Up: Scott Ambler: Continuous Architecture and Emergence Design

  • Ambler: "Lean Startup techniques are great, but bank customers less forgiving when $$ disappear & exps take wks to fix"
  • Ambler: "Myths: agilists don't 'do architecture', start coding right away, don't follow enterprise arch, don't model, don't document"
  • Ambler: "Agilists are more prone to model than traditionalists"
  • Ambler: "Architecture is so important that agilists address it throughout the entire lifecycle"
  • Ambler: "Disciplined agilists invest in some upfront envisioning, work closely with enterprise professionals, explicitly model in a lightweight moanner throughout the lifecycle, write deliverable documentation continuously
  • Ambler: "Disciplined Agile Delivery (DAD): has Architecture Owner role: facilitates, mentors/coachs practices & issues
  • @seidewitz: "Architecture is so important that agilists address it throughout the lifecycle." @scottwambler
  • .@scottwambler: "Often Agile branded terms obfuscates: suggest 'sprints' > 'iterations'; 'scrums' > 'coord mtgs'"
  • .@scottwambler: "Gove
  • @seidewitz: "Governance is a swear word in the agile community. Fact is, you are being governed." @scottwambler

  • .@scottwambler: "All my slides are on the #agile2013 site; umm, that is, if it hasn't been hacked..." (harhar. cheap shot)
  • .@scottwambler: "TOGAF has 6 views; identify technical strategy; data warehouse: data views; ecommerce: tech views
  • .@scottwambler: "Common Ops objection: 'last thing we need here is more technology, regardless of features'" (haha, yes)
  • .@scottwambler: "Mistake often made: teams too team-centric, versus stakeholder-centric (which inc enterprises)
  • .@scottwambler: "Fastest way to decrease data quality is to create another database" (maybe not true, as per @adrianco)
  • .@scottwambler: "Avg Agile team spends 4.5 weeks doing inception/upfront planning, and continues to lengthen
  • .@scottwambler: "Non-functional requirements are the critical drivers of architecture"
  • @GaryPedretti: RT @seidewitz: "We want to prove the architecture works -- ideally with working code." @scottwambler
  • @krubinagile: RT @andrewmfuqua: Manage WIP & flow of projects. Plan frequently. Annual planning is ok for strategy, not commitment.@krubinagile
  • .@scottwambler: giving exmpl of a sw team who works 3-4 sprints ahead of devs, doing modeling, thinking things thru in advance
  • .@scottwambler: "Often Agile teams get wrapped around backlog, where planning, modeling hinge;
  • @SMRobson: RT @simonbrown: “Use modelling/sketching for the big stuff, TDD for the detailed stuff” @scottwambler at #Agile2013 (aka use techniques as …
  • @markwshead: "The goal isn't for the team to sprint. The goal is for the system to sprint."
  • @SMRobson: #agile2013 @deanleffingwell SAFe - when the system sprints we make progress, when teams sprint we don't.
  • @simonbrown: “Testless programming is an option, it’s not a good one!” @scottwambler #Agile2013
  • .@scottwambler: "We all need to up our game & spend time cleaning up our old messes, not just creating new features"
  • .@scottwambler: "
  • @seidewitz: RT @nhajratw: many sessions at #agile2013 discussing the importance of optimizing the whole system and not just the team. Yay! #lean #kanban
  • @njm: RT @PrettyAgile: What happens when you have perverse incentives... @DocOnDev #agile2013 http://t.co/waXAKfQfVt
  • .@scottwambler: "Think about the future, but wait to act;
  • .@scottwambler: "Learn early, learn fast; much more palatable than fail early, fail fast"
  • .@scottwambler: "We must all be looking at bigger picture outside of our team; aka enterprise-aware, community-aware, etc.@berndschiffer: Saw @Deanleffingwell on Scale Agile Framework. Couldn't be more contrast compared to the @Spotify session.
