Scrum and Technical Practices :
- While technical practices aren’t specifically included as a part of Scrum, the rapid pace of development using Scrum often requires that good technical practices are utilized by Development Teams in order to be successful.
- As part of incremental development, Scrum puts quality before scope. Writing high-quality code is an art in itself. It requires skills, dedication, mastery, agreed practices, and agreed on standards.
Clean code :
- Software code that is expressed well, formatted correctly, and organized for later coders to understand.
- With Clean Code, Clarity is preferred over cleverness.
Clean Code features :
· Descriptive Function Names
· Small Functions
· Few Comments
· Few Arguments
· Single Responsibility Principle
· Necessary Code Only
Scout Rule :
- The practice of always leaving the code base in a little better state than it was found before modifications, is called the Scout Rule. Scout Rule is a mean to progress towards Clean Code.
Clean code principles and best practices :
- 1. common closure principal
- 2. single responsibility principal
- 3. decouple construction from runtime
Orphan Code :
- Orphan, dead or unreachable code is a code that will never be executed. It shows itself as variables that are declared but never used, functions that are never called, or code that is skipped because of a condition branch.
- Scrum Developers work toward company, development and organizational standards.
- Such standards provide guidance. The Developers decide on the actual implementation, thereby respecting the standards.
Common standards used during coding :
- Pointer and Reference Usage
- File Naming Convention
- Naming Convention (the benefit of establishing naming standards for code is that it makes the code more Readable)
- Formatting and Indentation
- Classes, Functions and Interfaces
- Comments and Documents
Feature Toogle :
- Software development practice that allows dynamically turning functionality on and off.
- Feature toggle doesn’t impact the overall accessibility of the system by users.
