Agile software development
Tuesday - 12/11/2012, 7:09pm EST
One would think that a person with a master's degree in engineering would balk at flexible software developments, but Monahan thinks that modular development is a practical solution to a wide range of software projects.
If you are curious about terms like Kanban, eXtreme Programming (XP), and Scrum then you should listen to today's interview.
Depending on your budget, Scrum can deliver working software in weeks, Kanban in days, and XP in hours!
Microsoft (TFS) and IBM (Rational variation, Jazz) have embraced this method of delivery in chunks and asking from input from end users.
Whether your motivation is to produce solutions faster or your motivation is to produce software where code is not wasted, you should listen to Monahan's explanation of how agile software can benefit your agency.
