So – if you are at all familiar with SW development, you know there is the classic waterfall development model, and then a bunch of new methods that “cut down on unnecessary clutter” to deliver “faster and leaner” development.
The most pushed one of these is “Agile” development.
Well – I have been thinking about it and it sounds exactly like what politicians do…
- Say alot, maybe even promise some things, deliver nothing especially no documentation
- Talk alot, do nothing
- Have daily scrums
- When pressed on progress – both say that due to the transition of the process the current efficiency has been diminished.
- When pressed on why it took longer than before – both say that it’s because of the last guy working on this who screwed it up.
- Instead of collaborate – blame.
So – what do you say? Are as SW Programmers politicians at heart? Or just those that promote Agile Development?
