An Agile Agent-Oriented Method for Designing Large Socio-Technical Service-Ecosystems

The agile development of large sociotechnical systems appears to be now more feasible with the availability of service- oriented cloud computing although this results in a higher complexity level with respect to security and dependability in service ecosystems. Additionally, the communication between humans and software is more complex too. Developing system architectures that comprise proactive agents are a means to tackle that complexity. However, there is a lack of agile sociotechnical design- and development methods for generating agent-based architectures that get deployed on platforms as a service in Clouds. Such methods must be easy to comprehend and enactable in a pragmatic way. To demonstrate a suggested method, the presentation uses a running case based on an emergency healthcare-provision scenario in homes for elderly. This presentation addresses the state-of-the-art gap by questioning how to augment and modify existing agile best practices for enabling the design and development of large sociotechnical ecosystems with means of service-oriented cloud computing. The presenter hopes to receive inspiring input from industry practitioners that is useful for commencing with novel research into relevant and close-to-realite directions.

Teaching young hackersPeeter Marvet

I bet we all started with games, mods and trying to make the environment around us cool/fun/interesting. Now we are going to schools and trying to make everybody learn “programming” – this trend must stop NOW. What are the cool activities that might require IT skills – from solving puzzles to building robots & better paper airplanes? And how to turn these activities into “formats” that can become viral among teachers and students? Peeter has been speaking to teachers after helping to localize some Codecademy courses and would like to bridge the gap.

BIO: Peeter might have been the first in Estonia to talk about agile in mainstream media – back in 2005. Likes blending together code, design & usability, but could be best in selling really expensive stuff to very large clients. With vision. Is often feeling depressed (and unemployed) by the fact, that he has never had a chance to work in real development.

Agile on Mars!


You are an expert in TDD & Pair Programming, hold a Scrum Master certificate and know the Agile Manifesto from heart? Then this talk is probably too basic for you! Everyone else in invited to jump head-first into a journey through space, learning about many core agile methods and concepts on the way, like: Iterations, User Stories, Planning Poker, Test Driven Development, Pair Programming, Collective Code Ownership, Continuous Integration and more! Our journey will end on Mars where we will use SCRUM to conceive, build and continually improve the first Mars Station of mankind! Well, at least sort off..

Robin Gurney: An agile marketer?

“When I was invited to keynote at Agile Saturday VII, I nearly fell off my chair. Surely some mistake.

WTF do I know about agile development? Not a lot to be honest.
But then again I realised that this whole agile thinking thing is not, or should not be, exclusive to development. I have ideas how agile is related to sex, marketing and, of course, neuroscience…”

Is Robin an agile marketer? You decide. Whatever he is, he has been a successful salesman and (internet) marketing entrepreneur for longer than he cares to admit and has “advised” hundreds of companies around the world.
