Knowledgeable Agile Scrum Software Engineers
The Omnicon Group’s knowledgeable Agile Scrum software engineers are diverse in satisfying your software development needs. Whether your product requires a more traditional method to develop and test software, or something more targeted, we have the expertise to approach your project with just the right combination of talent and technique.
There are different approaches to software development. The more traditional, Waterfall, builds in phases, unfolding the entire development process into a single release. However, if your project has dynamic needs or constantly updated requirements, or if your project is market driven, this method may not be the most suitable.
The Agile Scrum framework provides a different methodology to software development, allowing for an iterative approach. Using daily feedback intervals allow teams to collectively discuss and propose implementation paths to resolve issues on a regular cadence.
Scrum Structure and Framework
There is a specific structure to Scrum. A series of fixed length iterations called Sprints give teams a framework to develop and test software keeping developers, test engineers, the customer, and all stakeholders abreast of the progress made.
This structure consists of four distinct steps:
- Sprint Planning: The team discusses the application requirements to determine what needs to be completed in the Sprint
- Daily Scrum: The Scrum Manager has a short meeting with the team to discuss progress and issues
- Sprint Demo: The developers and testers demonstrate what has been accomplished at the end of the Sprint
- Sprint Retrospective: The team reviews aspects that did and did not go well and what steps need to be taken to make the next Sprint more productive
