    • Supercharge Your Agile Toolbox, 10/08/2013 - http://is.gd/vcN954 Whether you’re a novice or a seasoned veteran, there are multiple benefits to adopting an agile methodology. But the world is bigger than just agile. Important ad hoc work doesn’t live in sprints. Critical work can fall through the cracks as teams try to handle multiple streams of work requests. Collaboration can get broken on the work across teams. You need something more.
      • Select the best methodology for the job—no more square pegs and round holes
      • Optimize for DevOps—deploy software using Continuous Delivery principles with one end-to-end tool
      • Prioritize work across multiple projects—make sure the right work gets done at the right time
      • Collaborate in the context of work—stop losing work in email and chat, and eliminate expensive and frequent status meetings
      • Do it all in one tool—request management, work prioritization, Agile, ad hoc work, traditional projects, and collaboration. Don’t bolt on a disconnected tool

    • Changing How Programmers Think about Parallel Programming (http://is.gd/RcitCk) Wednesday, July 17, 2013, at PT/6 pm GMT This webinar will provide an introduction to parallel execution models, focusing on how programmers think about writing programs. Does the way that programmers or algorithm developers think about the way a parallel computer works influence the approaches that they take? Can the choice of programming approach lead to inefficient solutions? Do we need new ways to program parallel systems? This session will explore common approaches for developing parallel programs and how they can limit scalability and reliability–whether the programs are for single chip parallelism or the world’s largest parallel computers. The importance of an execution model and its relationship to programming models and programming systems will be covered, and why we need to consider new execution models for the parallel systems of the future.
    • Engineering SaaS: An Agile Software Approach Q&A http://learning.acm.org/webinar/patterson_qa.cfm May 8, 2013, at 2 pm ET/1 pm CT/12 noon MT/11 am PT/6 pm GMT Software as a Service (SaaS) and Agile software development started simultaneously but independently. SaaS deploys software at one site made available over the Internet. Agile relies on incrementally developed prototypes and continuous customer feedback. Since Agile embraces change, it is an excellent match to SaaS’s rapid evolution. Thus, Amazon, eBay, Facebook, Google...rely on Agile.
