Pourquoi, pas comment

link -> Pourquoi, pas comment

A couple of weeks ago I was in Paris with Neal Ford to speak at USI 2010. Our talk looked at some aspects of why agile works. Rather than look at the techniques which is how agile does its thing, we looked more at some of the underlying forces - focusing on communication and feedback. The video is now available. (The introduction is in French but the talk is in English. Sadly my French is barely sufficient to order at a restaurant.)

Good video. I enjoyed the part about pair programming and two people make one brain.

It avoids the first roundtrip to the database, and make shorter code to express the change.
Wacky
