The Loosely Coupled podcast, hosted by PHP community members Jeff Carouth and Matt Frost, has posted their latest episode. In Episode #4: An Agile Rant they talk about agile development practices and compromises.
In this episode Matt and Jeff talk about their experiences with adopting Agile as individuals and as teams. The important take aways are to not be too loose nor too rigid with the practice; to accept change as it happens but to not force change too rapidly; to honor the purposes of the components of agile practices; and, above all, to find what works for your team specifically over what you read in a book.
Topics mentioned include the Agile Manifesto and the books "Agile Project Management and Extreme Programming Explained.
