Intro to Agile - June 22, 9AM - 5PM
The purpose of this class is to teach participants more about basic agile concepts. This course will present the principles, practices, terminology, tools and techniques associated with major agile methodologies
What is Agile?
Just what is agile software development?
In 2001, a group of methodologists got together to agree on a common set of guiding principles around effective software development to combat many of the problems that caused software projects to fail. From those principles have come a number of “agile” methodologies that are being implemented to some degree in many organizations today.
Cost: $295 (non-members), $195 (members)
From a pure definition standpoint, agile is a conceptual framework generally centered on iterative and incremental delivery of working software, driven by the customer. The iterative part suggests that we are repeating, or iterating, a complete lifecycle of development over a short, fixed span of time. With each of these iterations, we ship some working subset, or increment, of features.
