    Notes

    To prepare for the course, read and be ready to discuss these articles:

  • Agenda

    • Learn how agile works, in software or outside of it,
    • Learn how to articulate and deal with the weaknesses in agile development,
    • Test yourself and your partners with the Test-Driven Carpaccioexercise.
    • Learn to reduce risk and maximize results by viewing design as aKnowledge Acquisition activity.
    • Practice backing up your recommendations with solid theory, not just an appeal to authority,
    • Learn how to plan and track larger, more complicated projects usingProject Mapping or Blitz Planning (time permitting),
    … and most of all
    • Come face-to-face with yourself, your strengths and your weaknesses, as you confront one situation after another with equally inquisitive classmates.

  • Who Should Attend

    Do you have several years of real-life experience with agile software development? Do you also have a genuine interest in going beyond the basics, in deepening your knowledge and sharpening your tools? In that case this course is for you. This is not a course ­for agile­ beginners or the faint of heart. Expect to do homework, expect to be put through your paces, expect to dialog and argue, expect to have your beliefs challenged.
