Adopting an Agile Community of Practice

Feb 16, 2017 | by Dennis Corpman, Senior Software Engineer | Tags: Agile

How well do you remember who spoke, or what they spoke of when you graduated from high school or college? While I can’t recall who spoke or the title of their speech, I do recall from my undergraduate college graduation that the speaker was trying to drive the point home that to be successful in life we must be constantly learning, expanding our knowledge beyond our current capacity.

As many mobile apps contain as much or more presentation logic as business logic, this makes much more sense as a cross-platform solution.
