Postmodern Agile: A Story of Collaborating Beyond Buzzwords (22-Jun-2018)

Some articles seem slightly embarrassing to me after I see them published. I thought this might be one, but I think the point should be well-taken: we’re way too invested in dogmatic process trappings. This blog post for Ranorex tells the story of a day in a life where we don’t talk about a process, we just live it, with the singular goal of delivering high-quality software frequently.

What Are We Building?

Requirements, requirements. There are few things worse to me as a developer than having to guess what I’m supposed to build. I’m currently in a shop where we get high level requirements from an end customer, but the details are left to us.

–“Should this have a default, Bill?”
–“I dunno, what do you think, Jeff?”
–“I dunno, what do you wanna do, Marty?”

Ugh. It’s a huge comfort to have someone take the time to find out what we should really be building.
