|Which Agile tools do you use??
What is their benefit to you?
When do you apply them?
What are the risks of AgileTooling?
Which agile tools would you like to use or would you expect to add value to your agile existance?
I'm not sure if the proposer is thinking of programming tools (if so, I'll fork this one off into a separate entry on IdeasForSessions) or tools in a wider sense. This week I noticed there is the first conference on wikis. I'd like to discuss experiences with communication devices such as mailing lists, wikis, web-reports, planning and tracking systems. Mainly wikis though. Since 1999 I've been leaving a trail of wikis whereever I go. Some vibrant (this wiki seems to become one), some slowly sustaining (xp-nl, where I was recently surprised to see non-regulars update their profiles for instance), some failing (wiki's seem to need a large community to thrive. Internal corporate wikis have a hard time reaching critical mass). --WillemVanDenEnde
I fully agree with Willem. To me, wikis are the corner stone of AgileTooling. Hence, many subjects can be discussed:
I was not thinking of programming tools, or even technical tools in particular. I was thinking of the total collection of agile tools including technical as well as games, roleplay, facilitation, theatre, communication tools or other techniques.
Ok, Thanks for clearing that up, dear Anonymous. Currently, my favourite 'tools' are Retrospective, TemperatureReading, StandUp, IterationPlanning and Wiki is climbing back up the list, as this one seems to be springing to life :-). Programming without TestFirstProgramming also seems a bad idea now. And of course, not to forget other Satir tools besides the temperature reading :-) --WillemVanDenEnde
I 'm not sure everyone here knows about FitNesse (a wiki from ObjectMentor). Those who do I guess will share my feeling that this tool is highly valuable in an agile context. I use it daily for about one year now and I think this tool should grow in acceptance among developpement teams. Step by step articles can be found here http://www.sdmagazine.com/columnists/martin/ to learn FitNesse. They range from <
During the session, I mentioned a comment on Vincent Massol's blog about using Ruby for automatic build scripts. Here it is, look for comment by John Carter:
He talk about the tsort module which seems very valuable for such scripts.
