Some Agile teams fail to figure out or implement technical practices that are necessary for long term success. Practices like automated builds, automated tests, automated deployments, continuous integration, and continuous delivery are now considered essential for the success of any software development project. Join us for a tour of software engineering best practices. We'll discuss what these practices are and their impact on scope, schedule, cost, resources and quality. We'll also share some ideas on how to start adopting these practices and how to incrementally introduce them and gradually improve your team's software development process.
