Manifesto for Half-Arsed Agile Software Development

We have heard about new ways of developing software by paying consultants and reading Gartner reports. Through this we have been told to value:

Individuals and interactions
over processes and tools

and we have mandatory processes and tools to
control how those individuals (we prefer the term ‘resources’) interact

Working software
over comprehensive documentation

as long as that software is comprehensively
documented


Customer collaboration
over contract negotiation

within the boundaries of strict contracts, of
course, and subject to rigorous change control


Responding to change
over following a plan

provided a detailed plan is in place to
respond to the change, and it is followed precisely

That is, while the items on the left sound nice in theory, we’re an enterprise company, and there’s no way we’re letting go of the items on the right.

Cobbled together one Saturday morning before breakfast by Kerry Buckley

by Ron Jeffries and this suggestion from Eastmad.

Tak til labbyisten Therese for tippet!

Leave Britney alone !

… selv på TV2 nyhederne skal det nævnes at Britney S. nåsser i det. Oh Well – sådan er det bare. Her er et uddybende link til TV2s gossip side og indslaget i nyhederne.

‘In a related story’ modtog vi fra labyisten Pablo dette link, som er et YouTube klip med en tosset fan, der bestemt tager Britneys parti, og giver medierne skylden for pop-ikonets mange fadæser. Jeg advarer, klippet kan godt være lidt svær at se færdig.

Ja, jeg troede faktisk også det var en pige, men det er det ikke – ‘det’ er en mand (!). Men hvad der er mere sygt er, at for 10 dage siden var der godt 8 millioner der havde set klippet og i skrivende stund har tælleren rundet de 10,469,351. Det er alt alt for sygt. Sikke en eksponering. Da vi modtog klippet for 10 dage siden klarede det ikke vores strenge screening proces (hvor vi vægter kvalitet og saglighed højt), men i lyset af Brittas situation lader vi den gå i gemmen denne ene gang. Vi undskylder på forhånd.

Undskyld
