Patterns, Principles, and Agile ConnectionsPattern Principles, and Agile Connections

Organizers: Rebecca Wirfs-Brock, Linda Rising, Joseph Yoder, and Ward Cunningham
                   (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.)

Abstract:  Many ideas about agile development have roots in the software patterns and design community. Several early patterns authors have also been influential in the development and discovery of Agile practices. Join us as we share stories about the history and co-evolution of patterns and agile. We will discuss how core principles specifically relating to quality underlie both patterns and Agile practices. We’ll touch on what’s happened since the early days. We will look at how patterns and agile are connected today and share some recently published agile-related patterns.

Date: February 26th, 9:00 am PT (California timezone)

Details: This will be a one-hour-panel discussion. 
             Held in conjunction with the Agile 20 Reflect Festival.

Rebecca is an object design pioneer who invented the set of design practices known as Responsibility-Driven Design (RDD) and by accident started the x-Driven Design meme. Along the way, she authored two popular object design books that are still in print. In her work, Rebecca helps teams hone their design and architecture skills, manage and reduce technical debt, refactor their code, and address architecture risks. In addition to coaching and personal design mentoring, she teaches and conducts workshops on Responsibility-Driven Design, design heuristics, design thinking, decision-making, and being agile about system qualities. In her spare time she jogs (even in the rain). Rebecca is currently program director of the Agile Alliance’s Experience Report Initiative and co-chair of the experience report tracks for both the XP 2021 and Agile 2021 conferences. She also serves on The Hillside Group board. Recently she has written essays on heuristics and patterns, as well as patterns about magic backlogs, sustainable architecture, and agile QA.

Pattern Mining Workshop Pattern Mining Workshop

Organizers: Kyle Brown, MaryLynn Manns, and Joseph Yoder
                   (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.)

Abstract:  Pattern mining techniques include ways to extract valuable seeds of patterns from proven experiences. In this workshop, you’ll learn about Patterns and learn techniques for identifying patterns and writing patterns and pattern languages.  Learn from experts in the field how to discover patterns, identify how patterns relate to each other in a pattern language or pattern catalog, and participate in interactive exercises that will show you how to write your own patterns and pattern languages.

The workshop consists of a mix of discussion, group pattern writing, pattern mining practice - not necessarily in that order. Part of this will include a discussion on the relationship between patterns, and the priority of the patterns. This can include looking at pattern maps and sequences of using the patterns. The only requirements are an open mind, ready to absorb the patterns experience, and ideas for patterns. If you wish, you can bring any pattern ideas you may want to brainstorm, such as Organizational, Teams, Software, Agile, Change, etc.Agile 20 Reflect

Date: February 25,26 2021; 3:00-5:00 pm Chicago timezone.
         More details forthcoming.

Details: This will be a two-day mini-workshop (2 hours per day, online). 
             No technical expertise or previous patterns expertise required.
             The workshop will be held in conjunction with the Agile 20 Reflect Festival.

Kyle Brown is an IBM Distinguished Engineer and the CTO of Cloud Architecture for IBM Cloud Architecture and Solution Engineering. He is a veteran of the software industry with well over 25 years of experience, and a "fixture" at PLoP, being past PLoP chairs (2002/2018), Program Committee member and frequent patterns workshop contributor. He's the author or co-author of well over one hundred articles and seven books on Software Engineering, including "The Design Patterns Smalltalk Companion", "Enterprise Integration Patterns" and most recently "Modern Web Development with IBM WebSphere".   Kyle Brown
MaryLynn Manns, PhD is the co-author of two books, Fearless Change: Patterns for Introducing New Ideas, 2005 (also published in Japanese and Chinese) and More Fearless Change: Strategies for Making Your Ideas Happen, 2015, and a Professor Emerita at the University of North Carolina in Asheville. She has given numerous presentations on change leadership at events throughout the world and in many organizations that include Microsoft, Procter & Gamble, Avon, and Amazon.    Mary Lynn Manns
Joseph (Joe) Yoder (agilist, computer scientist, speaker, and pattern author) is the founder and principal of The Refactory (www.refactory.com), a company focused on software architecture, design, implementation, consulting, and mentoring on all facets of software development. Joe is also the president of The Hillside Group, a non-profit dedicated to improving the quality of life of everyone who uses, builds, and encounters software systems. Joe has presented many tutorials and talks, arranged workshops, given keynotes, and helped organize leading international agile and technical conferences. He is best known as an author of the Big Ball of Mud pattern, which illuminates many fallacies in software architecture. Joe teaches and mentors developers on Agile and lean practices, architecture, building flexible systems, clean design, patterns, refactoring, and testing. Recently Joe has been working with organizations and thought leaders on the best practices for including quality aspects throughout the complete software life-cycle. Joe thinks software is still too hard to change and wants to do something about this. He believes using good practices (patterns), putting the ability to change software into the hands of the people with the knowledge to change it, and bringing the business side closer to the development process helps solve this problem.
