was there to talk about the software business, or more specifically, patterns of software business…. OK, I admit it, I was there to plug my book Business Patterns for Software Developers - sales are going well, although I can always do with more and a few more reviews on Amazon would be well received.

Agile: Where's the evidence?
Web development? Traditional development has been very accepting of bugs, Agile isn’t. Test Driven Development is clearer. Keith is very careful point out that correlation does not imply cause although one might hypothesis that test driven development leads to “better” design. For their book Organizational Patterns of Agile Software Development Coplien and Harrison spent over 10 years assessing teams. This lead to a set of patterns which describe much of Agile software development. Agile Development: Fact or Fiction, 2006). Allan Kelly's Blog - Friday, March 30, 2012
An Effective Introduction to the STL Training
The Standard Template Library (the STL) is the most exciting C++ innovation in a decade, one that promises to revolutionize C++ software development. The companion reference book, Nicolai M. Participants will gain: An understanding of the architecture behind the STL, including its core components and concepts. Mastery of the subtle differences in semantics of member and non-member functions with the same name, e.g., find, remove, etc. Knowledge of how to integrate STL containers with code expecting arrays and other C-like data structures.

What is Agile?
At first I thought my notes on Xanpan would be similar to my “Agile Reader” mini-book , then I thought Xanpan would be a replacement for the Agile Reader series, now I’m seeing it as a book format collection of writing that goes beyond Agile Reader and includes new material on Xanpan specifically. At the moment my working title is “Xanpan - and other notes on Agile & Lean Software Development”. As I’ve said before, the manifesto is now a historic document , it was written at a time when heavy-weight development processes (e.g. What’s happening?

Unspoken Cultural differences in Agile & Scrum
In particular I believe the canonical version of Scrum, which I often refer to as Hard Core Scrum or Scrum™ is rooted in 1990’s American software management culture. In the original book of Extreme Programming Kent Beck talked of a “sustainable pace” and “40 hour work week”. And I’ve been told No when I want to spend a little money - I once threatened to leave the company if they didn’t buy more RAM for my development box. This all begs the question, why would American management be such a hinderance to software development? Take stand-up meetings for example. Allan Kelly's Blog - Wednesday, October 31, 2012

- 10 things to know about Kanban software development
1) Kanban software development originated by David Anderson. The limit is usually quite low, in the teams I have worked with the limit is approximately the same as the number of developers on the team or slightly less. Work in progress could be: in development, in test, in analysis or in other states. 6) There are currently no books on Kanban software development. There is one that comes close, Corey Ladas ScrumBan - Essays on Kanban Systems for Lean Software Development. ve read this book and I’m not rushing to recommend it.

- Make strategy like you make software?
There is an interesting piece in the latest issue of the MIT Sloan Review entitled: Should you build strategy like you build software? After all, we are regularly told that 70% of IT projects fail, and a few months ago the same journal ran a piece damning software development and specifically ERP systems: The Trouble with Enterprise Software So why would anyone want to copy what IT does? McFarland is arguing is: many of the practices and techniques used in Agile software development can be applied to strategy formation and execution.

- The NoSQL Movement, LINQ, and MongoDB - Oh My!
There is a movement out in the software development world called the "No SQL" movement and it’s taking the web application world by storm. The outcry about flat files above is meant to highlight an assumption developers often have about building data-driven applications: Data goes in the database (SQL Server, Oracle, or MySql). Starting from an RDBMS is virtually an axiom of software development. But how much expensive hardware and software do these require? How easy is it to leverage *commodity* hardware and free software? Insanity!” Flat files?

- The Dirty Secret of Computer Science
Outside of universities and operating system development, there isn’t a lot of computer science involved in the daily grind of computer programming. I’ve long thought that Donald Knuth had it right when he titled his books The Art of Computer Programming. Creating software bears some resemblance to art as in the work of an artist. Software artisans use the tools and techniques of modern software development to create the wide variety of software that entertains us and runs our businesses. Tags: Development Not by a long shot.

- Factory Physics and software factories
That might sound very negative but actually this book is highly recommended. It is over 600 pages long and was originally written as a text book so can be a little tedious at times. That said its a great book to read with lots of important facts and implications. Every so often I come across managers who liken their software development teams to factories. They talk about the “software factory” or what happens “in the engine room.” I think this analogy shows a fundamental misunderstanding of what goes on in software development groups.
