Tired of Agile? Interested in applying the latest scientific findings
on software construction methods and programmer productivity? Check
out Drunken Stumble!

Drunken Stumble is a method of building software that uses two stages:
a lean, which represents the goal of the programmer or team, and a
stumble, which is series of automatic "next steps". It's a serious
methodology that works.

In this talk Garrett will demonstrate how this simple two stage method
results in better software in less time. Design and architecture give
way to iterative experimentation. He will show that evolutionary
improvements, resulting from "obvious next steps" can lead in time to
revolutionary results - without traditional design speculation that
plagues so many software efforts.

This is not a light-weight talk about velocity or pair programming.
It's a scientific exploration of how brilliant things are created and
how to work within the laws of physics as software programmers. If
you're passionate about creating great software, don't let the title
fool you - Drunken Stumble is a refreshingly sober approach to
software that will make you a better programmer!
