Introduction to Agile Development: Principles and Beyond
Agile software development is about finding better ways to deliver software
than the way we've always done it. It's based on a simple set of principles,
things that we believe are true about software development. In this talk,
Richard Lawrence will introduce the core agile principles and
show how they're applied in Scrum, Extreme Programming, and Lean Software
Development ... and how you can apply them on your projects. There will be time
for questions and discussion to dig into the areas that interest you most.
Lawrence is Solutions Manager for Agile Delivery at Avanade, Microsoft and
Accenture's joint venture. He has been practicing agile software development
with XP, Scrum, and Lean since 2001 and is passionate about helping software
teams work more productively and more sanely at the same time (yes, it's
possible!). Richard is a Certified Scrum Coach and was a speaker at the
Agile 2006 and Agile 2007 conferences.
This talk is sponsored by the Computer Science Department ACM Student Chapter.
