Subject [Jdo Wiki] Update of "DevelopmentMethodology" by BrianTopping
Date Wed, 06 Apr 2005 20:05:08 GMT
Dear Wiki user,

You have subscribed to a wiki page or wiki category on "Jdo Wiki" for change notification.

The following page has been changed by BrianTopping:
http://wiki.apache.org/jdo/DevelopmentMethodology

New page:
''This document considers whether a development process such as eXtreme Programming might
help us meet our goals more successfully than our current process.  ''

No matter how you choose to label it, all projects have a development process.  Projects that
document their development process often find themselves to be more successful because particpants
can help themselves when need arises.  Every project has different goals and team members,
so no one process fits all projects.  

If you haven't read much about eXtreme Programming, I would encourage you to consider whether
this could work for us, minus the cheerleading and rigor.  We aren't a centralized crew (I
always see rainbows when I think of "team programming" anyway), we don't have a traditional
customer (although we might do well to define one), so many of the components of their process
should not be taken at face value.  

If we were just to focus on the development cycle and their use of task cards and frequent
releases, we might collectively find that we make more organized and focused progres.  There
is a very good program called [http://www.xplanner.org XPlanner] that would work very well
for organizing thoughts and tasks for a distributed team.  I'm not sure if Apache infrastructure
can support J2EE deployments yet though.  If not, I would be happy to host it.
