Course Summary

Agile methodologies are quickly becoming the most practical way to create outstanding software. This course will teach students the basic premises and techniques behind Agility so they can apply them to projects. Scrum, Extreme Programming, Lean, Dynamic Systems Development Method, and Feature Driven Development are some of the leading methodologies under the Agile umbrella. Because organizations do not adopt one methodology in its pure form, students will explore each to learn their strengths and weaknesses. Students will be given time to practice Agile and put the knowledge, skills, tools, and techniques taught in this course to work. They will work in teams through the Agile process including Iteration planning, product road mapping and backlogging, estimating, user story development iteration execution, and retrospectives.
