Agile Development with ICONIX Process: People, Process, and by Doug Rosenberg

By Doug Rosenberg

This booklet describes utilizing the ICONIX technique (an item modeling strategy) in an agile software program venture. to do that, the ebook defines a middle agile subset—so these of you who are looking to "get agile" don't need to spend years studying to do it. as an alternative, you could easily learn this ebook and practice the center subset of strategies. The e-book follows a real-life .NET/C# undertaking from inception and UML modeling, to operating code—through a number of iterations. you could then move online to match the completed product with the preliminary set of use instances.

Overview of Agile Modeling An agile modeler is anyone who models following the AM methodology, applying AM’s practices in accordance with its principles and values. An agile developer is someone who follows an agile approach to software development. An agile modeler is an agile developer. Not all agile developers are agile modelers. AM has three goals: • To define and show how to put into practice a collection of values, principles, and practices pertaining to effective, lightweight modeling. What makes AM a catalyst for improvement isn’t the modeling techniques themselves—such as use case models, robustness diagrams, sequence diagrams, or class diagrams—but how to apply them productively.

Can be expressed in use case terms) and that we must pay appropriate attention to these as well. Domain modeling enables us to get a grip on the fundamental way in which users perceive the “real world” and to build a system that meets this perception. Detailed class modeling helps us get more of our code right first time, reducing the need for unnecessary refactoring. Being inherently incremental, Agile ICONIX does this without throwing away the benefits of empirical feedback. You get more right the first time, but if you (or your customer) do get it wrong, you can improve the system in the next increment.

This in turn means that . . • With ICONIX Process, the design and the code don’t diverge over time. Instead, they converge, with the design model and the code becoming more in sync. For more about Agile ICONIX, see . . well, the book you’re reading at the moment. 21 22 CHAPTER 1 ■ WHAT IS AGILITY? ) ■Modeling Question Does this mean that you do all of your use cases, then go back and reanalyze the use cases, and then write all the code? Although we place a big emphasis on getting the requirements right up front, ICONIX Process isn’t by any means a “waterfall” process.
