John-Ross Barresi | Project & Innovation Coordinator, Senior O&M Specialist, Guide Dogs Victoria
Chen Zhu | IoT Director, ThoughtWorks
Guide Dogs Victoria (GDV) is a charity that provides vital support to Australians with impaired vision or blindness, helping them achieve independent mobility. People with low vision face daily challenges, including navigating busy intersections, where they can easily veer outside of the safe crossing zone. This can significantly restrict their ability to travel individually.
ThoughtWorks partnered with GDV to observe and understand the challenges and needs of their clients, before exploring a number of potential prototypes that could be developed to address this issue. Together they designed and built four low fidelity prototypes, helping users ‘line-up’ while preparing to cross the road and providing them with feedback to ensure they stay in the safe crossing zone. After this initial discovery phase, they tested each solution with real users and narrowed the focus to build the most ergonomic and technically feasible solution.
Adam Boas | CTO, MyXplor
Agile has been a significant change agent and has experienced rapid adoption. It may well be that some of us have lost our way. This talk explores people and what it is about Agile that seems to attract great talent. It explores the Agile principles that allow us to harness that talent and it looks at some of the things that may look Agile, yet inevitably seem to drive off those talented people.
