We’re pleased that SIG Commit is back with its third edition!
What can you expect? The Sigrid product strategy and practical examples of how Sigrid is used to assure software build quality in three interactive, parallel workshops. Choose the workshop with the best fit for your business needs and join the conversation!
On the agenda:
// Sigrid Product Strategy
As the world we live and work in becomes ever-more reliant on software, the Sigrid software assurance platform continues to evolve to support digital-first business strategies. Pepijn van de Kamp, Head of Innovation, will share our vision for Sigrid as an always-on platform for software build quality assurance, and give you a sneak peak at what’s coming next on the roadmap.
// 30-min Interactive Workshops
1. How to manage build quality & security in large portfolios – with Robert Stuursma, Product Owner
Team autonomy is a good thing. But having autonomous teams also makes it harder to achieve shared goals. There is a balance between having individual freedom as a team, without resorting to rigid top-down governance.
In this workshop, we’ll show you how to define organization-wide goals for build quality and security with Sigrid, while giving development teams the insight to achieve those goals.
2. Effective open source management for large software landscapes – with Marco Di Biase, Technical Consultant
Every IT organization heavily depends on open source software, but this also introduces new challenges. Can every team select their own open source libraries, or do you need central guidelines? What do you do when security vulnerabilities are discovered? How do you make sure every team has a process for periodically updating libraries?
We’ll discuss with you how Sigrid helps address these key IT-portfolio challenges of deploying open source.
3. How to reduce technical debt with Refactoring Candidates – with Michael Olivari, Software Development Consultant
To some extent, technical debt in software projects is inevitable. The challenge is to strike a balance between the need of technical debt reduction, maintaining development velocity, and keeping your functional roadmap on track in Sigrid. You don’t want to delay necessary functional changes, but you also don’t want to let technical debt rise to a level where all progress slows to a crawl.
Let’s find out together how to strike a balance between these two needs in a pragmatic way.
