wise words for the agile programmer
Wed, Oct 21, 2009
You know what it’s like. The fan is clogged, agile has gone out the window, the phone is ringing off the hook. “Where is that feature?, you’d better have it ready or else… Our users don’t give a hoot about Agile this, XP that, I just need that feature NOW!“. The mess filters down the teflon chain until it lands with a wet slap on your head. Well, next time it happens, read these wise words before you do your rounds of your fellow developers. Combined with Hanlon’s Razor, a mug of strong real coffee and a world weary expression, you have a small toolkit to deal with most situations.
