Make sure you didn't miss anything with this list of the Best of the Week in the Agile Zone (Apr. 25 to May 01). Here they are, in order of popularity:

1. Talent Helps But It's Hard Work That Counts

Sometimes people fail before they have even started. This is not because the task is too big or too complicated, it is simply that the person lacks confidence in their ability, and do not believe that they can do whatever the task is.

2. My Thoughts on the Datomic License

Where the EULA is now and the sense that I get from the Datomic web site... I'm going to pass on it for right now. I'll use PostgreSQL 9.3 with JSON support. Yeah, it's technically not as good, but I know what my rights are.

3. Agile Decompiled: What Is Agile Development?

Many people think that unless you are carrying out Iterative and Incremental releases, Test Driven Development and Pair Programming you are not working as an agile developer. However do you really need to be doing all these things to be working in an agile culture?

4. Git showing file as modified even if it is unchanged

This is a real annoying problem, suppose you want to switch branch with git checkout branchname, you will find that git does not allow you to switch because of uncommitted changes. Here's how to fix it.

5. The Quality Carousel

I just observed yet another conversation on twitter that started with the topic of waste in software development. These discussions seem to spin in circles. They always have, and likely always will. Why? Because they treat quality and value as attributes of what is built, rather than as relationships.

Discover the warning signs of DevOps Dysfunction and learn how to get back on the right track, brought to you in partnership with CA Technologies.
