You've been hearing a lot about agile software development, get started with the eBook: Agile Product Development from 321 Gang

Make sure you didn't miss anything with this list of the Best of the Week in the Agile Zone (November 28 - December 05). Here they are, in order of popularity:

1. Developer Career Journeys: Johanna Rothman

  • Last month, we published profiles of the development careers of four of our DZone MVBs. Today we're featuring the story of Johanna Rothman, full-time developer turned author and Agile Management Consultant.

2. A Healthy Way of Living with a Sedentary Job

  • I believe with just a few changes you can achieve a healthier lifestyle that will last for a lifetime instead of lasting for just a few months. Overall, the choice is yours. Nothing in this blog post is new information. It is just what one guy did that made a major impact in my well-being. I hope this helps!

3. 10 Project Metrics to Track

  • 10 Project Metrics that you can easily obtain to feed into a Business Process Improvement cycle

4. What is Product Management?

  • Product management is a multi-faceted, complex discipline that can be difficult to grasp and hard to master. This post shares my take on what product management is and what it takes to work as an effective product manager and product owner. It presents a product management framework that helps you define specific product roles and identify gaps in your product knowledge.

5. Sync dotfiles with GitHub

  • Hosting your dotfiles on a site like GitHub has several advantages. Centralization means you can easily sync your configuration between any number of machines that you use regularly. Having them publicly available means that you can easily share them with other developers. Versioning them makes it easy to roll back a recent change.
