About the Topic:
Lean software development optimizes flow through your development process, letting you achieve increased levels of output not possible with traditional processes.
This talk will teach you about adopting lean as a development process and, in addition, you will learn how you can integrate lean principles into your existing process. We'll be covering lean at a basic level, while mixing in some complementary topics such as the Theory of Constraints, achieving delivery flow, how to optimize your work queues and more.
