Let’s Discuss about Agile Software Development!

In the meantime of technological revolution, we may hear several new terms about Design and Development and “Agile Development” is the most frequent term these days. Most of the time, I think about it and after getting nothing from seniors, I personally research about it and write this post about “Agile Development” in detail to make you aware about the term “Agile”.

Let’s start with beginning,

What is Agile?

Agile is the process for minimizing different levels of difficulties arises while designing and developing a web services, web application, software application or mobile application.

Just opposite to the traditional approach, agile methodology used to increase co-ordination and team bonding through collaborating cross-functional teams. Agility denotes to an adaptive plan (blueprinting), progressive development, on-time deployment, constant improvement and aggressive behavior adapt changes rapidly and flexibly.

Antiquity of Agile Software Development

The manifesto of Agile Software Development was first introduced or originated by 17 engineers on February 2001 that states:

We are uncovering better ways of developing software by doing it and helping others do it? Through this work we have come to value:

•    Individuals and interactions over Processes and tools
•    Working software over Comprehensive documentation
•    Customer collaboration over Contract negotiation
•    Responding to change over Following a plan

That is, while there is value in the items on the right, we value the items on the left more.

Although, there are a lot of criticism and improvements made in the manifesto and the process of Agility, but the core values of it still remains and it works well with the business values as well.

Quality Approach of Agility

In the IT industry, it’s a common phenomenon to adapt new things as soon as possible, but this adaptation irritate developer. Not because they don’t want to improve themselves, but because they didn’t hear anything about it and now they have to implement it without any research or practice.

A Similar thing will happen when a firm implements agile manifesto in the organizational structure to improve quality of the development.

To understand agile methodology, let’s start with the quality approach of Agility:

1.    Understand Ideology – Development and Deployment of a product solely depends over the understanding of base idea. If you are not clear with the client’s idea, you never satisfy him with your product. So, it’s an essential need to understand what your client wants from you. Just try to understand the ideology of the product. In the Agile methodology, company plans several discovery sessions to unveil base idea, challenges, business climate, customers and uses in front of cross-functional teams.

2.    Blueprinting – During ideology sessions, teams unveil the most possible features or blueprinting about what should be there in the product. In the blueprinting sessions, teams analyze most probable features that would be useful and the company owner communicate with the client to finalize these features along with the priorities, customization, scope, enlargement, testing and all.

3.    Iterations – When the client gets satisfied with the listed features and customized them according to their priorities, teams divide functionalities into time-boxed iterations, known as sprints. These small segments have fixed time duration around 1-4 weeks (depending on the project size) and cross-functional teams worked upon them from planning to test.

4.    Looping the cycle – Continual communication with client and teams helped to improve quality of the product and the functionality of sprints. If client enhances any functionality or moderate something at any time frame, it’s easy for the teams to moderate a particular time-box (sprint) rather analyzing the complete product. It helps to loop the cycle of that sprint from planning to development and form testing to deployment.
