 An intriguing article by the CEO of Mindflash on VentureBeat last week had a great premise:

Software developers accustomed to coding all-nighters in college are hired by employers expecting them to continue working 12 to 15 hours a day. The pace is relentless. What strikes me is that in the software industry, startups and established companies alike have fully accepted that work overload is just normal.

-- Donna Wells, Let’s take a more rational approach to ‘work-life balance’


Her clear solution: Agile processes.  It makes sense, but do you agree?  Can you recall any instances where agile has prevented you from pulling 12-15 hour workdays and all-nighters?
