We Can’t Do That In One Sprint

I came across a great software development post on Hackernoon called We Can’t Do That In One Sprint. This is basically where Product comes to the development team with an idea of a new feature or product and they want to know how long it will take to develop and get to production as quickly as possible.

Too often have I experienced what is outlined in this article. I agree that it’s best to do small chunks of work and get it out to production and then iterate on the feature. What I find is that this fails when Product doesn’t give Development enough time to iterate and cuts the timeline short and moves on. Maybe this is what the business wants/needs but sometimes it leads to features being half baked, released to production, rarely iterated on and then future features are built on this feature.

As the author says, “There is NO silver bullet. Get SOMETHING out there in one sprint.”

Enjoy!

The Quiet Crisis unfolding in Software Development

Came across a great article today about the quiet crisis that is unfolding in software development. Being a software developer myself I almost 99% agree with this article and see it day in and day out. Hopefully things in our industry change.

Anyway enjoy the read!
