AIS - Best Practices & Skillset

The AIS solution methodologies and quick development cycles require a broad skillset. Within our current staff we use and subscribe to the following languages and methodologies.

Agile - defines smart business and software development methodologies based on iterative and incremental development, where requirements and solutions evolve through collaboration between self-organizing, cross-functional teams. We embrace a set of practices that emphasize the collaboration and communication of both software developers and information technology (IT) professionals while automating the process of software delivery and infrastructure changes. We aim to establishing a culture and environment where buildingtesting, and releasingsoftware can happen rapidly, frequently, and more reliably.

CSS (Cascading Style Sheets) - a style sheet language used to describe the presentation semantics (the look and formatting) of a document written in a markup language.

Documentation - is critical in our environment.  To ensure stability to the University and security for our clients, and as an operational standard we document within our code and maintain documentation on systems built, services offered,  involved resources and dependent systems.
