Software Estimation, Agile and Ruby, and Writing Good Code

Posted in Programming by Brian Russell on August 3, 2007

Planning Poker – I really like this idea.  As our group moves to be more agile, this would definately be of value.  Simple 13 minute video to watch when you get a chance.  Read the comments, some of them are insightful for seperating out estimating and planning and how they relate.

Applying Agile to Ruby – Fred George from ThoughtWorks gives a 40+ minute talk that I found interesting since I have been working with Ruby On Rails lately.  I really liked all the years of experience pooring out while he talked.

We Are What We Repeatedly Code – Talk about how practicing good coding habits becomes normal over time, and that should always be something to strive towards.
