Invited Talk given by Kent Beck of Facebook, Inc., at the 2011 USENIX Federated Conferences Week, held June 14-17, 2011, in Portland, OR.

Abstract:
As deployment cycles shrink, what constitutes effective software engineering changes radically. Practices that bring improvement to a quarterly release cycle can be fatal with an hourly release cycle. This talk outlines the changes required of software engineering and organization at different cycle times: quarterly, monthly, weekly, daily, and hourly.
