  • Software Developmers: prototype of future knowledge workers?
    Peter Drucker (1969) In recent months I have repeatedly been reminded of an argument, or perhaps a hypothesis, I advanced in my 2008 book Changing Software Development. Let me explain, firstly let me explain why I make this argument, then let me explain the significance - and with reference to Agile - and finally, for completeness let me quote from the book… Software Developers - programmers, testers, and everyone else - are what academics would call knowledge workers. And there is a difference between knowledge and information but I’m not going into that here, its in the book.)

  • The Prototype of Future Knowledge Workers
    'The following is an except from my 2008 book “Changing Software Development: Learning to be Agile”. Hence I thought now would be a good time to share this, it also means I can reference this post in the one that comes next… and who know, I might even rustle up a few sales for the book! ve been thinking about this suggestion a lot recently and have a blog post in the works. The Prototype of Future Knowledge Workers Highlighting IT workers as knowledge workers allows us to learn from the existing body of knowledge on the subject. If a tool doesn’t exist, they can’t use it.

  • Notes to students doing research about Agile
    Something that was meant to be in the title of my first book but was messed up.) '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. Lets start with the request itself. Fair enough, I like to help but if you don’t ask nicely I’m unlikely to respond. Agile is not binary.

  • Xanpan update
    'As regular readers will know I have been working on a new book, or rather a new ebook called Xanpan. Indeed, since I am using the LeanPub system some people are now reading the book. The book needed a professional copy edit - indeed even better writers than I have their books professionally copy edited. would like to offer readers of this blog a buy the book at a discount, half the recommended price. If you follow this link to Xanpan on the LeanPub site or enter the code “BlogMarch2014” when buying the book the price will be reduced.

  • Managers who don't TDD be unemployable before 2012.
    And it is even harder to persuade them that having some help, going on a course or having some coaching, is a faster route to proficiency than reading a book and watching some screencasts. 'In the furious discussion over my “ Programmers without TDD will be unemployable ” last month a couple of people asked: “How will this come to pass?” And a few others said: “Managers will never let this happen.” Let me answer both these comments in one go: Managers are the missing link between today’s largely TDD-free code development and the 2012 world where TDD will be essential to get a job.

  • Unemployable without TDD - a follow up
    am also happy read Steve and Nat ’ s book, Growing Object Oriented Software - and yes, that is an Amazon associates link, is that a crime? 'The reaction to my last entry - Programmers without TDD will be unemployable by 2022 - took me a little by surprised. expected there would be a reaction, perhaps a big reaction, but I frequently expect some reaction and usually I get none. This time I got a reaction and the scale of the reaction continues to surprise me. ve come back on many, certainly not all, of those comments directly but I won’t come back to every point. we really tried it.

  • Programmers without TDD will be unemployable by 2022 (a prediction)
    This is unlike Agile in general where it is very difficult to tell who actually understand it and who has just read a book or two.) 'New year is traditionally the time of predictions, and several of the blogs I read have been engaging in predictions (e.g. Ian Sommerville “Software Engineerng looking forward 20 years.” ). This is not a tradition I usually engage in myself but for once I’d like to make one. I’ll get back to software economics next time, I need to make some conclusions.) By TDD I mean Test Driven Development - also called Test First (or Design Driven) Development.

  • Allan Kelly: Supply & Demand in software development
    Most of the studies, books and papers about “software economics” would be better called “software accounting.” 'I’m proud to say I am, or at least was, a Software Engineer. m proud to say that I’m a third generation Engineer. My farther and grandfather got their hands dirty with the oily sort of engineering. But I’m also a frustrated Economist. Economics forms part of both of my degrees and on a couple of occasions I’ve been temped to become a real Economist. So I am always disappointed when someone talks about Software Economics. have yet to find a serious study of software economics.
