Why Devs Hate Agile and What to do About It

14th November 2018 in London at CodeNode

There are 1 other SkillsCast available from London Java Community- November

The current success of Agile is based on theft. Agile was stolen from developers and is now imposed back. No wonder developers roll their eyes when Agile is mentioned!

The Agile approaches and toolset are a great way of involving the whole team in the management of a software development effort. But the same tools, in the wrong hands, make very effective micromanagement tools.

Developers need to take back control of development and put quality at the top of the agenda. The latest thinking in Agile - Continuous Delivery, #NoProjects, #NoEstimates, Mobbing, BDD and #BusTech - offer exciting alternatives for those who want to create great software.
