WHAT IS AGILE?
Agile software development focuses on keeping code simple, testing often, and delivering functional sections of the application as soon as they’re ready.
The goal of agile is to build upon small, client approved aspects of the project as it progresses, as opposed to delivering one large application at the end of the project. Here at LDM this is one of our biggest strengths. It enables us to keep our client’s end goals in mind at every step of the project; clear goals and consistent communication allow us to collaboratively create an awesome piece of tech!
We Kick-Off with a Sprint Meeting. What’s That?
When using Agile, we have a sprint planning meeting every 3 weeks, during which we (our client, your scrum master (the conductor of the tech orchestra) and the development team):
- Agree upon exactly what work will be accomplished during the development sprint stages.
- Client confirms what criteria need to be met in order for work to be approved and accepted.
- The development team determine how much work can realistically be accomplished during the sprint.
The above ensures all work is completed to the highest possible standard within the agreed time frames.
