(Continued from Accelerated Agile on Øresund Agile 2008.) After two days of workshops, Wednesday was the conference day. Two sessions specifically addressed distributed Scrum: having teams, or part of teams, in different geographic locations. The presentation by Scrum co-creator Jeff Sutherland was great but also a bit utopian while the other, by Arto Vihavainen and… Continue reading Øresund Agile 2008 Conference Day
Yesterday I participated in the Accelerated Agile workshop at Øresund Agile 2008. It was attended by both developers and non-developers. Some parts of the workshop were common for the two groups and others were separate. Me and another developer actually did both TDD and pair programming! BestBrains, the company that organized the workshop, had prepared… Continue reading Accelerated Agile on Øresund Agile 2008
Today, on the first day of Øresund Agile 2008, I attended the Agile Architecture workshop held by Jim Coplien. He is a really great speaker! Some things that stuck in my head: Don’t use TDD, it destroys architecture because it makes the programmer focus on individual methods, losing the bigger picture on the way Don’t… Continue reading Agile Architecture on Øresund Agile 2008

During the afternoon today I attended the first part of a mostly in-house course Scrum for team members led by Arne Åhlander. I’ll hopefully write more about it later, but now I’m going to work on The Project. Before I forget; I was recommended Virtual Private Server (VPS) hosting at GleSYS. Anyone else who can… Continue reading Coding, not blogging
I try to avoid telling myself that I don’t have time for this or that. The truth is that it comes down to how I prioritize those things. I naturally try to put family and work first, but I also make room for my own projects and ideas. Some projects only take a few hours,… Continue reading Project prioritization – Inspect and Adapt!
I’m I crazy or not? Me and my wife usually have a chat in the evening about what we’ve done during the day (“started painting the bedroom”) and our plans for the day after (“continue painting the bedroom”). When I realized how similar this is to the Daily Scrum, I smiled and started asking her… Continue reading “Daily Scrum” at home?
