About This Class

Why Agile?

Agile is one of the great buzzwords in software development, but it is so frequently misunderstood. For example, many companies think they are doing Scrum and being agile because they are working in iterations and have planning meetings, but when a change in requirements comes along, the project stops and replanning/design takes place.

In this course we will look at:

  • The history of the waterfall model
  • How traditional waterfall models work
  • Where is the waterfall model suitable?
  • Advantages and Disadvantages of the waterfall
  • What is Agile?
  • The history of Agile
