Velocity. Sprints. More points, more speed.
An obsession with speed often overtakes the core values of agile software development. It's not just development of software; it's development of working software. Sprints are not about sprinting; they're about sustainable pace. Time to market is less important than time in market. Full-stack development is normally a statement about technology, but it also applies to individuals and interactions. The full stack touches both the code and the world outside the code, and with that view comes responsibility and pause for thought. Doing the wrong thing smarter is not smart. The point of a team is its group intelligence not its numbers. Should you be scaling up? Or is scaling down the real challenge?
The distraction and misuse of speed, velocity, point-based systems, time, team size, scale, etc. is not the accelerant of agile development. Agility lies in experimentation, responsiveness and team intelligence.

Very informative talk. Really useful within our company
An important talk challenging perceptions of what agile does and should mean for a team. Great presentation style, engaging, challenging and occasionally humorous.
Interesting from start to finish, with a lot of humor to make it memorable.
Great talk: informative and entertaining.
Good and informative talk. Made me think a lot about the current status of our industry.
Thanks for this. A lot of intresting stuff to take
Very entertaining and mind opening talk!
This is easily one of the best keynotes that I've listened to. It was a relaxed, professional, and polished presentation, and extremely well structured. It had a lot of timeless advice which ties in with my own findings. Very valuable and I got a lot out of it.
Very good insight and challenges to assumptions.
The talk overall was quite good, easy to listen, also having quite some fun :) The only remark - from my perspective, it seemed like the speaker wanted to discuss too much in limited amount of time. Anyway, this talk raised quite some questions regards to time, estimates and software development in general.
Many insightful views in this keynote, eyeopening and entertaining, Thanks!
Once again a great keynote by Kevlin. I liked the build of the talk. From what we are doing to why it's wrong and that we know that for so long. Towards how we can do it better maybe. Because we are still learning.
Informative and funny
- Lots of laughter
- Plenty of serious mixed in
- Very relatable
What an awesome talk. I smiled from start to finish because of the humour whilst delivering a serious talk. Very, very well done.
Every CEO and CTO should watch this!
I really enjoyed the given examples and humor used to convey the messages
Brilliant as ever. Felt a bit rushed at the end but even that was expertly done.
Brilliant, insightful and fun keynote. Well done!
Great delivery and content. I learned that we still have a lot knowledge lost in historic documents which we do not know.
Very well presented and structured
Great talk with lots of inspiring thoughts. Perfect opening keynote!
Really loved this keynote! I like the way Henney related facts and humor. Equasions from Physics (v=s/t and F=ma) adopted to processes in Agile teams, with loads of humor but a very serious and layered undertone. Good fun and great learnings.
Contained everything a keynote needs: humor, anecdotes, a connection between people and technology and lots of things to think about.
Great talk! Really touched a lot of misconceptions with agile methodologies
Brilliant talk. Inspired me to speak at the unconf
Very nice talk and a lot of humour!
Wow, probably the best keynote, that I ever heard. It had the depth, it was dynamic, informative and funny...
What more could you want?
Very informative keynote. Having read Kevin's book and his talking pattern, this is yet another very inspiring talk.
I doesn't really matter what Kevlin is talking about, He will make something great out of it.
Great talk from a great speaker, reminding us to take a step back from our conventional wisdom and re-evaluate what we think we know.
Thank you for sharing knowledge
Interesting and informative talk!
The talk was very informative and entertaining
Very enjoyable content brilliantly delivered.
Informative, entertaining and inspirational
This will help me to be more clear to stakeholders and management why we take so many time for testing, reviewing our code and our development processes.
Good talk, perfect for the opening keynote!
