What began as a slur now has a growing following; but is ‘wagile’ – a mix of agile and waterfall software delivery methods – really gaining traction as a credible software delivery approach? Agile delivery is hailed as the best model for most projects – but does its success mean it’s being used too broadly? And how does an ill-suited software delivery approach affect build?

Join Helastel’s panel – Director of Operations James Tipler, Scrum Master Sukhwinder Talwar, Solution Architect Lewis Barnes, and Head of Development Lee Griffin – at Engine Shed for a lively discussion on modern software delivery models.

Discussion points:

  • Definition of the waterfall + agile ‘wagile’ working methodology
  • What are the key sticking points around effective agile employment?
  • Is agile over-hyped?
  • Good wagile and bad wagile
  • Is there a place for a new approach to software delivery?
  • How do other methodologies stack up? Pros and cons of different approaches:
  • – Waterfall vs V model for linear
  • – Scrum vs kanban for agile

A 30-minute panel discussion will be followed by a Q&A session, and refreshments.
