Why Are We Doing This?


Give Back

We've all heard the saying that "it takes a village to raise a child". When you turn that into an analogy about software, our products/projects are the children, and the whole world is the village. The info we'll share in our sessions are our attempt to throw our ideas, theories, mistakes, and whatever else we can think of back into the village. We hope it helps, even if it is just a little bit…

Content Marketing

You probably weren’t expecting that honest of an answer, were you? We are doing some really great stuff here at The Dude, and we need amazing engineers to help us do that. Hopefully some smart folks out there are searching for a new way to build their widgets and find our learnings helpful. After sitting in on a couple more sessions, they realize that we may be a great place for them to come work. Voila. Content marketing FTW!

Scaling Agile, The Dude Way

Scaling agile is the new hotness. In fact, some would say it is so hot that it has already jumped the shark. Dude Solutions combined multiple agile approaches into a successful, unique recipe for scaling agile. Our speakers walk you through the iterations the Dude took along this journey. Learn how we applied portions of Lean, Scrum, Spotify, SaFE, and others into what we refer to as "The Agile Donut". Yes, we are serious. We really do call it "The Agile Donut". This recipe enabled Dude Solutions to grow from 5 to 30+ engineers and ship 5 products in less than 12 months. Applied appropriately, we believe "The Agile Donut" can help you achieve similar results.

Even more challenging is building a continuous integration and delivery platform that can be flexible and adaptive to your agile software teams. Take a sneak peek into how Dude Solutions revamped and replaced their entire continuous integration and delivery process with a brand new environment and toolset in just under 3 months!
