      XP Incremental Design Practices Roundtable

      One of the simplifying assumptions in Extreme Programming is the
      concept of Incremental Design, i.e. investing a little time each day
      in the design of your software (in the past, this was referred to as
      Simple Design). By making small investments in your software design
      each day, an XP team often times will spend as much effort on software
      design as a team using a traditional design approach. In the case of
      an XP team, the design investment is spread out across the entire
      project. While this assumption simplifies matters and speeds up the
      development process, it does take new skills and techniques to carry
      out and end up with a robust and flexible system. Executed poorly,
      Incremental Design can lead to a brittle, inflexible software
      architecture which costs more to maintain and extend than if one had
      started with a more traditional design approach.

      In this roundtable, we walk talk about the technical AND social
      practices needed to practice Incremental Design. In addition, we will
      discuss how to balance the need for emergent design with larger
      architectural concerns and the proper role (and volume) of
      documentation. Please join us for a lively and entertaining
      discussion on software design techniques used on an XP team.

      The meeting will be held at SAIC on Campus Point Dr.
      (http://xpsd.org/SAICDirections) from 6-7:30 PM on Thursday, February
      1st. Please RSVP to nettletonc@... if you wish to attend. If you
      are not a U.S. citizen, bring your passport with you to the meeting.
