NEW POST!
And a new series about unit testing anti-patterns.
This time: TDD without refactoring.

http://www.everydayunittesting.com/2016/07/unit-tests-anti-patterns-tdd-without-refactoring.html

In this series, we’re taking a look at what we do in agile, those pesky practices, and why we’re doing them. The purpose is the key here, and if you’re not getting the benefit, yo…

NEW POST on the Agile Economics series: Scale 3D. Last part on the scaling mini-series. And how you really can scale.
http://www.gilzilberfeld.com/2016/06/agile-economics-scale-3d.html
When we started talking about scaling, we said that organizations are looking for a cure. The pain is slow delivery. That cure seems to be taking the success agility brought the team and scale it t…

NEW POST on EVERYDAY UNIT TESTING: TDD in real life. This is part 1
of a beautiful new series.
http://www.everydayunittesting.com/2016/05/tdd-in-real-life-part-1.html
TDD comes from the world of unit testing. It’s optimized for small pieces of code; small increments of functionality. BDD takes the test-first approach, adds functional and user semantics and…

This series is about how to do stuff right by explaining why we do those things we do. If you do, and get the wrong results, you might be doing it wrong. Last time, we talked about the Definition o…

Iteration planning, part 2. It deserved a sequel, because, well, you're doing it wrong too.
http://www.gilzilberfeld.com/2016/06/youre-doing-it-wrong-iteration-planning-part-2.html
In this series, we’re taking a look at how we do things, and why. More importantly, why we are supposed to do things, and what’s the expected outcome. If you don’t get those outco…

NEW POST! And a new series. "You're doing it wrong". This time about iteration planning.

http://www.everydayunittesting.com/2016/06/tdd-in-real-life-part-2.html
