I have problems in describing the Development Process of my project.
I'm doing my internship in an enterprise as an Information Systems designer and Java EE developer, for graduation. I need to talk about the development process and the project organisation in my report.
I asked my boss about the development process they are performing in the enterprise and he confirmed to me that it is Scrum.
My subject is about Intranet. We have started by the most complex module in the intranet. The expected period of time to finish it is 5 months. After we finish this module we start another one.
So during these 5 months, we are expecting to specify the requirements of the module, to design an Information System which satisfy the requirements, to design a software architecture, to develop then integrate then test then validate, and then to move to another module. These steps make me feel that we have used the V-Cycle described here.
However, we have been doing Scrum practises such as doing a daily follow-up between the Scrum Team and the Scrum Master ( what have you done yesterday? have u got any difficulties? what will you do today?... ) during a meeting of 5 minutes. We are a team of 3 persons, we have a Scrum Master, and 2 Product Owners.
I talked to my boss and he said he will divide 5 months into sprints of 2 or 3 weeks ( a sprint of designing, a sprint of implementing a working prototype...,.., a sprint of testing ).
However, what I learnt at my college is that every sprint gives us a version, a product which we can use but that we need to improve.
Sorry for this long text, but I needed to make you in my context to be able to help me in describing the development process of this project. Thank you a lot!
Could these be Sprints?
- Gathering Requirements
- Information Systems Design
- Defining the Software Architecture
