Virtual Tour of an Embedded Agile Team

Embedded systems development holds challenges that include software tightly coupled to evolving hardware, an end customer who usually cannot interact with you, and a long period of infrastructure building before any business-value features are built. These challenges have convinced many embedded developers that Agile is not for them. This presentation takes you on a virtual tour of an actual Agile team developing software and firmware for a safety-critical embedded system. We follow their first iteration. We’ll look at what worked and what didn’t, and how everyone dealt with it. By this virtual visit, Nancy explains how “plain vanilla” Agile practices leave a gap that embedded developers find especially hard to bridge – and also the Embedded Agile practices that solve the problem. Agile principles need not be watered down or compromised when you are faced with the challenges of embedded systems development. On the contrary, they truly shine in complex situations where there is too much uncertainty for sequential processes to work well.
