This presentation will use multimedia and scripted theater to illustrate a typical development iteration as practiced by the apprentices of the NMHU Software Development Apprenticeship Program. Seven students and one faculty member will conduct a thirty-minute Scrum sprint using minutes instead of days or hours as our unit of measure. By sharing our insights into overcoming the disruptions, distractions, and impediments of the academic environment, we hope to convey ideas that will be useful to all professional software developers and educators who must respond to the challenge of teaching and experiencing agile software development techniques in an "inhospitable" environment.
