Exploring the Practical Project Management for Software Development

About the Topic:

Let’s face it, at the end of the day all the client really wants is an application that works. Nowadays it is so easy to get bogged down in cumbersome development methodologies and standards that we lose sight of that fact. Join us in an exploration of various Application Lifecycle Management (ALM) tools and techniques and gain valuable insight into processes that can help make your team more efficient. Also learn to identify unnecessary processes that hinder your ability to deliver quality software, on time, and within your budget.
