      Are Agile Methodologies Really Different?

      Sunday, 26 October - 8:30-17:00 Full day

      With Adaptive Software Development, Crystal, Extreme Programming,
      Feature Driven Development, Lean Development, and Scrum the ecosystem of
      agile methods seems to stabilize. Though they all use different
      metaphors and approaches to software development, their hands-on results
      are so similar that readers may ask themselves, whether they are really
      different methodologies. Practitioners have had the best results
      combining elements of different agile methodologies - a possibility that
      defines a common species in biology.

      This sequel to last year's OOPSLA workshop "Commonalities of Agile
      Methodologies" explores this question in depth in a highly interactive
      setting. It may work on questions like "What is different anyhow and
      why?", "What forces drive particular solutions?", or "How does a
      solution deal with limitations?".



      Agile Contracts

      Monday, 27 October - 8:30-17:00 Full day

      Agile Contracts. Are these two words an oxymoron? Contracts have played
      a very important role in the business of software development; in fact,
      much of this work is in fact done 'under contract'. Organizations
      adopting agile methodologies are finding it hard to write contracts for
      software development without compromising the core values and practices.
      The Agile Contracts workshop is your chance to help the agile community
      identify ways contracts can be structured and worded to support agile
      software development.

      Come prepared to participate! Come and participate in the discussion
      about how to structure agile software development contracts and take
      away many great ideas, no matter which side of a software development
      contract you find yourself.

      "I learned more from this workshop than from any other session," said
      one Agile Contracts Workshop participant at XP 2003. Use gaming theory
      to understand the motivations of contracting parties. Share examples of
      a contract structure, which had either good or bad effects on agile
      software development. Work with a small team to devise a contracting
      strategy, which supports agile software development.

      Leave a Legacy. The good ideas generated in this workshop will be posted
      to the web for all to see.
