Agile methodologies promote and advocate for colocated teams, but many if not most companies employ distributed teams. Can distributed teams turn the Agile dials up to 11 and still have whiteboards, sticky notes, pair programming, TDD, and full-participation agile ceremonies, all without regulating some team members to being second-class citizens of the project?
Yes we can, and yes we do! Joe will walk through the processes, practices, and enabling technologies developed at pioneering agile consultancy Pivotal Labs over the past 13 years. Learn how to incorporate a few occasional "remotes", maintain teams split across regions and timezones, and even how to adopt an "everyone's remote" approach to your distributed agile teams.
Part I of this session is an overview and discussion of the team processes, pro-tip, and pitfalls of several distributed agile team structures; Part II will be a deep dive into supporting technologies, remote pair programming, and a unified solution to all time-zone challenges... kind of.

Learning Outcomes:
  • Demonstrate that distributed agile teams can be as successful as colocated agile teams
  • Teach attendees the process skills to efficiently run a distributed agile team
  • Teach attendees the tools and technologies that help enable successful distributed agile teams
  • Attendees share out their own pro-tips and pitfalls so everyone can improve, including the speaker.
