Agile Amped Interview

Last week I had a great time speaking and networking at the 1st every Agile Alliance Tech conference (#AATC2016), which was held at the newly renovated Marriott Crabtree.

The conference was a great success (IMHO), with some very interesting talks about TDD (Test Driven Development), Pair Programming, and Mob Programming (new to me!) among others. And of course my talk on Agile Data Engineering. You can catch up on all the action by reading the Tweet stream on #AATC2016.

While there I had the honor of being interviewed about my thoughts related to agile, data warehousing, and data vault. (And of course I mentioned Snowflake too!). The interview was hosted by SolutionsIQ and is now included in their online library of video podcasts about agile topics, called Agile Amped (a FREE resource).

Here is the interview:


Here is a direct link to the interview on the SolutionsIQ site.

Thanks to SolutionsIQ and Neville Poole for doing the interview and to Agile Alliance for inviting me to speak.

Agile On!

P.S. Keep your eyes open for #AATC2017 as I am pretty sure we will do this again next year!

P.P.S. Before the conference I gave another interview where I talked about why we need Agile Data Engineering.
