Fasilkom UI Agile Coaching Session

With the lecturer

A great news comes from my college (Faculty of Computer Science, Universitas Indonesia): one of their courses, software project developent (PPL), will using agile rather than old methodology (Waterfall).


It’s such a great news, since i realized, when join in industry, especially in startup ecosystem, we mostly using agile process. Why? because we usually work with uncertainty problem that sometimes easier to be handled using empirical approach rather than planned upfront approach. And agile process usually missed or didn’t get enough attention inside the courses. I remember it only contained in software engineering course, mostly theory, without any practical lesson. So, me (during that time) should learn from external resources :(. But that’s okay, as a student, there’s no boundaries to learn since there’s an internet isn’t it?.

So, a week ago, Rizky (also a founder of Agile Campus) tell me that Pak Ade Azurat (PPL lecturer) needs help to coach his students. This coaching session has a purpose to make sure all students have basic understanding of agile before they jump into the practical development. Of course it will be YES for me for the invitation!.

Then, here it is:

This coaching session basically only covered basic Scrum, included all inside Scrum guide and a little bit best practices (see some my experiment in Scrum and agile process here). Below are some best practice we share:

Thank you so much Pak Ade, Kak Maya, Pak Adin, & Rizky for the opportunity. It’s an honor to share and also learn from you guys and all Fasilkom students.

Thank you for making one of my bucket list checked: become a guest lecturer.

It’s a wrap!
