Reading List for January 2010

What I’ve been reading this month…


  • The Problem with User Stories – an interesting negative reflection on user stories. I don’t completely agree with his solution, but I do understand where he’s coming from.
  • Does Methodology Matter? – some good points about what we should be thinking about regardless of our methodology perferences.
  • The Risk of Scrum – another I don’t necessarily agree with but I understand the problems… I do think he’s missed the value of the sprint time-box and the responsibility of the product owner to prioritize activities.
  • Scrum Anti-pattern : Prioritizing Stories Within Sprints – we need to trust the team to get things done and when we can’t we need to learn from the estimation and the velocity and adjust planning accordingly.

    I saw you linked to an article on BDD in Flex that related to a project I had a while back called Bread and Butter. I closed down B&B but I created a new project that integrates directly with Cucumber called Melomel.

    If you’re still looking for a Flex BDD solution then you should check it out. It’s works pretty well.
