinnati Software Architect Group, co-hosts the Hallway Conversations podcast, founded the Cincinnati Day of Agile, and volunteers for the National Ski Patrol.

    During the day, Phil works as a Principal Consultant and the Agile Practice Director with Strategic Data Systems. Phil enjoys to learn new tech and is always striving to improve his craft. You can follow Phil on twitter and read his blog at
