CCAD and Scrum

Topic

Combined Conditional Access Development (CCAD), is a unique environment for Scrum, its a 50-50 venture between Comcast, the largest cable operator in the United States, and Motorola, a global supplier of cable equipment and mobile equipment and services.

CCAD is working on, among other things, next-gen CA systems and multi-stream Cable CARDs based on Motorola's MediaCipher CA technology.

This talk is about CCAD's struggles with co-development and how Scrum helped. Mike will also talk about how Scrum helped internally and how they are addressing Motorola process requirements.

Speaker

Mike Buckley Director Software Engineering Responsible for Software infrastructure (best practices, procedures, tools, etc.), configuration management, lab and IT. He has been working at CCAD since its inception (April 2005.)
