We all have experienced software that we don't want to update. You think you know what it's doing, but you don't know, and now you have to make a change. The code might be a tangled mess or it might be well factored code but if it doesn't have automated tests to give us confidence in our changes, it's still difficult to update. Michael Feathers defines legacy code as "simply code without tests.... With tests, we can change the behavior…

Estimates and NoEstimates: Let’s explore the possibilities with Woody Zuill (Wed, Jul 12, 2017)

The default use of an "estimate-driven" approach is pervasive in software development efforts. While estimates can be useful, it is worthwhile to scrutinize our use of estimates, and to seek better ways to manage the development of software when estimates are not appropriate. There are a number of things to explore. For example, do we really need estimates for everything we currently use them for? Are we getting a reasonable benefit from them? Is it possible to manage software development…

Would you be interested in investigating, exploring, and trying a way of working that might give you: shorter lead times? fewer bugs? more knowledge transfer? shorter feedback loops? happier co-workers that know each other better? a climate in the team that improves our ability to contribute well? a decreased need for status and planning meetings? an environment of amplified learning? an effective way of on-boarding new team members? Please join us for a full day hands-on Mob Programming workshop! Mob…
