XP Agile Training Course – Master Extreme Programming
In this online course, we take Lean principles and merge them with the Agile methodology/XP framework. Originally used to heighten output in manufacturing processes, Lean is now instrumental in Adaptive Project Life Cycles as it enables more reliable delivery times (Test-Driven Developments) while ensuring efficiency and customer satisfaction and is used by agile teams.

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
Frequently Asked Questions Related to Agile XP
What are the core values of Agile XP?
The core values of Agile XP are simplicity, communication, feedback, courage, and respect. These values guide the development team in their approach to software development.
What are the key practices of Agile XP?
Agile XP employs several key practices, including test-driven development (TDD), pair programming, continuous integration, small releases, and collective code ownership. These practices promote collaboration, quality, and responsiveness to change.
What is test-driven development (TDD)?
Test-driven development is a practice in which developers write automated tests before writing the actual code. This approach ensures that the code meets the specified requirements and helps maintain a high level of software quality.
What is pair programming?
Pair programming is a practice where two developers work together at a single workstation. One person writes the code (the “driver”), while the other observes, reviews, and provides immediate feedback (the “navigator”). This approach promotes knowledge sharing, code quality, and collaboration.
How does Agile XP handle changing requirements?
Agile XP embraces changing requirements by using short iterations called “iterations” or “sprints.” The development team works closely with the customer or product owner to prioritize and adapt to changing requirements throughout the project.
What is the role of the customer in Agile XP?
The customer, or product owner, plays a vital role in Agile XP. They collaborate closely with the development team, define requirements, provide feedback, and prioritize features based on business value.
How does Agile XP ensure software quality?
Agile XP ensures software quality through practices like test-driven development, continuous integration, and frequent feedback. By emphasizing testing, code reviews, and customer collaboration, Agile XP helps identify and address issues early in the development process.
Is Agile XP suitable for all types of projects?
Agile XP is particularly well-suited for projects with rapidly changing requirements, uncertain or evolving design, and a high degree of collaboration. However, its applicability may vary depending on the nature and complexity of the project.
What are the benefits of adopting Agile XP?
Some benefits of Agile XP include increased customer satisfaction, improved software quality, faster delivery of features, better team collaboration, enhanced adaptability to change, and reduced project risks.
