#GuildChat for 9/11/05: Agile Development

Our next #GuildChat takes place Friday, September 11 at 11am PT / 2pm ET. Our topic for this week’s chat is Agile Development.

Widely used in modified forms in the software development field, for many it is seen as a more efficient and effective approach to development work by teams. But what exactly is it? What are the key elements of an agile approach and when is it the right approach and when might the traditional waterfall approach be best?2015-01-09_11-14-16
