Re: [scrumdevelopment] Re:Agile in mainframe development environments
- Hi All,
Thank you for the answers. I am not directly involved in the mainframe/host based project so I need to ask them the same questions. I would send them in the list as I think the discussions would be useful for people who would be faced with introducing agile on the same situation.

Working in the MidFrame environment, and attempting Agile practices, what I have found is that the tools for my (RPG) language are poor for working in an Agile manner.

The biggest problem - without methods on an instantiated Object, you cannot code as you might really want.
Encapsulation is possible, and good DRY techniques. Performance is not a problem since the hardware can handle existing bad code practices easily.
We can dialog more off-list if you want.
