Agile & Scrum Synergistic Web Technologies30 Nov 2014, by Developer in
Agile and Scrum are growing more popular by the day. Clients wants to ship something to consumers quickly and maintain a consistent and rapid update cycle. So Scrum fits the bill perfectly. So let’s assume we’ve mastered the Scrum process. We have a team that knows the ins and outs of Scrum and we want to maximize the effectiveness of that team so how do we accomplish that? We can start by identifying technologies that are quick to develop with but offer enough power and control to make changes quickly. We also want to make sure that technology isn’t limiting our ability to create new features and isn’t simple a “drag ‘n drop” type of framework.
Bootstrap & Foundation
Both of these technologies accomplish similar things and are great for quick front end design work. The main benefit to scrum is the ability to quickly change the look and feel of our application. Making sweeping changes is fairly painless and the product owner can really get a feel for different looks by checking the style guide.
I have only just scratched the surface on these technologies, there are so many out there but I mainly worked with the above mentioned ones so I covered those. Some cool database technologies are MongoDB and FireBase which I have read about but not had a chance to play with so I might cover those in a future post. The main point is, Scrum is provides a short sprint cycle where things can change rapidly and in order to move quickly along with that cycle we should try to use technologies that can fit into those short sprints efficiently.
