About This Seminar

 Rapid Application Development (RAD) is becoming the most prevalent 
 method of systems development, and RAD has evolved dramatically in recent
 years. This seminar moves beyond basic RAD approaches and introduces   
 some of the latest and best practices in systems development today.

 What's Happening

 Today's applications require short development cycles and interaction with 
 customers throughout. Requirements-gathering is ongoing and reflects the 
 realities of constant changes in technology and market demands. RAD was 
 just the tip of the iceberg. Today, Adaptive Development, Extreme 
 Programming (XP), Refactoring and other RADical departures from traditional 
 waterfall methodologies are essential to the success of software 
 development. Change is not only inevitable but desirable as well, and this 
 seminar is designed to help you leverage change to produce high-quality 
 systems that are customer and market driven.

 What Makes This Seminar Unique

 This seminars centers around the essential methods, and skills required to 
 achieve successful implementation of software products designed to meet 
 the ever-evolving requirements of customers in today's volatile technology 
 and market environments. Rapid application development today looks very 
 different from the early days of client server. Through exercises, case 
 studies, and an off-line mini-lab simulation, participants will be able to 
 experience the "do's, don'ts, and gotcha's" of working in the RAD 
 development. In addition participants will learn the latest and best current 
 thinking about RAD and other adaptive development processes.
