Articles : Continuous Integration: An Agile Necessity
on 2010/10/25 3:01:59 (6180 reads)

Agile development is the future of modern software engineering.  Companies that have implemented it successfully have seen great improvements in their software—both in cost, stability, and in the utility of the software itself.  However, some companies have struggled, finding it difficult to adapt their processes and culture to work in an Agile environment.  One of the areas that best highlights the cultural shifts required to become an Agile organization is Continuous Integration (CI).

Now that Agile has established itself as the dominant new trend in software development, the number of books that deal with this topic is increasing every day.

Quotes : The Benefit of Self-Organizing Scrum Teams
on 2010/8/20 5:10:00 (2788 reads)

However, the benefit of allowing a team to self-organize isn't that  the team finds some optimal organization for their work that a manager may have missed. Rather, it is that by allowing the team to self-organize, they are encouraged to fully own the problem.

Quotes : Agile Software Development Adoption Obstacles
on 2010/5/31 10:33:34 (1891 reads)

"Perhaps you’ve read a book, on Extreme Programming and have decided that is the right approach for your company. Or maybe you attended a Certified ScrumMaster training course and think Scrum sounds good. Or maybe you read a book on a different agile process, and it sounds perfect for your organization.
