A loose gathering of resources and ideas about the Agile Experiment in developing PDF-Import in 2007.


Time Frame

From 5.11.2007: 4-6 weeks


  1. 8.11. - 19.11. (Thu.-Mon.)
  2. 20.11. - 3.12. (Tue.-Mon.)
  3. 4.12. - 17.12. (Tue.-Mon.)

Practices to Adopt


  • Scrum roles (Product Owner, Team, Scrum master)
  • Colocation
  • Team that includes definition, code-writing and testing together
  • Time Boxing
  • Continuous testing
  • Short, fixed-time iterations
  • Daily (or more frequent) integration + builds
  • "Scope" is variable <=> "time", "cost" and "quality" are fix.
  • Regular reflection
