  • Agile Software Development: Practices through Values C Sc 335 Rick Mercer
  • Goal and Outline
    • Main Goal:
      • Suggest practices, values, and some process for completing a final project on time that is better than any one could do it in in four times the time.
    • Outline
      • Distinguish Waterfall (plan driven) from Agile
      • 11 Practices of quality software development
      • Four values of Extreme Programming (XP)
      • Process considerations adapted from Scrum
  • Waterfall Model
    • Waterfall was described by 1970
    • Understood as
      • finish each phase
      • don’t proceed
      • till done
    • W. W. Royce criticized this
      • proposed an
      • iterative approach
  • Became Popular
    • Management liked phases to easily set deadlines
    • Customers provide all requirements
    • Analysts translate requirements into specification
    • Coders implement the specification
    • Reviews ensure the specification is met
    • Testing is performed by others (QA)
    • Maintenance means modifying as little as possible
      • old code is good code
    • Change is hard (and costly)
  • Sprial
    • Dr Barry Boehm proposed a spiral approach
  • Waterfall
    • It became popular
      • This process is still is used a lot
    • Craig Larman's book [1] provides proof that waterfall has proved to be a terrible way to develop software.
      • In his study, 87% of all projects failed.
      • The waterfall process was the "single largest contributing factor for failure, being cited in 81% of the projects as the number one problem."
      • [1] Agile and Iterative Development:
      • a Manager's Guide, Addison-Wesley Professional, 2003
  • Extreme Programming (XP)
    • As of 2007, about 12 years of growth
      • About 25% of new project are Agile
    • Set of SE practices that produce high-quality
    • software with limited effort
    • Many books, first by Kent Beck:
    • Extreme Programming–Embrace Change,
    • Addison-Wesley, 2000,
    • ISBN 0-201-61641-6
    • http://www. extremeprogramming .org/
  • Extreme Programming
    • XP is
      • a disciplined approach to software development
      • code centric: no reckless coding, test-first
      • successful because it emphasizes customer involvement and promotes team work
      • not a solution looking for a problem
      • One of several "agile" (can adapt to change) software development processes
        • http://www. agilealliance .org/
  • Essence of XP
    • Four variables in software development:
      • Cost, Time, Quality, Scope (# features)
    • Four Values
      • Communication, Simplicity, Feedback, Courage
    • Five Principles
      • Provide feedback, assume simplicity, make incremental changes, embrace change, quality work
    • Practices (or fewer, or more, or subject to change)
      • Planning game, small releases, simple designs, automated testing, continuous integration, refactoring, pair programming, collective ownership, Continuous Integration, on-site customer, coding standard
  • Cost of change Cost of change time Waterfall XP
  • Cost of the Project
    • Paraphrasing two companies from Agile 2007 (one is published)
      • When we bid projects, we charge x for doing it Waterfall and x / 2 for doing it Agile
  • Goal and Outline
    • Main Goal:
      • Suggest practices, values, and some process for completing a final project on time that is better than any one could do it in in four times the time.
    • Outline
      • Distinguish Waterfall (plan driven) from Agile
      • 11 Practices of quality software development to use on your final project
      • Four values of Extreme Programming (XP)
      • Process considerations adapted from Scrum
  • Practices: Planning Game
    • The planning game involves story cards, which are short descriptions of a feature
      • Provide value to customer
      • Independent of each other
      • Testable
    • Customer writes story cards and prioritizes them
    • Developers estimate how long a story takes
  • Practices: The planning game
    • Business decisions (customer)
      • Scope: which “stories” should be developed
      • Priority of stories (features)
      • Release dates
    • Technical decisions (developers)
      • Time estimates for features/stories
      • Elaborate consequences of business decisions
      • Team organization and process
      • Scheduling
  • Practices: Estimation
    • Based on similar stories from the past (“yesterday’s weather”)
    • Team effort
    • Get good at estimation simply by doing it
    • Ideal Engineering Time (IET)
      • could be points
    • Velocity = IET/Calendar Time
      • we can do 20 points each week
      • "Customer, which 20 points do you want next week?"
  • Practices: Small Releases
    • Releases should be as small as possible
    • Should make sense as a whole
    • Put system into production ASAP
      • Fast feedback
    • Deliver valuable features first
    • Short cycle time
      • Planning 1-2 months rather than 6-12 months
      • Or in our case, 1-2 weeks rather than 6 weeks
  • Practices: Simple design
    • The “right” design
      • Runs all tests
      • No code duplication, No code duplication
      • Fewest possible classes
      • Short methods
      • Fulfills all current business requirements
    • Design for today not the future
      • But design so the system can change
  • Practices: Testing
    • Software should be tested, but it is often spotty or overlooked
    • Automatic testing (JUnit, for example) help us know that a feature works and it will work after refactoring, additional code, and other changes
    • Provides confidence in the program
  • Testing
    • Write tests at the same time as production code
      • Unit tests  developer
      • Feature/acceptance tests  customer
    • Don't need a test for every method
    • Testing can be used to drive development and design of code
    • Allows for regression testing
      • Do changes break previously working code
  • SIM/SQS http://www.simgroup.com/Consultancy/regression.html
    • Regression Testing
      • re-testing of a previously tested program following modification to ensure that faults have not been introduced or uncovered as a result of changes.
      • Regression tests are designed for repeatability, and are often used when testing a second or later version of the system under test.
      • Regression testing can be carried out on all applications, including e-Commerce and web-based systems .
  • Testing
    • Strong emphasis on regression testing
      • Unit tests need to execute all the time
    • Unit tests pass 100%
    • Acceptance tests (we haven't seen these) show progress on which user stories are working
    • Other testing frameworks include
      • JMeter, HttpUnit, JProbe, OptimizeIt, CPPUnit
  • Can't unit test always
    • Won’t have unit tests for
      • GUIS: There are testing frameworks to simulate and test user interaction, but not this course
      • JPaint: Visual inspection, few unit tests
      • Randomness: Some strategies might have some randomness, which can be hard to work with
  • Practices: Refactoring
    • Restructure code without changing the functionality
    • Goal: Keep design simple
      • Change bad design when you find it
      • Remove dead code
    • Examples at Martin Fowler's Web site:
    • http://www.refactoring.com/ see online catalog
  • Practices: Pair programming
    • Write production code with 2 people on one machine
      • Person 1: Implements the method
      • Person 2: Thinks strategically about potential improvements, test cases, issues
    • Pairs change all the time. Has advantages such as
      • No single expert on any part of the system
      • Continuous code reviews, fewer defects
      • Cheaper in the long run, and more fun
    • Problems:
      • Not all people like it
      • Pairs need to be able to work together
  • Practices: Collective ownership
    • All code can be changed by anybody on the team
    • Everybody is required to improve any portion of bad code s/he sees
    • Everyone has responsibility for the system
    • Individual code ownership tends to create experts
  • Practices: Continuous integration
    • Integration happens after a few hours of development
    • Checkout build with your changes, Make sure all tests pass (green bar)
    • In case of errors:
      • Do not put changes into the build
      • Fix problems
    • Checkin the system to the common repository
    • Repeat
  • Continuous Integration
    • Find problems early
    • Can see if a change breaks the system more quickly -- while you remember the details
    • Small increments
  • Practices: Coding standards
    • Coding Standard
      • Naming conventions and style
      • Least amount of work possible: Code should exist once and only once
    • Team has to adopt a coding standard
      • Makes it easier to understand other people’s code
      • Avoids code changes because of syntactic preferences
  • Practices: On-site customer
    • Many software projects fail because they do not deliver software that meets business needs
    • Real customer has to be part of the team
      • Defines business needs
      • Answers questions and resolves issues
      • Prioritizes features

      • Distinguish Waterfall (plan driven) from Agile
      • 11 Practices of quality software development to use on your final project
      • Four values of Extreme Programming (XP)
      • Process considerations adapted from Scrum
  • Values: Communication
    • Communication
      • Customer centric (write "Stories")
      • Pair programming
      • Task estimation
      • Iteration planning
        • What to do in the next time period
        • May be weekly goals
      • Design sessions
    The Agile Manifesto
  • Values: Simplicity
    • Simplicity
      • Choose the simplest thing that will work
      • Choose the simplest design, technology, algorithm, technique
  • Values: Feedback
    • Feedback very important
      • Small Iterations
      • Frequent deliveries
      • Pair programming
      • Constant code review
      • Continuous integration (add often to the build)
      • automated unit tests (JUnit, for example)
  • Values: Feedback
    • Compiler feedback: seconds
    • Pair programming feedback: half minutes
    • Unit test feedback: few minutes
    • Acceptance testing: half hours
      • Customers write these, no can do in 335
    • Customer feedback: daily (or several times/week in our case)
    • Iteration feedback: weekly
    • FeedBack?
  • Agile Manifesto Manifesto for Agile Software Development We are uncovering better ways of developing software by doing it and helping others do it. Through this work we have come to value: Individuals and interactions over processes and tools Working software over comprehensive documentation Customer collaboration over contract negotiation Responding to change over following a plan That is, while there is value in the items on the right, we value the items on the left more.

  • 335 Final Project
    • SLs and Rick are the customers
      • JPaint: Mike and Marc
      • Risk: Will and Ivan
      • Networked Hearts: Mark and Rick
    • As customers, we reserve the right to change requirements :-)
  • Team
    • Class Meetings, every Tue until 27-Nov
      • All teams (4 or 7) meet with customers to clarify specs, changes, tech issues
      • Each week, ask these three Scrum Meeting Questions:
        • What have we done since our last meeting?
        • What impeded our work?
        • What will we before the next meeting?
      • More meetings/coding session preferred of course
  •  
  • A little Scrum
    • Scrum: A popular Agile Method. We'll use
      • Scrum meetings (mentioned on previous slide) today and the next four Tuesdays
      • Product Backlog
        • A document (a spreadsheet or table) in your repository that lists all functionality with estimates. Highest priorities on top. More later
      • Review Meetings
        • Each team will meet with their customer / grader (SLs)
          • Meeting 1: by 6-Nov
          • Meeting 2: by 20-Nov
  • Today
    • Start the Product Backlog which is "the master list of all functionality desired in the product. When a project is initiated there is no comprehensive, time-consuming effort to write down all foreseeable tasks or requirements. Typically, a project writes down everything obvious (…your team actually did that last week…). The Product Backlog is then allowed to grow and change as more is learned about the product and its customers." Mountain Goat Software
  • Deliverable due next week
    • Put a document into you repository that lists all functionality you can think of along with estimates in hours and who is responsible.
      • See example on next slide
    • Print a copy of this document to be turned in every Tuesday meeting.
      • It may not vary much, that's okay
      • This is an attempt to produce visibility
  •  
  • Today
    • All teams meet customers/graders by Project
      • Share discoveries, query the specs (we take role)
    • In individual teams
      • Draft the product Backlog, estimate, assign responsible people, schedule pair programming sessions and/or all team meetings/coding sessions
      • Ask these three questions
        • What have we done since our last meeting?
        • What impeded our work?
        • What will we before the next meeting?
