Busy Building Betas!

October 24, 2008 ·

Today saw the release of Workspace Beta 1 Build 2 and it's been a crazy busy day - but a great way to round off the week! The team has worked almost around the clock this week to add new features, redesign large parts of the user interface and track down and fix a number of bugs. We're using the Scrum process with each week being a Sprint and it's been working fairly well for us. We each get to focus on a small set of tasks for the week, we finish the week with a new build and then we discuss what is going into next week's Sprint. Joe (Rinehart) has the most experience with Scrum so he's been leading the charge but it seems a very productive way to develop and evolve a complex feature-driven product. I've learned a couple of (painful) lessons this week and I'll be blogging about those over on the ArgumentCollection soon. By the way, the whole ArgumentCollection team is going to be at MAX - see you there!

    That's great that BC is using Agile/Scrum. My team has been using it over the past few months and it's been very productive for us. We're on 2 week sprints for the most part and it's been very conducive for team collaboration. Looking forward to reading about the lessons you've learned.
