A few weeks back I had the pleasure of attending and speaking at the Southern Fried Agile event in Charlotte, North Carolina.
It was quite an event with over 700 people in attendance. This is a primarily local event drawing people mostly from the Charlotte area. To say agile is big in that town is an understatement. There were some very large, name brand, companies present. If you are interested in learning more about taking an agile approach to development, I can highly recommend this event which draws excellent speakers (and vendors) from all over. (And the traditional southern fried lunch was pretty darn good too!)
My talk was on applying agile methods to data warehousing projects. I had a great audience of about 50 who wanted to learn how they might approach their DW projects differently.
In addition to giving my talk I got the opportunity to participate in my 2nd Agile Amped interview. This time my interviewer was Leslie from SolutionsIQ. We talked a lot about the rise of agile in the data warehousing space and how new technology solutions like Snowflake’s Cloud-Native Elastic Data Warehouse are helping organizations achieve a more agile deployment cycle.
Here is the entire interview for your viewing pleasure:
