Scrum enables the Evo software engineering team to produce dynamic, high-quality products and tools in a manner that is consistent with the ever-evolving business needs of ATS customers and business partners. The following is a brief overview of Scrum.
According to the Scrum Alliance, Scrum is a simple, yet incredibly powerful, set of principles and practices that help teams deliver products in short cycles, enabling fast feedback, continuous improvement, and rapid adaptation to change. Scrum is an Agile framework for completing complex projects. Scrum originally was formalized for software development projects, but it works well for any complex, innovative scope of work. The possibilities are endless. The Scrum framework is deceptively simple.
EVO software development teams strictly adhere to source control and configuration management best practices in an Agile Scrum development methodology. The development teams utilize Git, Bitbucket, and SourceTree for source control. Source code branches are managed in several application environments, including local, testing, staging, demo, user acceptance testing (UAT), and production. Code changes are required to undergo unit testing and end-to-end testing prior to a developer creating a pull request. Code promotion through the upper-level environments is handled by senior development staff, after a thorough code review process. Detailed release notes are included with code promotion to each upper-level environment.
EVO utilizes top-rated, open source mobile Software Development Kits (SDKs) and frameworks to develop native and progressive web applications. We deliver highly functional mobile applications with standard features that users expect, as well as next-generation technologies and integration points, such as segmented notifications, geo-tracking, location-sensing, offline data sync, and more.
