Transcript of AGILE

What is Agile
A group of software developments that is an umbrella over several methodologies (eg. DSDM, SCRUM, XP, LEAN ... etc.).

Based on:
Motivated team that communicates daily.
Feedback from the customer.
Flexibility that allows addition of new features to the software even if it is late in the development process.
Time box from 2 to 6 weeks.
Agile History
Agile Manifesto
The Agile Manifesto is based on 12 principles:

What Agile is not
Quick Fix

Without planning

Without documentation

For Everyone
What is Agile
Agile History
The Most Popular Agile Methodologies


Satisfying the costumer
(early and continuous delivery)
Welcome change requirements
(even if it is late)
Deliver working software frequently
(a short time scale)

Business people and developers must work together
(daily throughout the project)
Build projects around motivated individuals.
(by giving them the environment and the support they need and the trust to get the job done)
Agile process promotes sustainable development
(the sponsor, developers and user should be able to maintain a constant pace)
Working software is the primary measurement of progress

Face-to-face conversation
(is the most efficient and effective method of conveying information)

Continuous attention to technical excellency and good design enhances agility
(the art of maximizing the amount of work that is not done - is essential)

Organizing teams
(the best architecture, requirements and designs)

The team reflects on how to become more effective
(meet at regular intervals)
Dynamic Systems Development Method
Philosophy is that any project must be aligned to get real benefits to the business

to clearly define strategic goals

to focus upon early delivery

rapidly changing or highly emergent requirements

a series of iterations called sprints, which last from one to four weeks

each sprint begins with a brief planning meeting and concludes with a review
Extreme Programming
It works by bringing the whole team together in the presence of
simple practices
enough feedback

This will lead to:
enable the team to see where they are
to tune the practices to their unique situation.

It is based on values of simplicity, communication, feedback.

Lightweight Agile Software was Developed
This was against previous heavyweight methodology.

Heavyweight methodology means that there is a well defined plan between the developer and the customer. After the agreement, there is no change.

Lightweight methodology means that the core product is delivered, and then there are multiple changes based on the feedback from the customer.


The Manifesto for Agile Software Development
17 software developers met at the Snowbird resort in Utah, to discuss improvements in software development.They created the Manifesto for Agile Software Development.
Start of Incremental Software Development
This development is a method, where the model is designed, implemented and improved incrementally.

Incrementally means a little more is added each time until the product is finished and satisfies all of its requirements.
Increased Awareness of Incremental Software
Lectures were given all through the United States and articles were published to explain the benefits of this new methodology.
