  • Overview:

    Agile software development requires a unique approach to the actual writing of code. While there are no “silver bullets,” certain practices are much better at controlling quality, while retaining the flexibility and maintainability required of Agile’s incremental product development approach.

    This 3-day course, primarily for developers, provides an immersive, hands-on coding experience with a time-tested set of engineering practices including relentless refactoring, Test-Driven Development (TDD), Continuous Integration (CI), pair-programming, emergent design & architecture, and many other supporting practices.

    Learning Objectives:

    • A clear understanding of why our industry needs professional development & engineering practices
    • A clear understanding of why these particular practices are well-suited for Agile frameworks
      such as Scrum & Kanban.
    • Techniques for teams and individuals to realistically stick to these practices in a disciplined way.
    • Recognize the cultural and mindset challenges to being fully successful with Agile
    • Create an obstinate focus on the delivery of customer value
