Each and every time, the situation is the same: a big, messy code-base, few (if any) tests and many production issues. It’s no accident that, when he joined what would be the first XP team, the first thing Kent Beck said was: “Let’s scrap it!”
Even with a world class team, these problems can be almost insurmountable. And we don’t usually start out with world class teams. Learning all the XP practices is hard enough without a Big Ball (of Mud) and Chain holding you back.
So maybe we should rebuild. But the Agile way: incrementally, iteratively, and with close involvement from the business.
Using examples from practice, I’ll show that:
Agile Coach, Developer, Scrum Master. Finding ways to make software development better and more fun.
Wouter Lagerweij is an independent Agile Coach operating out of The Netherlands.
I love spending time with teams and organizations to figure out how to improve the way they make software, and make it more fun.
To make that happen I use the knowledge and skills gathered in over eighteen years of experience applying Agile processes and practices from XP, Scrum, Kanban, Lean and Systems Thinking.
To turn those improvements into real business opportunities, I’ve added Lean Startup/Lean Enterprise approaches.
Occasionally, I even use common sense.
