*** Quote of the Month ***


In other words, estimating is the key to unlocking the ability to commit. The ability to commit to near-term deliverables is the key to building a reliable, agile enterprise. So, there are good business reason why we need to take a harder look at this funny agile estimating thing.

Keeping Software Soft

Why should we keep software soft? Because software should be easy to change. This is how this book from Jason Roberts starts. In the first page, he writes "If you want to make developing software a happier, more enjoyable, and more productive experience this book is for you. Keeping Software Soft provides practical guidance on how to keep software as soft as we can. You can read from beginning to end or just jump in at any point and use as a reference guide."

Read the review and quotes from Keeping Software Soft.
