  • 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 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.

  • Optimistic concurrency in MongoDB using.NET and C#
    'This article demonstrates a technique and supporting library for adding optimistic concurrency control to NoSQL databases and MongoDB in particular. At the end of this article is a simple C# class (data context) which has save and  delete  methods which internally are safe via optimistic concurrency control. Quickly, what is optimistic concurrency control? Ideally, all databases that allow concurrent access or disconnected access need to implement some form of  concurrency control. This usually comes in two flavors: Pessimistic concurrency control. Optimistic concurrency control.

  • People or the system?
    An article in the MIT Sloan Management Review a few years back suggested that when “star players” move to a new team they don’t necessarily, or even normally, keep their “star player” performance. “the two view-points are always tenable. The one, how can you improve human nature until you have changed the system? The other, what is the use of changing the system before you have improved human nature?” George Orwell, “Charles Dickens” essay in Shooting and Elephant and Other Essays, Penguin Books I am sure I am not alone in exhibiting another of Orwellian trait: Double think.

  • Links! - 2 conferences, 1 week
    This presentation was based on an article I wrote for InfoQ last year My 10 things for making your Agile adoption successful. I’ve been to two conferences this week! The first was Agile Dev Practices in Potsdam, outside of Berlin. At I presented my Retrospective Dialogue Sheets ( , well I say presented, it was 10 minutes of introduction, 60 minutes of attendees doing Dialogue Sheets and 20 minutes wrap up. Anyone who has attended one of my Dialogue Sheet sessions will recognise the format. Which also means there aren’t a lot of slides for download.

  • Dependency Injection vs. Dependency Injection Framework
    So let's take a step back, and start to unpack the meaning behind 'dependency injection' In the article, DHH uses the ruby example of time, saying that Time.stub(:now) {, 12, 24) } article.publish! There is a lot more in this article that is worth talking about, but let’s save that for a different blog Yesterday, David Heinemeier Hansson wrote a blog: ‘Dependency injection is not a virtue’. There is a lot of things mixed together in this blog, all finally put together with the statement “I'm a Ruby programmer”. It may not apply to your framework.
