#TestCulture ๐Ÿฆ… Episode 17 โ€“ Agile dictionary

Here are some notions to master to understand Agile methods. Do you have other vocabulary words to share?

๐๐จ-๐œ๐จ๐๐ž ๐ญ๐ž๐ฌ๐ญ ๐š๐ฎ๐ญ๐จ๐ฆ๐š๐ญ๐ข๐จ๐ง: process that runs on automated tests. It reduces the amount of time and cost used by manual testing.

๐ƒ๐ž๐ฏ๐Ž๐ฉ๐ฌ: multidisciplinary approach that combines software development and IT operations. Helps to create a more agile work process.

๐€๐ ๐ข๐ฅ๐ž: iterative approach to project management and software development. An agile team delivers work in small, but consumable.

๐‚๐จ๐ง๐ญ๐ข๐ง๐ฎ๐จ๐ฎ๐ฌ ๐ญ๐ž๐ฌ๐ญ๐ข๐ง๐ : approach that encourages testing as early as possible. It is a guarantee of stability and non-regression.

๐–๐ˆ๐ (๐–๐จ๐ซ๐ค ๐ข๐ง ๐๐ซ๐จ๐ ๐ซ๐ž๐ฌ๐ฌ): commonly used concept in agility. It consists in limiting the number of jobs in progress in order to ensure the quantity of work delivered to the customer.

๐’๐œ๐ซ๐ฎ๐ฆ: a framework for project management, with an initial emphasis on software development, that is a lightweight, iterative and incremental framework for developing, delivering, and sustaining complex products.

๐๐š๐œ๐ค๐ฅ๐จ๐ : changing list of product requirements based on the customerโ€™s needs. The backlog is not a to-do list; rather, it is a list of all the desired features for the product.

๐”๐ฌ๐ž๐ซ ๐’๐ญ๐จ๐ซ๐ฒ: brief, non-technical description of a software system requirement written from the customerโ€™s or end-userโ€™s point of view.

๐ˆ๐ญ๐ž๐ซ๐š๐ญ๐ข๐จ๐ง: a fixed or timeboxed period of time, generally spanning two to four weeks, during which an Agile team develops a deliverable, potentially shippable product. A typical Agile project consists of a series of iterations, along with a planning meeting prior to development and a retrospective meeting at the end of the iteration.
