Agile software development is one of the most popular development methodologies, especially in the United States. Its basic principles focus on teamwork and flexibility.
Focuses on resolving customer pain points by developing to an MVP (minimum viable product) early on, frequently receiving feedback from end-users to gain valuable insight to incorporate changes before development is too far along . This reduces risk, saving time and money.
In order for all iterations to be well documented with all the necessary data, it is essential that the QA or person in charge keep track of the code and test cases. It should also not be forgotten that this recurring test to be done is the subject of rapid and iterative development subcategory based on agile software development.
An agile software development team is typically comprised of a product owner, team leader, developers, stakeholders, and other members as needed such as UI/UX designer.
It is the person who represents the stakeholders in the project: the clients in this case. His responsibility is to supervise and direct the progress of the development of the project. The person in this role must clearly understand the needs of the customers and possess the communication skills to meet with the developer team and explain everything that is needed from the application or website.
In this role, the person ensures the coordination of the entire team, maintains fluid communication between all parties and that tasks are carried out within the stipulated times and in an appropriate manner. He is in constant communication with the product owner.
Among his duties are: facilitating daily initiatives, communication between team members, handling administrative tasks, helping team members when a blockage or interference occurs.
The members of this team are all individuals who have responsibilities within the design and direct creation of the product, although it is not limited to this. They take responsibility for turning the initial idea into something tangible, at least one person on the team must have knowledge of coding, product design, programming, user interface design, and product testing.
Not all members need to be software engineers, but they can be part of the team if their skills are required to keep the project moving at the required pace.
