XP Extreme Programming

XP Life Cycle

by Bjorn W.

Extreme Programming is a very successful agile process that works very well for many companies. Extreme Programming is the best because it keeps customer satisfaction as its top priority. It can keep making amendments according to the needs of your customers. It can push teams towards high achievable productivity. Extreme Programming is for managers who are trying to induce teamwork amongst their workforce. It improves the software working system because of its unique design of communication, simplicity, feedback, and response rate, rules, values, discipline. They exercise all of these functions to give high productivity to those accessing it. This programming system is of such importance, and thus the understanding of its life cycle is the very system.

XP Extreme Programming can work best when customer requirements are not dynamic in nature. Here we have four insignificant phases in its life sequence. They are named as -planning or implementing, drawing, coding experimenting, and listening. These phases are always on the lookout for solving problems and adhering to customer requirements, and also waits for customer provided feedback. It looks for the most minimal solution and solves issues without further ado.

Planning or implementing

This is the first phase of the programming cycle. Here the development or the core team interacts with the customer and their needs. Some iterations function in the planning and help to devise a complete full proof product. The core team also chalks out the time, cost, plan etcetera, to make the iterations happen.

Drawing or Designing

Now this core team gets ready to make changes to resurface more straightforward software to bring out patent problems and natural solutions for the following issues. Usage of simplicity is the core implication of this process, as they mention it only once and do not make it more complicated by reiterating the same thing multiple times.

Coding

This is most significant part of the extreme programming life cycle. Customer satisfaction is of their priority, and they believe in providing A class service to the ones obtaining it. Thus they codify and decode above any other activity. The most extraordinary feature of this process is that it asks two programmers to work from a single computer to provide better results. Working in groups can lead to better understanding of concepts, and better working.

Experimenting or Testing

The codes before being set out are tested on to check if there is any bug content. These tests are called unit tests. Customer significance is of paramount importance. That is why this system conducts a test to check if all the needs according to the customer customization is met, step by step. It also sets out demonstrations for better understanding.

Listening

This is the final process in the extreme programming system. This step is also called the feedback mechanism procedure. As the name has it, this phase listens to you. The programming receives feedback from two people, namely: the customer, and the manager of the project.

Thus these are all the phases that are involved in the life cycle. This will help in the growth of the company where it has been adapted it. The processes are simple, and anybody can have access to it with preliminary knowledge.
