Agility without anxiety

Does deliver early, deliver often equal deliver badly?

Live today Some Reg readers think so. This is what a few of you tell us about agile development: "Often of a lower standard and the system will inevitably be less reliable". "If you don't have good people, you're screwed". "It leads to several wheels being reinvented in disparate ways".

Ouch.

Not everyone thinks it equals "deliver badly": Perforce doesn't, nor do its clients - small names like Salesforce.com or Nvidia. Or the company that literally, actually graphically, elevated team development to an art form: Pixar. That's why we have Perforce's Mark Warren in the studio to discuss how to do agile development properly: why it is needed, the right way to go about agile development, and how to avoid the mistakes that hobble it.

He's joined by Dale Vile from Freeform Dynamics who is here to tell you what you already told him when he researched it. Hey! Don't blame Dale, he's an analyst, it's what they do. His slides are world class. Tim Phillips will be pretending to keep control, and putting your questions to Mark and Dale.

Join us live today at 11:00 BST. During the Regcast you can use our Comment-O-Matic interactive portal to ask questions, agree, disagree, and tell us how agile worked for you. You might even use it to ask: "What, exactly, is a Comment-O-Matic interactive portal?"
