What’s the Buzz Around "Agile?"
If you’ve set foot in the world of software you’ve probably heard the word "Agile" more times than you can count. You may have heard this word associated with constant collaboration, continuous delivery, releasing faster, adapting constantly, or any other "features of being Agile." It is clear that teams who are involved in all phases of the software development lifecycle are starting to adopt this "Agile" methodology as its increase in popularity continues to grow at a fast rate.
Earlier this year, over 5,000 professionals in Software Development, QA, and Testing responded to the SmartBear 2017 State of Software Testing Survey, and one of the most intriguing areas of the survey results was on this idea of being "Agile." Through this survey, we asked teams to categorize their development styles as either Agile, DevOps, Waterfall, Dependent on the Project, or Other and some results we found were expected while others were surprising.
