Ottawa is Canada’s federal capital. With a metropolitan population of just over 1 million people, it’s the fourth-largest city in Canada. The Canadian magazine, MoneySense has rated Ottawa as Canada’s best place to live for two consecutive years. It has a reputation for being quiet, reserved, family oriented, laid back, into sports and boasts the world’s largest ice-skating rink in winter – the Rideau Canal. Where else can you skate to work?

With over one hundred thousand Federal Government employees, most people view Ottawa as a government town, but it’s also one of the most respected tech hubs in Canada. The city employs around 70,000 people in the tech sector, led by companies like Shopify, IBM, and QNX. With the highest concentration of scientists, engineers, and PhDs in Canada, Ottawa is a great place for tech start-ups or well-established business because of its pool of qualified candidates.

Now more than ever, it’s important to stay on top of technology trends such as Agile methodologies to ensure you aren’t left behind.

What is Agile? Should I attend Ottawa Agile classes?

Agile is a set of processes used primarily by software development teams. In contrast to the commonly used “Waterfall” process where a finished product is delivered all at once, Agile breaks the project up into small time-boxed chunks called iterations. The product produced at the end of each iteration is tested and reviewed by the project team and stakeholders. This continuous feedback cycle allows teams to more easily accommodate changes to priorities and requirements as required. Testing early and often lowers risk and results in higher quality software that better meets stakeholders needs.

The Agile Manifesto, developed in 2001, defines the four Agile software development values:

  • Individuals and Interactions over processes and tools
  • Working Software over comprehensive documentation
  • Customer Collaboration over contract negotiation
  • Responding to Change over following a plan

Popular agile software development frameworks include SCRUM, Kanban, Feature-Driven Development (FDD), Agile unified process (AUP), and the Scaled Agile Framework (SAFe®).
