"Auch wenn Scrum mittlerweile auf eine fast 15jährige Erfolgsgeschichte zurückblicken kann, betrachten viele Entwickler diese agile Projektmanagementmethode immer noch mit großer Skepsis. Eine Protagonistin dieses Verfahrens argumentiert vehement dafür, Scrum auf jeden Fall einmal auszuprobieren."

So viel zum Aufmacher des Artikels. Im Moment gibts den Artikel nur als Print Ausgabe.

Last night's 4th meeting of the Cape Town chapter of the Scrum User Group of South Africa was addressed by Hilton Giesenow on the topic of Continuous Integration in Scrum. Hilton is an MVP (C#) and Development Manager at Cape Town-based 3Fifteen. Intec kindly sponsored the venue and food, and Scrum Sense the drinks.

Continuous Integration

There is a summary of his talk on the SUGSA site. If you want to get more serious, buy the book.

My message is: it's not necessary to implement good software development practices like CI, unless you'd like to have a high-performing team!

Abstract

Introducing Scrum in large organization is often a big challenge, it may take a lot of time to have all the parties in-line and able to start the adoption of Scrum. Moreover having a very dynamic and constantly growing organization, requires to adopt special attention to dependencies between products. You need to have a plan, build a transition backlog, and define your strategy to phase out Scrum into the organization. Agile42 is helping Nokia (Berlin) to make this transition.

We get lots of questions on how to do a proper daily standup works. Well, that can't be said in one simple sentence.

There are some companies that practice transparency to a level that only a few do. Hashrocket for example (the tagline is: "No we are not a company that deals hash to junkies in outer space")

They regularly put up videos on Vimeo of how their own agile process works - and I really like them.

If you want to peek into their daily standups, take a look here and here.

Things I especially like about them:

What colour is your backlog?—Or: what do we do next?

Philippe will present his speech from the Orlando Scrum Gathering where he will speak about backlog and time-box, about value versus cost, about visible features versus invisible features (and in particular software architecture), about defects and technical debt, and more generally about release planning and sprint planning for non-trivial and long-lived software development projects.

More information about Philippe you can find here

I am sure this will be an interesting evening :-)
