While there are plenty of agile coaches preaching this online, I would like to hear from those finding it successful locally. Anyone listening?
Last year someone taught about using fruit as story points. Would you mind elaborating how you've made this work?

Several people asked me tonight to find and post a study by CAST I saw a few weeks ago that suggested, among other things, that hybrid agile/waterfall teams produce a better overall product.

While I'm not speaking for the study's validity I've found it an interesting viewpoint to consider.

Below is the content of the email I received.

Facts are finally starting to help answer whether these and other industry myths are in fact true.

In the 2014 CAST Report on Application Software Health (CRASH), the analysis of 1300 application developed by over 200 organizations has generated fact-based insight into the affect of Agile methods, outsourcing and offshoring.

If you are interested in understand why:

An application's architectural integrity affects how secure it isApplications with more end users tend to be of better qualityADM process maturity (CMM Level) affects overall code qualityHybrid Agile/Waterfall produces better output than pure Agile methodsIn-house and outsource teams deliver same code qualityOffshoring impacts an applications robustness and changeability

You now have access to the Executive Summary for - free.

The report includes insight into the state of technical debt, programming languages, sourcing and development methodology trends and their impact on the quality of your business-critical applications.

Construction in Afton begins at Mile Marker 84. The road looks like it will be all patched up today. LOTOJA cyclists should watch out for a slight drop as you come onto the new pavement.

Update: On the north side of town at the Swift Creek bridge (by the Burger King, Miles 86 and 87) expect a slight bump up onto rough, stripped down asphalt. At the end of it cyclists should prepare for a harsh bump back up onto the normal highway pavement.

I just scored 588879 in Iron Man 3 and I am being forced by the game to share my score to pass a mission. Awesome game, lame company.
