Agile Software Development Automated by Blockchain Smart Contracts
- Software Testing
In this work we produced a prototype of framework where Scrum Agile Development is enhanced and automated by Smart Contracts deployed on an Ethereum blockchain testnet.
Product Owner duties are relieved and automated by the Solidity code into the Smart contracts.
Process workflow is transparent, fully recorded and accessible to authorized actors on the blockchain.
