The Agile Method in Software Development Processes

The world of Information Technology recognizes several differences between the waterfall and the agile methods of application development. Waterfall development processes which have been used for ages by IT companies tend to have distinct phases: start, analyze, plan, design, develop or build, test, and then close. For this reason, the waterfall method is often called the “phased” approach. Not too long ago, the new method, agile, has been properly recognized as a better technique in software development. And since then, agile training courses have been sprouting like mushrooms to cater to the growing interest of the public.

The agile or iterative method that individuals can learn from agile training sessions involves a sequence of phases that repeats itself over and over again throughout the course of the project development. Of course, initial planning just like in waterfall methods should still be done. But in agile projects, the entire team will have to cycle through the phases of requirements, analysis, design, implementation, testing, evaluation and then back to the planning phase. The phases will be repeated several times until the team finally achieves the desired solution, at which point the development process will move on to production and deployment. In agile processes, great emphasis is placed on individuals on the project team. Each team member is encouraged to share their ideas and play their part in the brainstorming sessions.

Agile methods also emphasizes on collaborating with business owners or clients to produce a working deliverable and in order to respond quickly to necessary changes to requirements, system functions, application features and goals.

Obake, Elastic Touch Screen For the Future

touch screenAlmost all of today’s mobile devices bring a touch screen (touch screen) on a flat surface. But, now for the first time present on-screen touch screen which is a project elastic Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) Media Lab. The goal is to produce different sensations on the touch screen mobile devices.Touch screen project called Obake was created by two MIT Media Lab researchers that Dhairya Dand and Rob Hemsley. This screen lets you pull the elastic surface.

When you pull the screen, the camera on the screen depth gauges will measure your movements and linear actuator informed of any given touch. Obake screen 2.5D technology that brings 3D screen surface so you can pull it, but the service is still using the 2D interface. Dand start the reasons why the display cannot be separated from the realm of 2D because there are many people who use a combination of mouse and GUI standards. This led them to develop 2.5D elastic surface, because the eyes of users already familiar with the resulting movement.

Dand imagine this application can also be applied in some other applications on the new technology. Currently, Obake can recognize the hand of small gestures such as pinch and poke to push both fields simultaneously elastic surface. However Obake is still in the development stage of completion. So that, in the near future this elastic touch screen cannot be applied in Smartphone. But Dand ensure that in the future, Obake can be applied across multiple devices for mapping or a particular game.
