Limited Capacity seats available

Abstract:
This session will take us on a journey from idea to "validated learning”, implementing an idea and measuring for its expected effect on behavior. Cloud computing, Agile software development, and Lean Startup have all contributed to lowering the cost of learning and accelerating time to market for businesses. Platform as a Service (PaaS) is further accelerating the validated learning cycles in application development to increase successful business outcomes. We will show how to use Cloud Foundry as a PaaS and a Lean Startup approach to take us from zero to a valuable platform that helps us inspect and adapt our business based on validated learning.
  • Using Lean Canvas to identify our first experiment
  • Developing a Landing Page MVP application to run the first experiment
  • Deploying to Cloud Foundry, a Platform as a Service (PaaS), for executing the experiment
  • Measure the results of the experiment
  • Reviewing the Lean Canvas to decide what we need to learn next
  • Use a Blue/Green Deployment approach for updating our application

Learning Outcomes:
  • After this session, participants will take away an approach for validating their own business ideas through fast, focused learning cycles. Software developers will also take away tools and techniques for enabling fast feedback using Cloud Foundry as a PaaS.
