What is Agile XP – Extreme Programming

Agile XP – Extreme Programming is an agile software development framework that not only produces superior quality code, but also encourages a better work-life balance for the engineering team. This course provides a basic understanding of AGILE/XP principles and tools and techniques used in implementing Agile practices/XP in a coordinated fashion to ensure successful project development outcomes.

Why does it work?

Extreme Programming is successful because it stresses customer satisfaction, as opposed to delivering everything the customer could possibly want on some date far in the future. The emphasis is on delivering the software in increments that provide the most value to the customer first. Extreme Programming empowers developers to confidently respond to changing customer requirements, even late in the life cycle.

ITU Online Training Course

This course integrates Lean Software Development Principles, where applicable, with AGILE/XP. Lean is a driven development business methodology, initially used to improve throughput in manufacturing, that is used in Adaptive Project Life Cycles to achieve more predictable delivery, greater efficiency, and a customer-centric mindset. Applying Lean,  along with principle of Kanban, to project management and development team facilitates empowerment to project team members to provide better clarity, and delivers projects with an emphasis on delivering value (Feature-Driven Development) to internal and external customers.

Fundamental Principle You Learn

In this online course, students will learn the benefits of this approach and how XP emphasizes teamwork with pair programming and other tactics. XP relies on a simple, yet effective environment that facilitates the formation of high performing teams. The team self-organizes around the problem to solve it as efficiently as possible.

Agile XP improves a software project in four ways:

  • Emphasis on communication between the team and stakeholders
  • Simplicity of methodology
  • Timely feedback from stakeholders
  • A safe and courageous environment within the team

This Agile XP course includes 4 hours of training and 15 course videos. Below are the topics you will learn in this course:

  • Agile Principles and Mindset
  • Value Driven Delivery
  • Stakeholder Engagement
  • Team Performance
  • Adaptive Planning
  • Problem Detection and Resolution
  • Continuous Improvement

Understanding the key terms related to the XP Agile Training Course is crucial for anyone interested in mastering Extreme Programming and Agile methodologies. These terms not only provide a foundation for learning but also enhance communication and efficiency in project management, software development, and team collaboration. Here’s a list of essential terms and their definitions:

TermDefinition
AgileA set of principles for software development under which requirements and solutions evolve through the collaborative effort of self-organizing cross-functional teams.
XP (Extreme Programming)An Agile software development framework that emphasizes customer satisfaction, rapid delivery of high-quality software, and continuous improvement.
Lean PrinciplesA methodology that focuses on minimizing waste within manufacturing systems while simultaneously maximizing productivity.
Test-Driven Development (TDD)A software development process that relies on the repetition of a very short development cycle: requirements are turned into very specific test cases, then the software is improved to pass the tests.
Pair ProgrammingAn Agile software development technique in which two programmers work together at one workstation; one writes code while the other reviews each line of code as it is typed in.
Continuous IntegrationA software development practice where developers regularly merge their code changes into a central repository, followed by automated builds and tests.
Small ReleasesA practice in Agile frameworks where software is built in small, incremental segments and released frequently, allowing for regular feedback and adjustments.
Collective Code OwnershipA concept in Agile and XP where code is not owned by an individual developer or team, but by the team as a whole, enabling anyone to improve it.
IterationsShort time frames (timeboxes) that typically last from one to four weeks, during which a set of activities is performed and a working product increment is created.
Product OwnerA role in Agile software development responsible for defining the features of the product and deciding on the release date and content.
Software QualityThe degree to which software fulfills the specified requirements, needs, and expectations of the customer or user.
Agile MindsetA set of attitudes and values that support the Agile working methodology, including collaboration, flexibility, continuous improvement, and responsiveness to change.
Value Driven DeliveryAn Agile principle that focuses on delivering value to the business and customers through high-quality software solutions.
Stakeholder EngagementThe process of involving stakeholders (individuals or groups who are affected by or can affect a project) in the decision-making process, ensuring their needs and concerns are addressed.
Team PerformanceA measure of how effectively a team achieves its goals and objectives, often enhanced in Agile and XP by practices like communication, collaboration, and regular feedback.
Adaptive PlanningA planning approach in Agile that is flexible and adjusts to changing project requirements and circumstances.
Problem Detection and ResolutionAgile practices that focus on identifying and solving problems quickly and efficiently to maintain project momentum.
Continuous ImprovementThe ongoing effort to improve products, services, or processes over time in Agile and XP methodologies.
CommunicationThe exchange of information and ideas within an organization, particularly important in Agile and XP for ensuring team alignment and project success.
FeedbackInformation provided by stakeholders or team members about their experience with a product or service, essential for guiding future development in Agile and XP.
CourageThe quality of being brave and confident enough to do what you believe in, crucial in Agile and XP for embracing change and making tough decisions.
RespectTreating colleagues and stakeholders with consideration and valuing their contributions, an essential part of the Agile and XP working environment.
