lca 2020 / What UNIX Cost Us

by Benno Rice

especially the last 5 minutes:

1. "complex problems have simple, easy to understand wrong answers"
2. "understand the past, but don't let it bind the future"

it's time to reclaim agility

WHAT to do
1. find out where you are
2. take a small step towards your goal
3. adjust your understandings based on what you learned
4. repeat

HOW to do it
1. when faced with 2 or more alternatives that deliver roughly the same value, take the path that makes future changes easier


GOTO 2015 • Agile is Dead • Pragmatic Dave Thomas

infoq: agile agile blah blah

Kent Beck voices the dismay of many who know better:

"I was in South Africa at Agile Africa and somebody came up to me and said, ‘We want to do software development but we just can’t stand all this ceremony and this Agile stuff. We just want to write some programs.’ Tears came into my eyes…How can it be that we’re right back where we were twenty years ago?"
