Overview/Description

This 13-video course helps learners explore Agile tools and their role in software development, along with other topics. Begin with a look at how Agile tools such as initiatives, themes, epics, and stories help define and manage scope better than traditional scoping methods do. Learn to identify best practices of using modularity, coupling, and cohesion concepts in Agile software design, and how to overcome the challenges of integrating Agile with UX design. Examine how concepts of extreme programming help integrate Agile into software development based on examples, and how continuous integration helps Agile software development, also based on examples. Learn about the effectiveness of pair programming, and the benefits of using test-driven development. Delve into code refactoring; best practices for the Agile coach; and best practices for overcoming the challenges of working with distributed teams in an Agile environment. The final tutorial looks at the parameters used to assess an organization to determine its Agile maturity.
