Overview

Agile Software Development refers to a set of methods and practices developed around the turn of the 21st century and published in the "Agile Manifesto."

At its core, Agile focuses on:

  • Individuals and interactions over processes and tools
  • Working software over comprehensive documentation
  • Customer collaboration over contract negotiation
  • Responding to change over following a plan

Agile methodologies encourage collaboration between teams, an incremental and iterative development strategy, and a flexible process that allows for early and continuous delivery of quality, functional software.

Agile Boot Camp participants are prepared to implement Agile principals and practices through lecture, interactive discussion, real-world examples, and hands-on exercises.
