Many organizations are transforming to an agile culture to accelerate software development and delivery. This course engages attendees in software development techniques that are best applied to align with agile values and principles.

After an initial introduction to agile values and principles, one might wonder how work is meant to reflect the meaning of ambiguous phrases in the Agile Manifesto such as “working software is the primary measure of progress” or “simplicity—the art of maximizing the amount of work not done—is essential.” How exactly are developers supposed to carry out programming in this new world?

This interactive workshop engages participants in pragmatic hands-on exercises to reinforce and practice what they learn. Participants walk away with experience in some of the most effective techniques used today and leave better equipped to develop software more effectively and efficiently.
