What’s hard about being an agile developer?

Posted on by

"Simple" is a word often used in agile software development. Terms like YAGNI and "do the simplest thing that can possibly work". It is easy to forget, however, that Simple is often Hard! So what’s hard about becoming an agile software developer, where are the bumps in the ride?

In this talk I went through some aspects of agile software development that many developers find to be hard, or even unpleasant initially.

Here are the slides. The session took place Oct 1 at JAOO 2008 in Aarhus, Denmark.

I passed two microphones around and had the audience act out Ola the Optimist and Pete the Pessimist whenever their quotes popped up. It was like a live commentary of the presentation from two different perspectives. Great fun :o)

JAOO tutorial slides

For those of you who attended my Scrum & XP tutorial at the JAOO conference, here are the slides:


Thanks for attending, hope you had a good time! Despite my piano playing (how can I resist a grand piano standing in the corner of the room :o)

I thought the attendance would be like 7 or 8 people, considering it was Friday afternoon after a long hard conference week. So I was very surprised to see 45 faces there! I sat with Jeff on the bus back to the airport, turned out that he was the one who had been telling everyone to go :o)

Anyway good luck and happy Scrumming and XP-ing!
