To kick off 2013 Vermont Code Camp early, Microsoft's Stephen Bohlen will be offering a special FRIDAY EVENING session on Agile Principles, Practices, and Processes at Champlain College.
February 2011 marked the 10th anniversary of the Agile Manifesto but after all these years there are still plenty of people that haven’t embraced Agile or still have important questions about it. What is Agile and what does it mean for me? How do I “become Agile”?
In this session, we will explore the underpinnings of the Agile software movement, discuss the management and technical practices that can lead to successful Agile projects, and understand how they are all interdependent and co-reinforcing. Attendees will better understand how Iterations, Test-Driven Development, Continuous Integration, and other practices can be used to provide a constant stream of timely and immediate feedback to the software development team, permitting rapid responses to changes over time.
Using a combination of lecture-style content and interactive group lab exercises, over the course of several hours in this workshop we'll explore techniques for effective agile estimation as well as pair-programming and test-driven development. Attendees will leave with a good understanding of the principles at the core of Agile as well as how to apply practices that help reinforce those principles in the process of software development projects.
If you have always wanted to better understand Agile and its influence on software development, then bring your laptop, your curiosity, and your open mind to learn what Agile is all about!
Come for the education, stay for the pizza!
