I somehow find myself as the guest blogger for a couple of weeks. My format introduction is:
Steve Freeman is a pioneer of the Agile Software movement in the UK, where he helps companies to deliver software. He is a presenter and organizer at international industry conferences, and was Chair of the first London XpDay (now in it’s 10th year). In 2006 he won the Agile Alliance’s Gordon Pask award. Previously, Steve worked in research labs, software houses, earned a PhD, and wrote shrink-wrap software for IBM. He has also taught at University College London. Steve was an attendee at the 2005 Certification at Greenwich University. Steve is fellow addict of Wagner’s Ring Cycle.
but this is a little dull.
The relevant background is that those of us involved in the Agile Software community have been bumping into the furniture for some time as we stumble around, trying to help the people involved understand that developing software on any scale is fraught with uncertainty, hubris, and chance. Our discovery of social complexity has given us a framework to understand, and even explain, some of the practices we’ve adopted. Now we just have to make it work.
I’m also using this as a chance to experiment with a faster style of blogging, since I mostly try to write “well-crafted” posts. We’ll see if I manage carelessly to offend anyone.
