What Is Agile Programming?

Agile programming is an approach to project management, used in software development, which helps teams react to the instability of building software through incremental, iterative work cycles, known as sprints.

Why Agile Programming?

Agile programming gives teams repeated opportunities to assess the direction of a project throughout the entire development lifecycle. These chances for evaluation are built into the natural workflow of agile programming through regular cadences of work, known as sprints or iterations. At the end of every sprint, the team presents a functioning piece of software to the Product Owner for review. Because sprints repeat and the product continually adds increments of functionality, agile programming is described as “iterative” and “incremental.”

In agile programming every aspect of development is revisited throughout the lifecycle. There’s virtually no chance that a project will follow the wrong direction for very long. Because the team reassesses the direction of a project regularly, there’s always time to change course.
