Course Outline

I. Benefits of Agile Engineering Practices
Agile Engineering is a set of practices adopted by many of the most successful Agile teams and organization. In adopting Agile there are many expected benefits. In this course we will revisit those benefits and introduce the practices of Agile Engineering. In this course we will introduce many of those practices and how that can increase the chance of success in achieving those expected benefits of Agile.

  • Expected Value, Benefits of Agile
  • Using Agile Engineering Practices achieve Realization of Value & Benefits

II. Design Practices
Quality and simple design are primary technical drivers in Agile development. We will discuss common design principles that help keep things simple while allow the product to emerges and change over time.

  • Quality Code & Design
  • Simple Design
  • Emergent Design

III. Collaboration Practices
Collaboration is one of our core Agile values. We will explore the criticality of developer and team collaboration practice.

  • Code Review
  • Collective Code Ownership
  • Pairing

IV. Development Practices
Developer practices is an earmark of delivery and the ultimate way that a team can exhibit completion of a product. We'll introduced some additional development practices beyond simply "writing code" that are critical in building and maintaining a sustainable product.

  • Automated Unit Testing
  • Test Last Development
  • Test-Driven Development
  • Inspections, Technical Metrics, & Technical Debt

V. Testing Integration, & Delivery Practices 
Continuous testing, integration and delivery is ongoing throughout an Agile project. We'll explore the key practices and timing of testing at various levels as we'll as additional technique such as Specification by Example that more often appear in Agile projects over the traditional projects. The goal of "delivering software frequently" drives our ultimate need for continuous delivery.

  • Continuous Integration
  • Agile Testing
  • Acceptance Testing & Specification by Example
  • Continuous Delivery
