      Good day to everyone,
      I'm new to this group since I want to learn more about XP and hwo it is used, improved, bent, etc in places that do agile development or just claim to do so.

      For the last 5.5 years I've been working mostly on waterfall projects that all had the usual problems of being late and over budget to some degree.

      One time where I had 8 weeks sitting in one room with the customer, being able to ask questions and get feedback in a matter of minutes to implement a proof of concept, the work resulted in a further order for a project (most likely to become waterfall again).

      So I was already allowed to peek into the world of agile project execution.

      After going through some books, blogs and websites in the last few months I started wondering how developers on the lookout for new job can determine if the company they are interviewing with, is not a fake agile shop.

      Is it as easy as saying: "Please show me your open workspace. Where is the planning board? Can I see you devs pair programming? Where's your on-site customer?"

      Are there other indicators for good (and bad) agile teams?

      Markus
