We use many aspects of Agile Software Development at Push Interactions. Below is a discussion of what are some of the elements of Agile Software Development.
What is Agile?
Agile is a software development methodology that emphasizes flexibility, customer satisfaction, and continuous improvement. It’s a collaborative approach that involves cross-functional teams working together to deliver high-quality software.
What is the Agile Methodology?
Agile methodology is based on the Agile Manifesto, which outlines four values and twelve principles that guide agile development:
- Individuals and interactions over processes and tools
- Working software over comprehensive documentation
- Customer collaboration over contract negotiation
- Responding to change over following a plan
What are some Key Principles of Agile?
- Deliver working software frequently, with a preference for shorter timescales.
- Welcome changing requirements.
- Business people and developers must work together daily throughout the project.
- Build projects around motivated individuals. Give them the support and environment they need, and trust them to get the job done.
- The most efficient and effective method of conveying information to and within a development team is face-to-face conversation.
Agile methodology is typically implemented using a framework such as Scrum or Kanban. At Push Interactions we use Kanban to organize our work.
What is Kanban?
Kanban is a visual framework for managing and completing tasks. It involves using a board or card system to track tasks from start to finish.
This gives clients a high level overview of Agile. It is a greatly improved approach compared to older software development models for the type of work that Push Interactions works on.
