in thread Nobody Expects the Agile Imposition (Part VI): Architecture

Wow, that's very interesting. Are they physically working together? If so, in which city? Doing a bit of googling, I found a description of Abigail's When Scrum Isn't Agile Enough talk at YAPC::Europe 2010:

In early 2009, Booking.com started using the agile programming technique, Scrum, for doing development. Right from the beginning, Booking.com needed to steer away from the formal Scrum way in order to cope with its unique demands. Over a period of a year, Booking.com has evolved the technique it uses, resulting in a methodology called "Beyond Scrum".

In this talk, we discuss the Scrum methodology, and how Booking.com initially implemented it. We then discuss the shortcomings and problems Booking.com encountered, and how Booking.com has solved them. We finish we an overview of how Booking.com currently uses its "Beyond Scrum" methodology.

Did anyone attend this talk? If so, can you remember any details of the Booking.com "Beyond Scrum" methodology? I googled but couldn't find a description of it.

    Yes most of us work together in the office - some people work from home. City is Amsterdam - and there is much more of us than you would think ;) I'm not sure about the exact numbers as I never bothered to count - but I would say that 50 is way too little.

    And the correct name/site is: www.booking.com
