About this Session

We work at Unruly, the leading programmatic platform for social video advertising. We've been using Lean / XP from the start because it helps us launch new product solutions quickly into an environment where performance matters.

In this talk, we'll share our latest experiences around applying a Lean approach to new feature delivery. We develop barebone solutions and test them in live integrations to learn more about what works best, this helps us build product features to meet our business needs.

Come to this talk to hear how we build learning in when developing new products, where features are rolled out rapidly but gradually.
