Agile Software Development Training

Agile software development refers to a group of software development methodologies based on iterative development, where requirements and solutions evolve through collaboration between self-organizing cross-functional teams.

Analysts contend that the ultimate value in Agile software development is that it enables teams to deliver value faster, with greater quality and predictability, and greater aptitude to respond to change.

Additionally, Agile has been proven to save organizations money. Agile projects contain 93% fewer defects, take less time to complete and reduce waste.

Agile software development focuses on keeping the process lean and creating minimum viable products (MVPs) that go through a number of iterations before anything is final.

Feedback is gathered and implemented continually and in all, it is a much more dynamic process where everyone is working together toward one goal.

Agile software development also involves a specific way of thinking and acting. Agile is all about short cycles, iterative and incremental delivery, failing fast, getting feedback, delivering business value to customers early and about people, collaboration and interaction.

Agile methodology is an iterative, time-boxed, people-oriented and result-focused approach to software delivery that builds software incrementally from the start of the project, instead of delivering it all at once near the end.

Agile methodology is aligned with the values and principles described in the Agile Manifesto for Software Development. According to this principle, requirements, plans, and results are evaluated continuously; teams have a natural mechanism for responding to change quickly.

Agile methods began appearing in the early 1990s as the software industry exploded. Agile software development gained immediate traction because traditional software development approaches appeared to many software developers to be too rigid and resulting in over-budgeting and delays.

Agile Software Development Training Course by Tonex

This course emphasizes the rapid realization of system value through disciplined, iterative and incremental software development techniques, and elimination of wasteful practices.

Attendees will learn the full spectrum of Agile Methods, including Scrum, Extreme Programming, Lean, Crystal Methods, Dynamic Systems Development Method, and Feature-driven Development. These methods promote teamwork, rich and concise communication, and the frequent delivery of running tested systems containing the highest priority customer features.

Agile methods are contrasted with common workplace practices and traditional methods such as CMMI, PMI/PMBOK, and RUP. Examples of agile adoption in industry are covered. Additional topics in the course include team dynamics, collaboration, software quality, and metrics for reporting progress.

We discuss challenges include smooth iteration and release planning, collaboration amongst cross-functional teams and reliable quality assurance for multi-layered and composite applications. We also address the most effective way to manage dynamic requirements and tests.

Global principles are presented with detailed practices that can be easily implemented by attendees, providing a comprehensive understanding of the important elements of agile software development methods.
