Engineering Best Practices from Agile Coach David Laribee

  • submit to reddit
David Laribee, an agile coach at VersionOne, shares his experiences from being embedded in development teams that are transitioning to agile methodologies.  He talks about the concept of "the collective" and how developers don't have to lose their identity in that process.  Laribee says individualism can be dangerous when developers become the sole owners of their piece of code.

The common communication problems in agile environments are explained by Laribee along with his tactics for dealing with those problems.  The low technology approach is one agile tactic that Laribee has written about and used.  He explains this approach in more detail and he also talks about the realities of technical debt.  Laribee gives some final words of advice about connecting with development communities outside of your own team.
