Twenty Years of XP, Now What? - with Chet Hendrickson
Toronto Agile Community is excited to bring a new webinar to you!
It has been a little over 20 years since the creation of Extreme Programming on the Chrysler C3 project. Although Scrum has replaced it in mindshare in recent years, XP still has much to teach us. In this talk, Chet Hendrickson, one of the original XP gang, will look back a little at where XP came from, and forward to where it may be heading. And, why it is still important to understand the importance of good technical practice. While this webinar speaks more to programmers, every member or manager of an Agile team will be able to grasp the need and benefits of technical practices.
Chet Hendrickson has been involved with Agile Software Development since 1996 when as a member of Chrysler’s C3 project he helped develop Extreme Programming. In 2000, Ron Jeffries, Ann Anderson, and Chet wrote Extreme Programming Installed. It detailed XP’s core practices, how to do them, and how they work together to help teams be successful. Chet is the first signatory to the Agile Manifesto.
Ron and Chet were the curators of the Scrum Alliance’s Agile Atlas website and in that function created the Alliance’s official Scrum description, Core Scrum.
Chet and Ron Jeffries often work together and are popular conference speakers, bringing an interesting mix of humor and deep knowledge, and the odd cat picture. They are a fixture at the Agile Alliance’s annual conference, Agile 20xx, as presenters in the Stalwarts track.
