Times of pandemic are challenging for those of us who want to thrive and not only survive at work. How to foster collaboration in the team, build trust and a creative working environment if everything is remote? How to become fulfilled at work? In my talk I would like to share with you how agile and devops can help us answer the questions above. We will also discuss the future of an agile movement especially in the context of the post-pandemic world.

Obviously the software creation process is a multi-facet affair. When the board sets a new direction for the company, commercial stakeholders need to come up with new ideas, POs build a product that fits the ideas, architects design, engineers implement. Congratulations all around! We have a new system! Too bad that it’s exactly the same as our old one… Let’s dive into why even when everyone at every stage of a project seems to want to build “the new”, we end up with same ol’ same ol’.
