This video introduces extreme programming (XP) as a software engineering methodology that uses agile practices to produce software products in short weekly increments. Key practices of co-located teams, informative workplace, team collaboration, collective responsibility, and other techniques of effective communication are also discussed in this video.
- Extreme Programming, or XP, is a collection…of software engineering practices.…It was introduced by Kent Beck in 1996…when he was leading the development…of a payroll system at Chrysler.…XP is a lightweight, innovative customer…and developer focused methodology.…XP has values, rules, principles, and practices.…Extreme Programming uses weekly iterations.…Each iteration, or cycle, starts with…the customer providing a list of requirements…that they would like delivered by the end of that week.…
The developers break the requirements,…or stories, into tasks, and then estimate…and assign the tasks to themselves.…The XP team produces an implementation…of user stories on a weekly basis.…XP teams also have a quarterly cycle,…which is the container for the weekly cycles.…The quarterly cycle enables the team…to do high level planning and align their work…with the longterm goals of the enterprise.…
Like Sprint Retrospectives in SCRUM,…the quarterly cycle is an opportunity…for the XP team to reflect on themselves…and improve the teams efficiency.…
