in thread Nobody Expects the Agile Imposition (Part VIII): Software Craftsmanship

Sounds like most 'sets of principles': read, understand, and apply judiciously; they can help you focus on what's important.

But try to impose them; dogmatically or automatically; and they become the focus. To the detriment of all else.


With the rise and rise of 'Social' network sites: 'Computers are making people easier to use everyday'
Examine what is said, not who speaks -- Silence betokens consent -- Love the truth but pardon error.
"Science is about questioning the status quo. Questioning authority". I'm with torvalds on this
In the absence of evidence, opinion is indistinguishable from prejudice. Agile (and TDD) debunked

    I think these two lines are perhaps the truest things I've read about software development or anything else all day.

    Dogmatically applying any set of guidelines as inflexible rules is both silly and against the definition of "agile" as a word and as the original movement. A team should make as much or as little use of a methodology or a mix of methodologies as works best for that team. Anything written in a book or taught in a class is just a starting point for a new team and shouldn't be an end goal.
