Agile development lifecycle


Agile Methodology

In these fast forwarding times, learning about mechanics that help achieve your goals in shorter periods of time, but with a greater ratio of success will always be a good use of your time, that's why I invite you to know about the methodology  known as agile, and its lifecycle.

As a definition Wikipedia says that “In software development, agile (sometimes written Agile) practices include requirements discovery and solutions improvement through the collaborative effort of self-organizing and cross-functional teams with their customer(s)/end user(s), adaptive planning, evolutionary development, early delivery, continual improvement, and flexible responses to changes in requirements, capacity, and understanding of the problems to be solved.” 

In other words, implementing this practice in the management of developing teams in your company, will make those teams capable of designing solutions to your customers in a better and more efficient way, and of course in less time.

This methodology works in 5 stages, Ideation,Development,Testing, Deployment and Operations.


Stage 1: Ideation

Working closely with stakeholders, the business team, developers, and the future users of the app,try to answer this questions:

What's the purpose and goal of the new software?

What's the business and user requirements?

Which tasks are a priority? Try to identify resources

Stage 2: Development

Now it's time to start building the first iteration of the software. The development phase includes all related production tasks, such as UX/UI design, architecting, and coding.

Stage 3: Testing

Then you should test the app to:

  • Check that the code is clean

  • Address bugs and errors

  • Perform trial runs

Stage 4: Deployment

In this stage the app is ready to meet the world, so distribute it

Stage 5: Operations

Never lose sight of the importance of feedback, make improvements based on these information.
