Release management conference sessions

11:00am–11:40am Friday, 07/29/2011
Review worst practices for releasing software: how to destroy scope in a single meeting; "death sprints" (more agile than death marches); how to avoid testing; how to make your software impossible to configure; and finally, when pushing out a webapp release, how to make your ops team hate you. This tongue in cheek session will review things learned painfully and late at night.
11:00am–11:40am Friday, 07/29/2011
Tropo's platform for voice, SMS, and IM is a hosted cloud service, and we've opened the source of the core platform. Hear the lessons learned from running a cloud service and a parallel open source project. We did a lot wrong, and we got many things right. We'll discuss what we've learned about product management, release management, marketing, and third party licensing.
