Agile and Scrum 101
An Intro to Agile and Scrum
Agile software development describes an approach under which requirements and solutions evolve through the collaborative effort of self-organizing cross-functional teams and their customers/end users. It advocates adaptive planning, evolutionary development, early delivery, and continuous improvement, and it encourages rapid and flexible response to change.
Agile has become a key practice in both the technology and the business world reaching beyond software development, to find out more – look at the sessions being provided.
February 22: Lesson 1 - Getting Started: Attendees will learn the basics of Agile and Scrum including principles, terminology, who is typically involved (roles), and why it’s become so popular as a way to deliver software in the Business world. Get a sneak peek at what you’re missing!!
March 1: Lesson 2 - Stories and Scrum Ceremonies: Attendees will build on the concepts from the first session to dig deeper into the "How" of working in Scrum. Learn more about breaking a project into "Stories" and the standard checkpoints or "ceremonies" used by Agile teams to complete their work. You’ll wonder why you didn’t try it sooner!
April 12: Lesson 3 - Putting It All Together: Attendees will review the concepts from the first two sessions and use the "hands on" approach for those who like less talking & more doing! This session will also explore ways to move beyond the basics for those who want to learn more about training, certification, and other resources available.
All sessions will be taught and coordinated by volunteers from Fidelity's Women in Technology Special Interest Group. This is a great opportunity to learn from and network with professionals active in the field.
