Working in short, adaptive development cycles to give a project every chance of success
Agile development is all about encompassing an approach that’s collaborative, flexible and adaptive. From a technology perspective the world changes regularly and software teams no longer have years to bring new products to market. In short spaces of time competitor offerings or customer expectations can change, and a project risks irrelevance. Agile minimizes this risk by helping teams to collaborate together more and encouraging more frequent feedback loops so that they can adapt to change quickly.
We use the most appropriate method of agile development to suit your project needs.
An agile methodology which focuses on customer satisfaction and high quality deliverables
Extreme programming (XP) is an agile methodology that places the most emphasis on customer satisfaction. The framework aims to produce higher quality software and higher quality of life for the development team. This means building the software components you need as you need it.
At Sentia, we find this process valuable as it empowers our developers to confidently respond to changing customer requirements, even late in the life cycle and helping to keep costs down. The collaborative approach, where client, managers and development team are all equal, allows for every hand on deck to self-organise around the problem to solve it as efficiently as possible.
The reason we like XP is that it is well aligned to our own Sentia work practices- communication, simplicity, feedback, respect, and courage. Further, XP is based on sound values and principles which sets expectations on productivity between the team. Within this framework productive teamwork is consistent even if goals are changed to suit project needs.
Intelligent platform testing to facilitate rapid feedback, quality code and fast development
Test-driven development (TDD) is a software development technique that uses short development iterations based on pre-written test cases that define desired improvements or new functions. Each iteration produces code necessary to pass that iteration's tests.
In testing the developer refactors the code to accommodate changes. A key Test-driven development (TDD) concept is that preparing tests before coding facilitates rapid feedback changes.
Sentia believes that Test-driven development is a key component to delivering high quality software will minimal issues. It reduces the Cost of Change for an application and facilitates quality of code and development speed.
