Three of our team are participating in this year’s . Luke Melia is presenting Supercharging the WPF Command Pattern with Dependency Injection. Wendy Friedlander and Oksana Udovitska are presenting The Gentle Art of Pair Programming and Testing in C# with RhinoMocks.
I’ve always wanted to build a learning culture. Before embracing agile principles, we had a hard time fulfilling this aspiration. In retrospect, our definition of the developer role and what constituted success in that role was too narrow. Intensive classes on specific topics don’t suit many learning styles and there was no direct connection between a broader scope of learning and project outcomes.
Scrum and XP require continual improvement. They encourage reflection, engage a broad range of social and intellectual intelligences and tie those abilities to project success. They place you in a larger ecology of peers and mentors.
People striving to make a contribution love learning.
