In this keynote, Ron and Chet demonstrate pair programming and describe how everything a developer needs to know about Agile Software Development shows up during development.
Agile was invented “to make the world safe for programmers”, according to Kent Beck. Yet common experience is that large-scale approaches are certainly not SAFe for programmers, and we are seeing more and more “Dark Scrum”, where debased “Agile” ideas are used, not to draw out the best from teams, but to oppress them.
As we work through a simple pair programming demonstration, we show how the things we learn as developers give us insight into how to live within the organization, and how to improve it.
It’s turtles all the way up and down and we’ll look at some of those turtles.
