Agile Development

I know it's a pretty hot buzzword these days, but that doesn't change the fact that there's a lot of good thinking behind Agile Development. At GenoLogics we are working at applying these principles to change how we develop software.

Before I go any further I need to state that I'm not the person who brought Agile Development to GenoLogics; the transition away from traditional waterfall development was happening before I arrived. However, as Software Development Manager, and as a believer in Agile Development, I've taken it upon myself to continue what was started.

So what are we doing at GenoLogics? I plan to answer that question over the next few weeks as I document our process, the changes we've undergone, and the challenges we still face. Stay tuned.
