Mr. Pedro Fullstack, at your service.
Through Mr. Pedro's experience, I would like to tell you how incorporating an Agile framework to his process' management in his software factory endeavor, based on empirical evidence and ongoing improvement, made his project viable without adding unnecessary overhead to the management and, above all, valuing people as his biggest working capital.
Continuous Improvement - or how to put robots on your side.
inConcert is a company which produces telecommunication software. Our latest product is the Social Desktop or "i6".
i6 is comprised of several services (17) and a long list of internal projects (30+).
The amount of interactions between functionality and each one of these modules and the ways to configure them to prove quality, performance, etc. led the team to implement a couple of interesting "techniques":
- Continuous integration
- (and then) Continuous delivery.
This talk is meant to introduce the problematic and mechanisms we use to simplify the development, the test and production systems' configuration and the infrastructure that supports these techniques.
We will talk about the problems brought by the implementation of these techniques and how they are solved the same way deploying the application to production problems are solved: automatization, integration and continuous deliveries.
Finally we will present a little demo of how we use tools to automatize the creation of a small Jenkins cluster - a continuous integration server.

Design Driven Innovation: Systematizing the radical innovation.
In the world of technology, innovation is usually the difference between success and irrelevance. The good news is that innovating is easier than it looks like if a methodology is applied and if you search persistently.
In this talk we will begin with a short summary of the importance that innovation has in the future of the Uruguayan technologic industry, as well as the current status of its evolution locally.
Then we will focus on demystifying the innovation, learning the innovation methodology based on design and showing a couple application examples.
Finally we will share some advices on how to tackle the biggest socio-cultural barriers that keep us from being capable of creating global innovations.
