How to have two week release cycles with a large number number of developers and a potentially old version control system.
Build For Disable
Build feature sets so that they can easily be disabled so that incomplete features can still be continuously integrated.
This idea has intrigued me since I first read it. In nearly all development life cycles, code not ready, or features not ready are simply never merged into the production builds. This makes merging more and more difficult the longer the feature takes to complete. This causes the developers of the long-winded feature to constantly be adapting to other developers code while those other developers never are adapting to the big features until they are ready for prime time. Why can’t we continuously work together?
