- Llewellyn Falco (Approval Tests): What I've learned about open source by pairing with Simon Cropp
Use this when creating your nuget with the -Version flag If any of this was confusing checkout these files from my project: VersionInfo.cs , ApprovalTests.csproj , ApprovalTests.CSharp.nuspec , CreateNuget.cmd 1.dll per Nuget Having more than one dll file in a nuget package is a bit counter productive since you now can''t use only 1 of them. 'Over the last 2 weeks I have be fortunate enough to pair with Simon Cropp for about 8 hours on my open source project ApprovalTests. Think about your ''brand'' Often I am writing ApprovalTests because I use ApprovalTests myself. There isn''t.

- Testing triangles, pyramids and circles, and UAT
typically hear people say there are between two and four times as much test code (for unit tests) as production code. Both mean: showing a potentially finished product to real life users and getting their response. 'A few months ago Markus Gartner introduced me to the Testing Triangle, or Testing Pyramid. It looks like this: If you Google you will find a few slightly different version and some go by the name of Testing Pyramid. Now a question: where did this come from? Who should I credit with the original? Markus thinks it mike be Mike Cohn but he’s not sure.

- Agile Clinic: Dear Allan, we have a little problem with Agile.
Could it be that the Product Owners are not sufficiently flexible in what they are asking for and are therefore setting the team up to fail each sprint? 'Consider this blog an Agile Clinic. On Friday an e-mail dropped into my mailbox asking if I could help. The sender has graciously agreed to let me share the mail and my advice with you, all anonymously of course… The sender is new to the team, new to the company, they are developing a custom web app for a client, i.e. they are an ESP or consultancy. the Developers work in sprints, estimating tasks in JIRA as they go. And yo have Jira?

- A Roundup of MongoDB Management Tools
The data is a great asset when optimizing applications during development and potentially invaluable when diagnosing production issues. 'I’ve been working with MongoDB for a long time now. Back in the early days, there really were no management tools analogous to RDBMS tools (e.g. SQL Server Management Studio ). Since then, things have changed significantly. It’s time to look around and see what management / monitoring tooling is around these days for MongoDB. The news is good. There are many different options to choose depending on your platform and use-cases. link]. link].
- Requirements and Specifications
'As I was saying in my last blog, I’m preparing for a talk at Skills Matter entitled: “Business Analyst, Product Manager, Product Owner, Spy!” So now I turned to a standard textbook on requirements: Discovering Requirements: How to Specify Products and Services by Alexander and Beus-Dukis. which I should just have entitled it “Requirements: Whose job are they anyway?” and so I’ve been giving a lot of thought to requirements. Bear with me, I’ll come back to this point at the end.) So I turned to my bookshelves…. turned to the index and…. nothing. Which bring us back to BDD.

- Requirements whose job are they anyway?
'Later this week I’m giving a talk at Skills Matter entitled: “Business Analyst, Product Manager, Product Owner, Spy!” In the extreme this means developers never get to meet, talk to or understand the people and businesses that will be using the product. However, it was another problem that was on my mind more when I thought up the talk: the confusion of roles between Business Analysts and Product Managers, made worse by the appearance of the Scrum Product Owner title. think there are a number of problems on this side of the business.

- People or the system?
is whether it can help mediocre people perform, i.e. deliver, be more productive” In that one statement I epitomise the contradiction. “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. Scrum, XP, Prince2, DSDM, etc.) Kanban, Scrum, etc. Fall 2008 issue.

- Conway's Law v. Software Architecture
There is need for a philosophy of system design management which is not based on the assumption that adding manpower simply adds to productivity." I've written about Conway's Law before ( Return to Conway’s Law (2006) and a Focus Group I ran at EuroPLoP “What do we think of Conway’s Law Now?” ) but I make no apologies for revisiting it again because I still think it hold true. There are times when I wonder if there is any point to the discipline called "Software Architecture." Conway, 1968 The original paper “ How do committees invent? is available from Conway’s own website.

- 11 Agile Myths and 2 Truths
Documentation is just another deliverable , if it brings you value then schedule it and product it like anything else. Agile needs more discipline from the team and what gets done should be lead from a specific role usually designated the Customer or Product Owner and usually played by a Product Manager or Business Analyst. I deliver a lot of Agile training courses and I give a lot of talks about Agile ( BCS Bristol tonight ). There are some questions that come up again and again which are the result of myths people have come to believe about Agile.
