Iron Programmer Challenge: Agile Programming for Web and Mobile Apps
Wednesday, Feb. 23, 2:15 PM - 3:15 PM


"Iron Chef" meets HIT! We give two teams the same "ingredients" (specifications for a new tool) and they use "agile software development" (quick, iterative) to create a web or mobile solution.

Speaker Information:
Lyle Berkowitz, MD, medical director of clinical informatics at Northwestern Memorial Physicians Group in Chicago.

  • Learn about the benefits of agile programming methodologies and how they can be used to create solutions which can work in parallel or be interfaced with your EMRs and other IT systems.
  • Think about how own organization can use agile programming techniques to build small focused tools which result in "quick wins" for your users.
  • See and hear how two teams of agile programmers addressed this challenge and created brand new tools. These tools will be demonstrated at the session.
