CCMR Presents 'The State We're In!'

Seminar, Council Chamber

Twenty years ago Will Hutton published his seminal work The State We’re In, which brilliantly analysed the condition of Britain, and especially its economy, at the time. It also provided a blueprint for the wholesale modernisation of the county of the country. Written towards the end of the long period of uninterrupted Tor rule, which began with Mrs Thatcher’s government in 1979, it was widely seen as providing the basis for Tony Blair’s ‘New Labour’, although in retrospect it could be argued that many of Hutton’s more radical proposals were either watered down or ignored altogether by the government which took power in 1997.

Free Breakfast Briefing: Improving Your Software Development Teams

Seminar, Council Chamber

If your company is planning to use or is currently using agile methods to develop software globally then you will benefit from this informative Breakfast Briefing. The Department of Computer Science at Brunel University London will showcase recent research providing real-world case studies of modified and improvised agile practices that help overcome the challenges of distributed collaboration. We realise that undertaking collaborative work in globally distributed environments can create significant challenges, especially as a number of agile principles and practices rely on physical proximity and face-to-face interactions. However, the research showcase will present models of working that can lead to better processes and techniques for globally distributed agile software development.
