Agile methodologies are standard practice in many companies. Scrum, XP and other popular and sometimes custom-designed agile methods are used in many projects around the world. But there’s a problem: not every agile project is a success. At Agile Day you can gain expert insights into the experiences of agile consultants, clients and developers, and learn how agile procedures can be applied to maximise profit in software development projects.
DevOps is the magic word for enterprises when it comes to reorganizing the relationship between development and operations. The advantages are obvious: in an increasingly dynamic business environment, artificial barriers should be torn down and direct communication should be allowed instead. But what kind of practical experiences have companies had with DevOps? What methods are there and which tools support DevOps in technical terms? DevOps Day answers these questions and provides direct feedback from a host of expert speakers.
Responsive Design Days
Nowadays websites have to be designed not only one for type of device, but for various systems such as tablets, smartphones and desktops. In this context, it is necessary to realize different navigation patterns and user concepts for each screen size, besides the fact that desktop-oriented websites are mouse-oriented, while Mobile front-ends usually rely on touch. How to effectively build websites that adapt the particular device capabilities and what designers have to consider in this process is what the Responive Design Days are all about.
Web Security Day
Insufficient web application security opens the door for theft and abuse of data. Unidentified security issues can even lurk in an application’s architecture.

Web Security Day will set out to highlight all these aspects and will provide participants with useful tips for securing their applications.
