Applying Agile to Big Data and Machine Learning (Ade Miller)

It might seem like a Big Data or Machine Learning project wouldn't lend itself to an agile software development approach. The "Big" in Big Data implies lots of infrastructure and up front work in order to get things moving before a single piece of useful user functionality can be delivered. In fact the very experimental nature and huge unknowns implicit in almost all of these projects makes an agile approach very well suited.
Ade Miller has spent the last four years working on Big Data and Machine Learning projects, first and CenturyLink Cloud and more recently at Conga. He will be presenting the results of his experiences successfully delivering with agile. In addition to talking about his experiences, what worked and what didn't, he will also be discussing how to adjust your agile approach to take into account the unique constrains of these types of project.

Learning Outcomes:
  • Attendees will have a clear understanding of the constraints that big data and machine learning focused projects place on the agile software development lifecycle. In addition they will understand opportunities presented by taking an agile approach to such projects.
