Kanban, a concept created within Toyota’s Japanese production and manufacturing plant, oddly enough, has been a system that has gone on to take the world by storm. The Kanban card system allows “just in time” tasking; and is comprised of a board made up of cards that are moved along in a left to right fashion. Kanban is a system often utilized in Agile teams to help keep track of software development work, and ensure everyone in the team stays on the same page.
Do you have a task to achieve? There’s an app for that. Kanban software is now widely used in both businesses as well as in people’s personal lives. However, some of these software products are better than others - as is the case with any type of app! Today we outline our top picks for 2020.
Software testing is an essential activity in the software development process. Without testing, you’ll end up with a buggy product that doesn’t do what it’s supposed to do - a lemon. Black box testing and white box testing are two different types of software testing strategies, that are equally powerful, and even better when combined.
Not all software houses work the same way. The processes, tools, and workflows that go on behind the scenes can vary wildly - and a lot of that comes down to the software development methodology they practice. Agile, Waterfall, Spotify - they’re all different ways of working to build a piece of software, each with its own pros and cons, as well as best-fit projects.
MVP isn’t just an acronym for Most Valuable Player. It’s also a term used often in the software world: Minimum Viable Product. What is an MVP? Well, in a nutshell, it’s the bare bones piece of software that fits its essential purpose. For example, for a music player app, a screen with a big fat play button that plays all the songs in your Music folder. It’s a starter software to the bigger picture!
You have a million dollar app idea. But you don’t have a million dollars to get it off the ground. How can you put together something professional looking to see if others would be interested - if you don’t have any design skills?
Fixed price contracts can be rather tricky in a Scrum environment. Classic software development and Agile software development are very different from one another, and things that work in one environment don’t necessarily work in another.
