Funny anti-XP/Scrum blog

I obviously won’t vouch for the content, but the guy’s got style:  http://softwaremaestro.wordpress.com/2007/06/30/scrum-master-jar-jar/

He says it with vastly more style than me, but to sum up the entire blog:  doing XP/Scrum stupidly is stupid.  Being compared to Jar Jar Binks though, that’s hurtful.

 

To be balanced, learn about making the daily standup an honest-to-goodness useful thing here:  http://www.martinfowler.com/articles/itsNotJustStandingUp.html

    Interesting post the day of a talk at uconn’s user group on Agile/Scrum!

    Steve Forte did an exellent job of enteraining the group on his version of Scrum.

    Thanks for the links Jeremy… Both of them…. I thought the fowler one was very humorous…. With the “if someone encounters an obstacle, EVERYONE must focus their full attention on it!”…. Wow… like a real 70’s kind of “Oh, John is in crisis now, he needs our help let’s all give him our support”…… Will all the HTML developers “give their support” to the poor DBA who is having trouble installing patches on the production machine?

    Wow. So much to parody, so little time
