SAFe® Agile Software Engineering helps technical members of an Agile team deliver high-quality solutions, faster, more predictably, and more collaboratively. Discover how to enable a continuous flow of value delivery and built-in quality via modern, proven practices including eXtreme programming (XP), behaviour-driven development (BDD), and test-driven development (TDD). Learn proven practices to detail, model, design, implement, verify, and validate stories in a SAFe Continuous Delivery Pipeline—which represents the necessary workflows, activities, and automation to move a new piece of functionality from ideation to delivery. Technical members of an Agile team will learn the practices that build quality into code and designs, as well as their roles in collaborating on backlogs, architecture, and DevOps.
