Hi.
I have been reading about Scrum development process.
The ideas of this process sound really effective and productive.
Have you worked in a software project developed under Scrum? any stories to share?
Does Scrum collide with XP?
Thanks.

Our team uses a process that is inspired by Scrum, XP and a number of other Agile approaches.

Scrum and XP aren't in conflict at all, other than regarding some of the terminology. In fact a lot of Scrum software development teams find that they need to implement XP-like engineering practices to be able to be productive inside the Scrum framework.

I had been working in scrums for the past 3.5- 4 years. Had been doing TDD for the past 3 years. I really like TDD. But in my opinion Agile methodolgy is yet another hype

I have been using Agile methodologies for more than 2 years now and it has changed the way I & my teams develop software. I don't think it is a hype.

Why do you think that it is another hype? Has it not delivered any value to you?

For a full view of an agile development lifecycle, my Agile SDLC article gives a good overview.

And yes, there is a bit of hype around agile approaches by it does seem to work better than traditional approaches in practice.

As a new QA Manager for a project that is going Agile in a Java environment what processes need be defined? What is the best approach for bringing QA to the table on a 10 person development team that is going to the Scrum model? We have a test automation tool but are weighing the time commitment of introducing it as it has hickups. Any input would be appreciated.
Thanks

I'm also curious about this. I have a similar opinion to Deepak. So far in my projects I've witnessed only positive outcomes of adopting agile practises and values. Sure agile is not a silver bullet, there is no such thing. Agility brings with it its own problems and challenges, but so far I've found that the benefits far outweigh the problems.

Hi Tom, interesting question. It's quite a big topic that would probably deserve its own thread. Would you be willing to start new one? Thanks!
