IJAESD covers the field of agile/extreme programming. Agile methodologies try to reduce risk by developing software in small iterations, each of which releases a new functionality. This methodology provides a pragmatic way of adapting to changing requirements at any point during the lifecycle of a software project. Agile methodologies have drawn significant attention in the software industry in recent years, and are also moving into new industries, such as embedded systems, safety-critical products and other complex development environments.


 Topics covered include

  • Foundations for agile methods
  • Agile software development tools, agile and cloud computing synergy
  • Agile development in the large scale including scalability issues
  • Agile development with large/legacy systems
  • Agile development of open source software
  • Integrating business processes and agile SW development
  • Commitment, motivation, culture in agile SW development organisations
  • Case studies, experiments, practitioners' experience reports
  • Metrics in agile SW development, automated metrics and analysis
  • Research on existing or new methodologies/approaches
  • Agile methods in industrial contexts
  • Good practice, test-driven development as an agile practice
  • Integration of hard requirements in agile processes
  • Quantitative/qualitative empirical studies
  • Tools and applications
