Agile Engineering and Quality
|Thursday, July 27, 20177
12:00 PM - 1:00 PM ET
Presenter: Kyle Griffin
Between 1999-2001, all the initial signatories of the Agile Manifesto spent a lot of time at the eXtreme Programming conferences, which were primarily, if not exclusively, about the technical side of Agile. Then the manifesto was signed, and from 2002-2013, the technical side of Agile was nearly never discussed by anyone. Around 2014, folks started noticing that the technical side of Agile was every bit as essential and foundational as it had been back at the dawn of the millennium. But since 2000, the topic grew. There are many ways to break technical Agile down. One is to reference the original XP approach, and the two offshoots: DevOps, and Software Craftsmanship. The other split one can do is to separate technical Agile into three areas: Agile Engineering (What the developer does differently while writing code), Agile Quality (how the traditional quality discipline has to change radically in an Agile world), and Agile Infrastructure (how traditional infrastructure groups have to change). This webinar is an introduction to Agile Engineering and Agile Quality, the half-lost disciplines necessary to make Agile projects work.
