Abstract:
What is this thing everyone calls Agile? If you have been doing software development a different way your whole career you may be wondering why should I change, what’s so different?

To provide some additional context we’ll also:
  • Look back at how the Agile methods and practices emerged
  • Discuss the Agile Manifesto and 12 Principles and their resulting impact on the way that we do software development today
  • Describe what it’s like to work on Agile Project
  • Describe what you can do next Monday to get started

Learning Outcomes:
  • Learn common myths and misconceptions of agile
  • Understand the why behind what we do
