Silicon Valley Code Camp has chosen a few subject areas that have been organized into tracks. These tracks are designed and scheduled so that if you have a specific interest in the track theme you can attend all the sessions associated with that track in an order that makes sense with minimal overlap. Tracks are always of the highest quality content and are organized by a track lead, typically from one of our top sponsors. This does not mean that there are not other sessions in the same theme as the track, but those other sessions may overlap.
Agile development methods such as Scrum, Kanban, and Extreme Programming (XP) became the norm a decade ago at successful companies across the Silicon Valley. Whether you are an agile guru or simply agile-curious, the Agile track has something to offer you. Join us as we inspect, adapt, share, learn, and improve. And as we look at what it means to not just do agile but to actually be agile. Agile track organized by Ron Lichty, VP Engineering advisor and coach at Ron Lichty Consulting, Inc., who has been training teams and coaching executives in agile for more than a decade.

Fewer than 5% of software development managers have had a single day of training in management before becoming managers. We become managers thinking we can conquer management as easily as we did coding. It turns out managing requires both a dramatic change of focus and a whole lot of new skills.
