Skip to 0 minutes and 2 secondsI'm so glad we're able to do this course together. You've learned what's hard about developing really good software. It's important to get that on the board. We looked at how to use Agile to improve on that. You've learned how to go out and really investigate what's valuable to customers, or users. And you've learned how to do that in a practical way where you can get started small, and see how it goes. The hardest part is getting started. And you've also learned how to take all that and encapsulate it in user stories that are vivid, that have testable rewards, that are discussable with your team. And you've learned how to weave that into prototyping and testing.
