New technology constantly gives us new opportunities for innovation in the apps we build. But our modern methodologies and processes for development are detail oriented to deal with crushing complexity, and do not emphasize big picture thinking. In this session, Billy Hollis will cover the techniques he and his team have used for over twenty years to foster innovation in app development. He’ll cover several examples and trace how the innovation started and was refined, including some that resulted in billion dollar returns. If you are looking for ways to raise your own profile in the profession of software development, this session is an option to add a valuable new skill to your talent stack.

You will learn:

  • How innovation is underappreciated due to modern development complexities
  • See how processes and methodologies, including widely used agile variants, hamper innovation
  • Discover techniques to make your team innovation focused, allowing them to build more valuable applications
