The quarterly Downtown LA Meeting was held jointly with the Department of Health Services on 6th November. A panel of 4 speakers shared their experiences and debated the merits of Agile and Waterfall methodologies. Waterfall seemed to be very good for larger structured projects with a budget over at least $3M (such as a rocket). Agile was preferred for shorter term, more ambiguous projects, such as a web site. Although the speakers agreed that a combination of the two can work very well - Agile can be incorporated into a Waterfall project.
Thanks to our volunteers who gave up some of their precious time to attend this event!
