Agile Techniques - who's using what?

A comparison of key agile techniques from Scrum, XP and FDD (and maybe others) as well as a look at some stats showing the trend over the last few years. We'll look to get the groups opinion (MoSCoW) on key techniques.

    Follow-up thought for the group - each individual technique has strengths and weaknesses with many of them dependent on other techniques to be fully effective. Plus, it's the combination of selected techniques, that when combined achieve being Agile, so long as the combination satisfies the 12 Agile Principles.

    Thanks for the upload, Dwayne. Would be interesting to keep an eye on these numbers and do a re-estimate in a year's time to see what changed within the group.

    Okay, so I now have a Continuous Improvement Backlog to get through...

    Over the years I have used bits of everything, wasn't always aware it was "Agile", but this talk put some things into perspective.

    Part of the problem with the way I have experienced Agile techniques is that an attempt is made but no measurement is taken, so we don't really know how much of the code is reviewed, nor unit tested.

    Would be interested to find out what tools people are using in each of these areas, maybe a subject for another talk, "Tools used for Agile".
    We use CodeStriker and BeyondCompare to do code reviews, neither are ideal. CodeStriker gives you some metrics and record/log but the user interface is crap.
    BeyondCompare makes it easy to review changes but there is no log of what has been covered and to what extent.

    Great meetup session, identifying key gaps everyone can think and do something about. Not an incredibly technical session (a particularly good thing from my point of view), I was able to keep up for a change :)

    Good meetup, great to get an insight in the tools and techniques used in the Perth community. Thanks Dwayne and Steve!

    Thanks Dwayne, a good session with some good discussion... so much to do... so much to do... the only way to eat an elephant though is one bite at a time :-)

    Great to have everyone's input and sharing of their experiences of key agile techniques. This is exeactly what these sessions are for.

    I'll upload a tidied up version of the photo of the MoSCoW'ed list and some of the other slides soon.
