Is Agile development appropriate for mission critical applications? Romilly Cocking will start by offering a personal definition of agile development and will go on to examine and discuss the prerequisites for a successful agile project. Then he will present a short case study and conclude with a checklist for anyone considering an agile approach to a mission-critical project.

Romilly Cocking has worked as an independent consultant since 1994. Before that he ran Cocking & Drury, a software house that adopted an agile approach to enterprise software development in the late 1970s. Romilly is Chairman of the BCS Spa Conference for 2008/9 and is a member of the organising committee for XPDay7.
