This ebook comprises the refereed complaints of the fifteenth foreign convention on Agile software program improvement, XP 2014, held in Rome, Italy, in might 2014.
Because of the large software of agile techniques in undefined, the necessity for collaboration among teachers and practitioners has elevated to be able to enhance the physique of information to be had to help managers, approach engineers, and software program engineers of their managerial/economic and architectural/project/technical judgements. yr after yr, the XP convention has facilitated such advancements and supplied proof at the merits of agile methodologies by means of interpreting the newest theories, sensible functions, and implications of agile and lean methods.
The 15 complete papers, seven brief papers, and 4 adventure experiences accredited for XP 2014 have been chosen from fifty nine submissions and are prepared in sections on: agile improvement, agile demanding situations and contracting, classes realized and agile adulthood, find out how to evolve software program engineering educating, equipment and metrics, and lean development.

The participants to this quantity study concerns raised by way of the intersection of latest communications applied sciences and public coverage during this post-boom, post-bust period. initially offered on the thirtieth study convention on verbal exchange, details, and net coverage (TPRC 2002)--traditionally a exhibit for the simplest educational examine in this topic--their paintings combines difficult information and deep research to discover the dynamic interaction among technological improvement and society.
The idea that of hugely built-in and IT-supported provide chains, which are summed up by means of the time period built-in company Reporting, has more and more moved into the foreground of analysis curiosity. present discussions at the development of intra-enterprise and extra-enterprise reporting techniques can't be learned with out a transparent and uniform description of the weather concerned.
Wisdom is more and more considered as critical, either to the profitable functioning of companies and to their strategic course. handling details and data in corporations explores the character and position of data in modern firms, paying specific recognition to the administration of data and knowledge and to the an important allowing function performed via details and communique know-how.

Similar to the previous analysis, we are 95% sure that no more than 25% of development teams have implemented pair programming. This is in agreement with previous studies. The next lowest, at no more than 27%, is that agile teams have no manual testing at the end of each iteration. This may be due to the large number of web applications requiring multiple browser version testing. Table 8. Least popular practices CA Statement % Positive 95% upper limit Agile Principle Code is written using pair-programming.
The CA tool assesses a team’s agility and project outcomes using a 65-statement Likert survey. Results: The agile principle of respect for individuals occurs the most frequently, while simplicity occurs least. Progress/Planning is correlated strongly to nine principles. Conclusion: Subject to sampling issues, successful teams report more positive results for agile practices with the most important practice being teams knowing their velocity. Keywords: agile software development, comparative agility assessment, agile practices.
Agile processes promote sustainable development. The sponsors, developers, and users should be able to maintain a constant pace indeﬁnitely. Continuous attention to technical excellence and good design enhances agility. Balance between simplicity – the art of maximizing the amount of work not done in a short term – and generality – the art of minimizing the total amount of work to be done in a long term – is essential. The best architectures, requirements, and designs emerge from cooperating and self-organizing teams.
