Agile Software Factory
Created in 2008 by Dr. Joseph Chao, the ASF actively engages the community, locates partners for student projects, and fosters corporate cooperation to cultivate the skills students need to excel in industry. The ASF, with a grant from the Agile Alliance and sponsorship from BGSU Information Technology Services and the Department of Computer Science, is the first program to integrate agile methods into higher-education curriculum and has been featured in a number of information technology publications.
