  • A footnote of a book: Agile Reader, 3rd edition
    Originally Agile Reader was articles I had published elsewhere. 'If you have had the pleasure to see me present in recent months - either in public or on a training course - you might have noticed that I have taken to describing myself as “a writer who pays the bills by consulting and providing training.” Partly thats because I always seem to come back to writing, I seem to have this insatiable need to express myself and explain my thoughts. Hence two traditional, old fashioned books Changing Software Development and Business Patterns. book by anyone’s standard. Just a foot note really

  • X things every JavaScript developer should know: use strict
    See this article for more information. 'In the previous blog post I explained that you should normally use an Immediately-Invoked Function Expression (IIFE) to give variables function scope. That works fine as log as we remember to declare our variables using the var keyword. However when we forget the var keyword we are back to the original problem as the variables are added to the global scope. Leaking undeclared variables As you can see in the two code snippets below the text variables are not declared using var. 5: console.log(text); 6: }, 1000); 7: }()); 8: 1: ( function () {.

  • Inconvient truths of project Status reporting
    But once in a while an article comes along which is worth a year’s subscription. The “ Pitfalls of Project Status Reporting ” is this year’s article. As the title suggests the article looks at why project status reporting, specifically for IT projects, so often fails to alter companies of the problems in project work. The comments are all my own but the quotes - and the headlines in bold - are from the article which is research not conjecture, something we could do we more of! Why do I think of banks and bonuses when I read this?

  • Ameba Teams and Amoeba Management
    Fortunately the ideas are compatible and I’ve recently gone back and re-read the article. I’m sure the article has influenced my thinking since I originally read it too.) Amoeba Management: Lessons from Japan’s Kyocera appeared in the Sloan Management Review in late 2012 - you can buy the article from Amazon too. The article does point out that Amoeba Management, indeed any management approach, depends on the context. Rather than go on about Amoeba Management right now I’ll let you read about it yourself - although that will cost, the article and the book.

  • Notes to students doing research about Agile
    Have a look at my Agile Spectrum article : the thing that is called “Agile”, and the thing that is called “Waterfall” are simply points on a spectrum - probably the two extremes - and most teams are somewhere in-between. 'The dissertation/thesis writing season is approaching so I expect the recent set of questions from a student is the first of many. Actually they occur all year round but March to September is the busy period. So, to pre-empt any students bearing questions about Agile - and so I can just repeat my stock answers - here are some ideas you might want to consider first.

  • Ever wonder how big the.NET and Python communities are?
    I’m working on an article about Python and.NET and this comparison definately came to mine. 'Do you ever wonder how big.NET and Python communities are? So I did some research on meetup.com. chose seven locations: Chicago, IL. Los Angeles, CA. New York, NY. Seattle, WA. Portland, OR. San Francisco, CA. Silicon Valley, CA. And did a search for meetups on.NET and on Python. Here is a graph of the results: [click image to enlarge]. There are definitely locations where.NET is more popular. LA has 1,292.NET devs vs 918 Python devs. Chicago has 588.NET devs vs 266 Python devs.

  • 3 Styles: Iterative, Incremental and Evolutionary Agile (part 1)
    Incredibly I’ve never blogged about this - although the model is hidden inside a couple of articles over the years. 'When I’m teaching training courses (as I was this week at Skills Matter ) or advising clients on the requirements side of software development (which I’m doing a lot of just now) I talk about model I call “3 Styles of Agile”. So now the day has come… I don’t claim the “3 Styles model” is the way it should be, I only claim it is the way I find the world. the requirements side is very very variable. There are times when the other styles are “right.” And so it goes.
