The glass half-empty view of software development is that we are engaged in a back-and-forth tug of war by building better software only to find out the world has produced a better idiot. Besides the end-users it should be noted that the “idiots” in question often include us. Join me while I share a refreshingly candid series of missteps and lapses in judgements all of which lead me toward IT-enlightenment.
Over the lunch hour I’ll briefly share the history of GForge and many of the common dilemmas we all face. Is it truly faster to rewrite that legacy system? How will we decide what features make it into the next release? Is TDD really worth it? How do you go from little-to-no automation to continuous integration and deployment? How can a small company provide support and collect customer feedback without impacting overall velocity?
Join me this Friday where we’ll discuss all this including the age-old question, “WTF is Agile?”
