Agile@School 2017 – This is the end

All the good things come to an end, right? And this is true also for Agile@School 2017. However, no worries, although I’m becoming a dad, I’m pretty sure I’ll keep making the students more aware of the Agile principles and practices. There are only good news, to be honest. The first one is that Michele […]

Agile@School 2017 – let’s start over

As a recurring project, Agile@School is started again on February, with a new set of projects and ideas. Gabriele will help me again, but it will be a very difficult task. During the past year we followed a Scrum approach, in order to comply the team structure. As you can read here, there were one team […]

Agile@School – 7th episode

In the 6th episode’s post we’ve spoken about the concept of “sprint failure” and “start again with a new spirit”. Now I can say that we have reached our goals and the application is up and running, ready to be shown during the exam sessions. We are proud to introduce online Students’ Yearbook! In this episode […]

Agile@School – episode 5

It’s time to review the work done. The web application the students are working on is reaching its end, speaking about development. It’s not so good to see, we know it, but starting from this sprint, we will apply some graphical stuff and we’ll be ready to present the tool to the “board”. By the way, […]

Agile@School – episode 4

The sprint 2 was completed successfully. This is a great news and when I’ve heard that sentence, I was very happy with my “class”. Yes, we miss something, but the software package is working, and not just in one client. A month ago, I left the students with a list of 5 PBIs, and they presented me the […]

Agile@School – episode 3

Agile@School project is growing and finally we’re reaching the most important part of the iteration. In this third episode we played the planning poker game on a round table (which appears like a poker session at a first sight actually 🙂 ) and the students decided to skip the coffee break! You know how is really difficult […]

Agile@School – episode 2

In this post, we’ve introduced the Agile@School project, a new way for managing school projects. The second “episode” I’ve added an actor, Gabriele, a student which will be the scrum master. We’ve achieved the real number of team members, which is 9 and we’ve understood also the interests of each member. The final goal is to create a team […]

Agile@School – A new way for managing school projects

Last Saturday, I’ve shown the Agile@School project at ITSOS Fornovo Taro, the school in which I’ve studied for five years, just before starting to work as a junior developer. ITSOS has been (and this is true right now) at the forefront of computer technology and now, thanks to the new “technology course”, the project becomes really interesting. During the […]
