Test First development: 2 years including mentoring Pair Programming: 2 years on and off including mentoring Steady Refactoring: 2 years including mentoring Standups, short iteration planning: 1 year
Convincing people to pair program and refactor by default. Working with a group of people who never worked in a solid, clean well refactored code base makes them massively underestimate the advantages of it. Pair programming everything is not worth it for a single day, the long tail of the pay off is the important criteria. This is something that is hard to understand without having experienced it.
Test Driven Development, Application Design, Organisational Refactoring
Java, Groovy, Coffeescript
I'm primarily a java developer who has been using small groups of XP practices solo or in small teams. I'm looking to learn refinements of the components I have been using, and learn some of the more subtle advantages when they all come together.
