Gal Marder – Agile software craftsmanship – AgileIL11
Practicing Agile at the process level yields a great performance boost to development teams. In order to be able to persist a fast going pace, it is imperative to craft the code in a way that will support Agile. Embracing change in the process level without supporting it in the code level could bring a project to a total disaster.
Agile Software Craftsmanship is all about creating code that is Agile enough to support a real Agile process. In this lecture, we will introduce best practices for writing clean Agile code. The session will introduce the practices of Clean Code, Refactoring, Unit testing, Test Driven Development, Acceptance Test Driven Development, and Pair Programming and the importance of these practices in a truly Agile organization.
