Episode 161: State of Agile in Singapore with Stanly Lau

The Agile Revolution Podcast

Craig is at YOW! Singapore and catches up with Stanly Lau, organiser of the Agile Singapore conference and the Agile Singapore meetup:

  • Bas Vodde was one of the early advocates for Agile in Singapore
  • The state of Agile in Singapore has progressed from “doing a standup” in 2010 to now many companies thinking about how they develop software better
  • A lack of knowledge in design principles by new software developers seems to affect how they tackle problems
  • The art of being able to sit down and pair in a team is an art that is being lost in the Agile community
  • You can learn a lot about a team by looking at their codebase
  • Good agile development practices require know-how and habit – does not come by nature

Agile 2008 – Technical Lessons Learned Turning the Agile Dials to Eleven!

My presentation with Paul King from Agile 2008 called “Technical Lessons Learned Turning the Agile Dials to Eleven!” is available on Slideshare.

Developer practices for traditional and agile Java development are well understood and documented. But dynamic languages – Groovy, Ruby, and others – change the ground rules. Many of the common practices, refactoring techniques, and design patterns we have been taught either no longer apply or should be applied differently and some new techniques come into play. In this talk, techniques for agile development with dynamic languages are discussed. How should we better apply refactoring techniques? What new aspects do we need to think about?

The session was recorded and is available on InfoQ.

The corresponding paper is available via the IEEE and is also available in full via the Agile Academy.
