(Often the Hard Way)
Up until 2012, I worked for a variety of venture-funded software firms entirely in the telecom space ranging from telecom vendors to B2B and B2C companies.
My first introduction to Agile and Scrum was my last role prior to CodeStringers, so all-told I’ve been working with agile methods for 15+ years.
But reality is that my real experience – in which I learned the lessons one only learns by “doing” has come since joining CodeStringers in 2012. Since then and primarily because CodeStringers provides custom software development services (in addition to building our own products), I’ve had the opportunity to oversee the definintion, development and maintenance of dozens of software products for clients ranging from startups to large enterprises.
That experience has afforded me quite a bit of development methodology wisdom. Earlier on in this experience, I created and “agile primer” presentation that I shared with clients to help their teams better understand and apply the agile method. And on this page, I’ll share what I’ve learned.
