Agile Software development including Open Source tools

In this session, i will speak about agile software development processes using excellent open source tools like iSphere, iRPGUnit and RapidFire.
The iSphere project is very popular at IBM I Community and is downloaded more than 600,000 times until now.  It is an easily installable plugin for RDi and adds over thirty much-needed features that improve developer experience significantly. In this presentation, I will showcase some of the most useful features of the project.
Testing is the most important necessity before deploying new features on IBM I.  But this takes a lot of time and almost all developers don’t like this process very much. Open Source project iRPGUnit helps you to integrate automatic Unit testing components to check, if the predefined expected result matches with your software modification. To avoid big problems in production, iRPGUnit will help you to check your programs before deployment.
Installing big database changes on production boxes is also a very critical mission.  Most developers avoid this using some other strange fields in existing databases, who are not really designed for this behavior. RapidFire will help you, to install existing database files with a minimum of closed shop time. Installations can be started in production area with RapidFire, even if users and jobs are using the DB-Files. This process will be presented live at our booth included in our software change management tool CMOne!    
This presentation is suited for developers and managers also, because technical, strategic and economic aspects are focused.
