Recap: Effective agile developement talk at Coding Dojo

Recap from Feb 20,2013 talk at Codingdojo.co:

Agile software development is superior than Waterfall because high speed and adaptability. Agilemanifestor.org said it best, quote:

  • Individuals and interactions over processes and tools
  • Working software over comprehensive documentation
  • Customer collaboration over contract negotiation
  • Responding to change over following a plan

I gave a bunch of real life examples and role played with students. We talk about best practices using real life examples we face at Spot Trender. For instance:

  • How engineers can set expectation for business people.
  • How can the team get as much information as possible about product without fully coding it out.
  • How CTO can maximize an engineer capability.
  • How business people can hold engineers accountable, without micromanaging and saying dumb things like “this feature sounds simple enough.”
