Course Overview

The word Agile has passed into the wider buzzwordsphere familiar to all in development. But that does not mean its concepts, culture, associated processes and practices or implications are as widely understood. Agile development involves more than a passing familiarity with Scrum terminology, more than the occasional use of an automated testing framework and more than simply rebranding either a chaotic or bureaucratic in-house process to proclaim "We're Agile!"

Architecture is often placed falsely in conflict with Agile approaches, and vice versa. Architecture is not something that is completed and set in stone in a design phase, caught and trapped in a document, administered and policed by a select few. Architecture defines the significant decisions that characterise a system, decisions that are discovered and made at different times during the process of development, and by different roles.

This one-day session will take a look at the implications and interactions between software architecture and agility, highlighting the amicable and necessary relationship between the two.
