Accelerate your team to Warp Speed
With the Parallel Agile® Hyperdrive 5-day training class
One of our expert Parallel Agile® consultants will visit your location and help you get your project off to a flying start. At the end of a week, you will have a working instance of Mongo DB with a Node JS API (documented in Swagger), along with a mix of working prototypes and production-ready code along with a detailed UML model including requirements, use cases, MVC decompositions, sequence diagrams, and test cases.
Who will benefit?
Developers, Development Managers, and technical executives
Knowledge of UML modeling, agile methods, and Node.js is helpful but not required
  • At the end of the week, you will have
  • MongoDB database
  • Node JS API
  • Swagger docs
  • Working prototypes
  • Production-ready code
  • UML model
    • requirements
    • sprint plan (epics, stories, tasks)
    • use cases
    • MVC decompositions
    • sequence diagrams
Generate Database and API from Domain Model.
On the first day of class, you'll experience the power of the Parallel Agile CodeBot™ - a domain driven code generator that turns your Domain Model into an Executable Architecture. We'll spend a couple of hours brainstorming the domain model and then transform it into a working database (Mongo) with all database access functions code generated and wrapped in a Node JS API. API docs are automatically generated in Swagger as well as some client-side sample code in JavaScript, Java, Swift, and C#. And then it's almost lunchtime.

In the afternoon you'll identify User Stories, Epics, and Tasks and develop a visual model sprint plan using the Parallel Agile® Add-In for Enterprise Architect. You'll also develop a Use Case model. Then you'll allocate the development tasks to students and begin prototyping against the new API which can be hosted on AWS or on the cloud-server of your choice.
You'll come in Tuesday morning wondering whether that API that got generated yesterday really works, and energized when you start prototyping and discover that it does. When you prototype you're free to focus on sunny-day scenarios without the need for unit testing so you'll find that progress is rapid. Stakeholders can interact with your prototypes and feed you with more specific requirements.
Model Requirements and MVC Conceptual Designs.
On Wednesday morning you'll flesh out the functional requirements model of your system along with developing a detailed set of behavior requirements in the form of a detailed use case model with each use case defined in terms of its Models, Views, and Controllers. These behavior models will consider all of the rainy-day scenarios, corner cases, and edge cases that you got to skip when you were prototyping. All of this modeling work is done in parallel so you'll get a lot done in a day.

On Wednesday afternoon you'll update the domain model to reflect the feedback gained from the prototyping, and re-generate the database, API, and API docs.
Detailed Design and Coding.
On Thursday you can do as much detailed design as needed using UML techniques like sequence diagrams and state machines, and when you're ready to start coding against the updated API. If you like to code unit tests, feel free to do that as well. Because the REST API is client-language neutral, you can develop in the languages of your choice.
Acceptance Testing.
If you were wondering why you modeled rainy-day scenarios on Wednesday and coded them on Thursday it's because on Friday you get to generate a set of acceptance test scripts that have been generated and give them to your QA department. You'll follow the Design Driven Testing process and use the ICONIX/Agile DDT add-in from Sparx Systems.
