The Agile Austin U Foundations Course is an 8 week night course that is free to our community. The intent is to introduce the core concepts of agile, Scrum, Lean Software and Kanban. There will be two volunteer instructors for each class and dinner will be provided. Proof of Attendance will be provided for those interested in claiming PDU’s. The full schedule can be found at

So far our journey in learning about agile has focused on communication, collaboration, planning, and people to effectively build products. We have highlighted the importance of feedback loops, learning, and improvement. We will now turn our attention to the technical practices that allow us to both embrace and minimize the cost of change.

In this final session we will look at the fundamental practices technical teams use to avoid hitting the wall. We will cover Test-Driven Development (TDD), Refactoring, Continuous Integration/Delivery, Emergent Design, Technical Debt, and Collective Ownership and what everyone involved in product delivery should understand about these practices.
