My Boss: I suggest you sit down.
I have a new role for you. We have the regulatory reporting department that is currently made up of one developer and a couple of large ailing systems. We have to ramp this up to a department capable of acting as the hub for dozens of systems in the bank so we can report their trading activities to regulators around the world. You have less than a year before the regulations come into force!
Me: I think I need to lie down.
How do you start to create a department that will eventually expand to 6 teams in the first year consisting of over 30 developers. More importantly how do you adopt and maintain XP practices such as TDD, Continuous Integration, and Pair Programming at this scale? This is an account of our successes and failures during that year.
