This article, "My Greatest Misses: XP 2000-2007", is an honest experience report on the many issues and failures met by Joe Rainsberger as an agile change agent during these years, trying to teach others the merit of the extreme programming approach created by Kent Beck.

Articles : Using Customer Tests to Drive Development

Like many agile software development teams, our team writes tests for each feature before the feature is actually developed. We’ve found many advantages to using tests to drive development, not only at the unit test level but at the functional, system and acceptance test levels. Not only do we have tests which show whether we’ve delivered the correct functionality, but we benefit from increased communication and collaboration, increasing the chances that we will deliver exactly what our customers want. Writing just the right amount of tests and level of detail has proved difficult at times, as has the automation and timing of the automation effort. The effort to overcome those problems has paid off and led us to devote even more resources to driving development with customer tests.

Articles : Agile Requirements

Articles

In the last few years, the agile software development movement has created a paradigm shift in how we work to understand system requirements. Agile teams shape software systems using a collaborative process, with executable software at its heart and documents marginalised to a peripheral role. This creates a fundamental shift away from tools for managing requirements artefacts. Instead, we need tools that support collaboration and the gradual distillation of business rules into automated test suites.

Quotes : Fire your best people…reward the “lazy” ones

In my experience, what most people consider to be their “best” people are often the root of most problems. It’s the difference between troubleshooters and troublepreventors.
