EdTech Chicago Meetup: Karl Hughes and Incremental Software
Wednesday, July 12, 2017 6pm
Join us for an exciting night of conversation and networking for Chicago’s first EdTech meetup! Come with questions, stay for the refreshments.
For July’s Meetup, we will be hearing from Karl Hughes who is the CTO at The Graide Network, an early stage EdTech startup helping teachers get help with grading written assignments by hooking them up with virtual teaching assistants who are college students.
Karl will be talking about Incremental Software Development.
Software is never planned, built, and then left alone. The software we build is a constantly-changing body of work that needs to be useable and working every step of the way.
Incremental software development is a way of thinking. Applications are really groups of smaller modules and the individual pieces will be traded out over time as the application grows.
In this talk, you’ll see:
Illustrations of how real projects at startups have grown and evolved as the business found its footing. How to test and design applications to ensure successful integrations between new and old pieces of an evolving codebase. Considerations for engineers and project managers who work on evolving or growing projects.
