Agile Essentials: Dev and Engineering Practices
Agile technical practices aim to produce higher quality products as well as a better quality of life for delivery teams. Aspects of eXtreme Programming (XP), which predates even the Agile Manifesto, are now the norm in high-performing organizations: robust test automation; continuous integration, deployment, and delivery; regular collaboration, including pairing and ensemble programming; and architectural simplicity. You don’t have to be an engineer to get value from technical agility. In this session, we’ll make these concepts accessible whether you’re a longtime coder, teammate, or leader looking to support your developers in doing their best work. You’ll leave with insight into practices that enhance code quality, reduce defects, improve maintainability, remediate technical debt, and support modernization. Agile Essentials sessions are designed for first-time Agile Alliance conference attendees and anyone who’s new to agile or looking for a refresh. Each one provides a broad overview of key agile practices and the principles behind them. You’ll leave feeling grounded, up-to-date on the latest agile concepts, and ready to take on new challenges in any role or any agile framework.
