I want to get back to "software development". It was a mistake to present "Agile" as a special case, as it allows teams to opt out of things like iterating and working closely with the customers
Are we getting tired of the kind of "agile" where you don't really have any particular technical practices, change (and improvement) is entirely optional, and you pretty much do waterfall with additional overhead of meetings?...

Agreed as well.

It is about using techniques that work, not about in-group and out-group. Though I'd prefer to compete against people who don't do things because "that's agile." ;-)

Please helps us raise money to start a programming club at The National Museum and fund parent-child maths workshops at Bletchley Park. Every penny of the profits go to these great causes.

Opened for registration last week. So far, we've raised over £5,000 towards the cost of the special display casing for the Turing papers and other Bletchley Park projects. If you're passionate about code, join us.
