Sustainable Digital Delivery - What Works?

Insights from industry experts

Hosted by Conflux | part of Leeds Digital Festival 2019 #LeedsDigi19

Most organisations have realised that a “fire and forget” attitude to digital delivery is not effective. But what techniques and approaches contribute to sustainable digital delivery? What software development and operations practices actually work?

Join us for this 2-hour session to hear first-hand stories of digital delivery success from industry experts based in Leeds. We’ll cover topics like API-first, software operability, MVP, and digital skills development with short talks from speakers followed by round-table discussions directly with experts.
