Agile Conference Pakistan 2014 (ACP2014) aims to provide a forum for fruitful interactions and discussions among
Software Developers, Testers, Designers, Architects, Team Leads, Project Managers, CEOs, CIOs, CTOs, COOs, Executives, Academics, and Researchers.
ACP2014 focuses on the use of Agile methodologies in developing projects, especially those related to software development. In fact, Agile is a relatively recent methodology used in the development process of a project. Therefore, it is important to provide knowledge to the audiences on how to use Agile in their projects. The program will provide numerous opportunities for academic and industry participants to collaborate and learn from each other.

He received his Master of Information Technology Degree from UAAR (Pakistan), M.Sc Computer Science from UTM (Malaysia) and Ph.D. from Kookmin University (South Korea).
Agile methods such as Scrum, Feature Driven Development (FDD), Dynamic System Development Method (DSDM) and eXtreme Programming (XP) have been criticized due to the lack of availability of security elements in their various phases and practices, resulting in the development of unsecure software. Thus, we have proposed the idea of a set of security-focused elements to enhance the existing agile models. In this presentation, the findings of the related research and the highlights of improved agile models after the integration of security, are presented.
Zeeshan is using agile since 2008, having overall 10 years experience IT. He uses SCRUM and KANBAN methods to develop software and has either worked or managed projects from enterprise-wide products to 3D games.
Dr. Sara Shahzad is an assistant professor in the Department of Computer Science, University of Peshawar, Pakistan. She is the team lead of software engineering group of the department. She has a PhD in Agile Software Development Methodologies. Her other research interests include software quality engineering, usability engineering and empirical methods in software engineering research.
