| | Business Patterns for Software Developers
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. The presentation itself can be downloaded from my website - Business Patterns for Software Developers - or viewed on Slideshare. One of these questions concerned the book’s title: Business Patterns for Software Developers. Anyway, I digress…. Allan Kelly's Blog - Friday, June 8, 2012
Agile: Where's the evidence?
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. On my last visit we held a workshop with the leaders of the companies and software teams. I think it might come down to one question: Is software development a defined process activity or an empirical process activity? A few weeks ago I was presenting at the BCS SIGIST conference - another outing for my popular Objective Agility presentation. Scrum? Allan Kelly's Blog - Friday, March 30, 2012

| | Requirements and Specifications
The first book I picked up was Mike Cohn’s User Stories Applied , the nearest thing the Agile-set has to a definitive text on requirements. True Requirements runs throughout the book but doesn’t help me compare and contrast. There are usually one or the other, or neither, and they are both about “what the software should do.” The fact that so many prominent books duck the question of requirements and specification makes me think this is a fairly common issue. which I should just have entitled it “Requirements: Whose job are they anyway?” turned to the index and….

Requirements whose job are they anyway?
The talk title is a reference to the John Le Carre book “Tinker Tailor Solider Spy!” , its probably too clever by half and I should just have entitled it “Requirements: Whose job are they anyway?” This is often the case when development groups are developing software for the company’s own use or by a specific client. Part of the problem is that in the UK - I can’t really talk for other countries but I think most of Europe is the same - software companies appoint Business Analysts to do what us essentially a Product Manager role.

- Software Facts - well, numbers at least
About a year ago I needed some numbers about software development - industry norms really: effectiveness, productivity, bug counts etc. Its actually pretty hard to get these numbers and after hunting around I found myself with a copy of Capers Jones Applied Software Measurement. Jones, for those who don’t know, has made a career out of analysing software and software teams numbers. Applied Software Measurement is his latest work on the subject - although its nearly three years out of date. But really, it isn’t a book of numbers. Tom Gilb is right!)

- 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. So where does this leave us?

- 10 things to know about Kanban software development
1) Kanban software development originated by David Anderson. 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. 7) Kanban derives more directly from Lean Thinking and Lean software development then many of the previous Agile techniques. Actually, I just discovered that at the moment this blog appears on the first page in Google if you search for “Kanban software development.”

- 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.

- 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. 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? Michael Dirolf also has a great book in the works. You can catch a preview of it on Safari Books Online. Maybe you’ve heard people talking about ditching their SQL Servers and other RDBMS entirely. Insanity!” Flat files?
