Wayne Allen to Speak at Software Association of Oregon (SAO) Developer SIG on 11/30/2005


Agile software development is a conceptual framework for undertaking software engineering projects. There are a number of agile software development methodologies, such as those espoused by the Agile Alliance, a non-profit organization.

Most agile methods attempt to minimize risk by developing software in short timeboxes, called iterations, which typically last one to four weeks. Each iteration is like a miniature software project of its own, and includes all the tasks necessary to release the mini-increment of new functionality: planning, requirements analysis, design, coding, testing, and documentation. While an iteration may not add enough functionality to warrant releasing the product, an agile software project intends to be capable of releasing new software at the end of every iteration. At the end of each iteration, the team reevaluates project priorities.

Join us as two experts from the developer’s world and one from university will present their findings on agile development. The goal is to raise awareness of some issues not widely known by the systems development community. Speakers at this event include Ward Cunningham of Cunningham & Cunningham, who is one of the Agile Alliance founders, Wayne Allen of Corillian and Gregory Rose of Washington State University – Vancouver.
