Synopsis

The course is for developers who want to understand how Agile methods impact the day-to-day process of writing software.

Many of the courses, books and papers on Agile development approach the subject from the point of view of the project manager or analyst. While that is a very important part of Agile, it is vitally important that those who are actually going to be producing the code - the developers - understand what is being proposed and how it will affect their work patterns and practices. This is especially true when you consider that many Agile methods involve the developers far more in the process than has traditionally been the case.

Therefore this course seeks to do two things: to help developers understand the rationale and mechanisms behind Agile methods, and also to explain common tools and working practices that may not be familiar.
