Agile & XP Software Development Coaching

 

If your programming/development team is looking to become more productive with their projects, the move to agile software development might be right for you.  I work with teams large and small, higher education and commercial.  Using the following agile/XP principles, your development team will be more productive and turn out higher quality product.

 

  • story-based requirement planning

  • short, sprint-based development

  • test-driven development

  • in-depth project retrospectives

  • pair programming

  • self-motivated, cohesive teams
