Agile Software Development

Course Information and Syllabus

This course is an immersive experience in Agile software development. We study both the technical and cultural/social aspects of Agile, including:

  • pair and mob programming,
  • high-performance teams with the Core Protocols,
  • test-driven development,
  • behavior-driven development,
  • continuous delivery,
  • clean code,
  • refactoring,
  • extreme programming,
  • Scrum,
  • Kanban, and
  • Agile project management.

Students must have a laptop computer suitable for software development and bring it to on-campus class sessions.

By the end of this course, you will understand Agile software development so thoroughly that you’ll be able to be an effective leader or member of a great software product development team.

The fall semester is a "hybrid course." We meet over live video every or every other Monday at 5:30-7:30 pm ET beginning in late August. We also meet face-to-face for two full days on campus on September 23-24, 9:00am-5:00 pm ET. The on-campus weekend is required.

The summer semester is an on-campus face-to-face experience. We meet Monday-Thursday at 3:15-6:15 pm ET for three weeks beginning mid-June.

We use Canvas for assignment and grades only. The official course website, including the full syllabus, is at http://agilesoftwarecourse.org/.
