Anna Savarin - Non-Euclidean Software Delivery
After some project experience, you would think software development is about feature branches and pull requests, sprints, deadlines and tardy code, brittleness and tech debt, JIRA and PMs, heroic teammates, and stress. It has to be that way as these are all byproducts of some hidden axioms.
Welcome to my new world where axioms are reversed and parallel lines cross! Ever since I joined my mob team and started practicing Extreme Programming, I have been slowly tossing out of the window everything I know so far about software delivery. Fresh, newcomer perspective is short-lived and high-value, and I would like to share my amazement at this non-Euclidean way of delivering software, before it becomes the new norm for me.
