Make sure you didn't miss anything with this list of the Best of the Week in the Agile Zone (May 30 to June 6). Here they are, in order of popularity:

1. Bro, do you even program? The case of non-programming programmers

It was late at night, when I stumbled on yet another Quora question concerning the topic of “Programmers not programming”. The topic itself always seemed ridiculous to me. What is a programmer if they can’t program?

2. Being Turing Complete Ain't All That and a Bag of Chips

I was talking to someone the other day. He said that given two Turing Complete programming languages, A and B, if you can write a program in A, you can write a similar program in B. Is that true? I suspect not.

3. Async Standups

When you work remotely, you want to have some kind of a standup meeting regularly. In our team, after experimenting with many different approaches, we settled with text-based, asynchronous standups every day.

4. Streamlining Freelance Productivity with 1-person Scrum

"So this post is kind of a tutorial for anyone that feels they could earn better money with less time spent working. I wish I read (or more importantly followed) these directions when I was still freelancing."

5. Agile Decompiled: Stand-up Meetings

In the end as long as the meetings you have are clear and focused and relevant to all parties then, for me, it doesn’t really matter if you are standing up or sitting down.
