  • 1 – Classic SDLC2 – Make sure to talk about operations being the successful completion of an SDLC cycle but a part of an application’s life3 – We need Cycle in “Lifecycle”. Explain feedback loop and iterative nature of applications.
  • 0 - You want to <build something>CLICK1 - So you talk to a friendCLICK2 - Have…. An idea to build an appCLICK3 – So you decide to create a list of wishes for your appCLICK4 - You write down your idea for an app as your first wish – This is your primary requirement or storyCLICK5 - And then you write down some more ideas as more wishes for your appCLICK6 - Now that you have a set of wishes for your app you decide that you need to do some design, so you start turning your ideas into storyboardsCLICK7 – And these storyboards in turn cause you to discover more wishes for your appCLICK8 – And now your wishes have become a wishlist which we call a product backlogCLICK9 – But you are smart and you know you can’t have all your wishes at once so you begin to prioritize your wishes focusing on those you must haveCLICK10 – and now your wishlist has become a To Do ListCLICK11 – And from your To Do list of wishes you start adding the tasks, tests etc that will turn your Wishes into reality. We call this a sprint or iteration where you have prioritized your wishes into a set of tasks that you can execute on in a given period of timeCLICK12 – And now you can start building and testing and building and testing until you have completed all your tasks and all your tests are passing at which point…CLICK13 – You have a working app (of some sort)…CLICK14 – Now it is time to see if what you have built is good so you gather together a group of people (Stakeholders) to look at your working appCLICK15 – And you ask them to give you feedbackCLICK16 – And you take their feedback and that feedback turns into more wishes for your wishlist and the cycle continues…CLICK – TO NEXT SLIDE
