Make sure you didn't miss anything with this list of the Best of the Week in the Agile Zone (Mar. 14 to Mar. 20). Here they are, in order of popularity:

1. The Programmer Productivity Paradox

Programmers seem to be fairly productive people.

2. The 10 Commandments of Programming

4. Estimation by stuffing things into boxes

I’ve started using an approach for software project estimation that so far is proving to be fairly transparent, quick and reliable.

5. Psychology and the Agile Methodology
