Arber Pllana – Growing a Company using XP
Title: Growing with XP.
Unruly has been applying eXtreme Programming (XP) from the start and is now the leading global platform for social video marketing. We now have 12 offices and employ over 150 people globally. XP is still at the core of how we develop our software products and as our company and customer base has grown, we’ve had to figure out how to shape user stories and form strategic roadmaps with stakeholders spread across Asia, Europe, and USA. Our Product Development team continues to develop new product offerings with rich user-experience while remaining as Lean as possible. Come to this session to hear an honest account of how XP practices hold up after years of tinkering and where we’ve had to make adjustments to adapt to scale.
