What are some of the key features of Agile Development?
Some of the key features of agile development are,
• Collective code ownership and freedom to change.
• Incremental approach (e.g. user stories are incrementally implemented). Automation (e.g. TDD — Test Driven Development).
• Customer focused (for e.g. internal and external users and business analysts are your immediate customers).
• Design must be simple.
• Designing is an ongoing activity with constant re-factoring to achieve the rules of code simplicity like no duplication, verified by automated tests, separation of responsibilities, and minimum number of classes, methods, and lines.
