The Agile Manifesto establishes 12 principles for Agile software development. Most software that has a dependency on another software inherits its Agile features—and in this article, we will explore what makes Apache Kafka suitable for Agile software development.
As the Agile environment has efficient principles that allow quick responses to changes and the ability to deal with uncertainty, exploratory testing may seem like a perfect match for such projects. However, this is only partially true. In reality, diverse reasons impede its usage in Agile projects, and companies should take them into account before designing QA strategies.
Agile software development emphasizes continuous delivery of valuable software, simplicity, working software, customer collaboration, responding to change, and welcoming changing requirements. In this article, we shall discuss how Apache Hadoop (one of the top open-source projects)-based software fulfills Agile software development principles.
One of the Agile principles is simplicity—the art of maximizing the amount of work not done is essential. Kubernetes provides simplicity through different features based on the Single Responsibility Principle for decoupling, and through automating tasks such scaling, resource allocation, and making updates.
While a few other types of containers are available, Docker is the de facto standard for containerization. Containerization involves running multiple applications in containers on a Docker Engine that runs on an underlying operating system. The principles of Agile software emphasize simplicity, interactions among individuals, working software, customer collaboration, and responsiveness to change. Docker containers make all of these feasible.
The purpose of CI/CD security goes beyond identifying and remediating vulnerabilities—it also emphasizes keeping pace with other CI/CD processes. A secure CI/CD pipeline allows teams to find and fix issues without disrupting the overall CI/CD flow, achieving security without delaying or rolling back software releases.
For software companies and developers, keeping up with the trends means offering state-of-the-art software products and establishing themselves as innovation leaders. Enterprises and businesses will, on the other hand, have to decide between purchasing an existing software solution or cashing in for a customized product tailored to their needs.
Value Stream Mapping is a powerful lean tool that is commonly used in Agile and DevOps implementations as a foundation for continuous improvement and transformation, but its application doesn’t always lead to the expected or desired result. Author Jeff Pierce's article helps you to avoid some of the most common failings companies encounter when they try to implement it.
