Re: Scrum And XP
- Hi! If it's just you it should be quite simple. :o)
You could use a scaled-down process like this:
- Create an initial product backlog using a pile of index cards.
- Release a new version every day, based on a whatever backlog items
you finished that day.
- Involve users from the beginning (I assume you're not the only
user?), let them use the system as soon as you achieve a minimum
- Arrange for a weekly meeting or conference call with the users. Use
their feedback to guide your priorities for the upcoming week.
- Use XP practices to keep the code clean and automate all routine
tasks (such as the daily release).
I've created several simple apps in this way. Quite enjoyable & OK quality.
Of course, the best would probably be to find a buddy to pair with.
That will probably lead to better design & more fun.
