Agile is a set of principles and values for software development that emphasises collaboration, flexibility, and delivering working software iteratively and incrementally.

The agile methodology is gaining increasing popularity in the software development community, and many organisations are adopting agile practices to improve their development process.

In this session we cover the latest trends and best practices in agile software development. We discuss the importance of working effectively in cross-functional teams, and how to communicate and collaborate with stakeholders to ensure that the software being developed meets their needs. We will also cover the importance of feedback, and how to use metrics and data to measure the success of your agile practices. We will also cover the agile manifesto, which outlines the key principles of the agile methodology. Attendees will learn about the importance of customer satisfaction, delivering working software, and embracing change. We will also touch upon scrum and Kanban.
