Matrix of Services (MAXOS) is the secret weapon that Silicon Valley is using to disrupt and destroy competitors. Amazon, Google, HubSpot, and Edmunds don't use traditional product management or “Agile” methods. They don't wait around for Scrum sprints or SAFe-style meetings and planning cycles. They have divided their systems into hundreds of Web services, and they run continuous delivery on each service. Some of these organizations release more than 200,000 separate changes and adjustments per month.

Andy will demystify the MAXOS process. He will cover:

* Simple charts of the workflow for continuous coding, testing, and release at MAXOS scale

* The secret to using continuous integration to automate dependency management, coordinate dozens to thousands of developers, and clear away annoying Scrum-of-Scrum conversations.

* Expanding with simple programming teams, rather than more complicated multifunctional teams.

* How to use test layering, and additional test layers to actually increase quality while also increasing release frequency

* Architecture for continuous, Web-scale delivery

* How "Fast IT" continuous projects can interact comfortably with your reliable "Core IT" infrastructure

Then we will discuss these ideas with rebuttals and lively Q&A. Strong opinions are welcome.
