Episode 20: Lean Start-ups with Joshua Kerievsky

Joshua KerievskyJoshua Kerievsky, founder of Industrial Logic spends time with Craig and Renee going through some of his elements of his Lean Start-up presentation at the YOW! Developer Conference in Brisbane.

Within this podcast we learn what exactly a Lean Start-up is and how it isn’t just for new entrepreneurs.

In addition to the Lean Start-up presentation Josh also did a fantastic presentation on the Limited Red Society which focuses on using metrics and visualisation of these to behaviourally change a developer so that their tests pass sooner and more often with less compilation errors.

Other than being an early pioneer in eXtreme Programming, he is also the author of the best-selling Refactoring to Patterns book and provides Agile training from an amazing technical depth of experience.
