Last Time

In our last session we talked about how testing fits into the agile process.  We want to bake quality into the product as we go - not try to debug it later.  We covered the Cohn's test pyramid, Marick test quadrants, and Krebs TETO (test early, test often).

Our Agile Library project is progressing with a chunk of code to query Agile books.  Next we need to display them in two ways.  We are practicing Agile Requirements, project management, and coaching as we conduct our library tasks.

This Time

We open our two session module on Leading Agile Teams and Next Steps.

    It was great having new people. This session was good to tie a lot of all of the concepts together and let people know this is not new, woo-woo stuff, but practices based on sound principles and years of practical applications, across many industries and disciplines.
