What if we said that there's a list that will help you with software development, or even with your company in general?
It's called Heuristics for Effective Software Development Organizations: A continuously evolving list, and it contains as of this episode 27 nuggets of wisdom for your benefit. It started out as a way to present the values and principles of the Agile Manifesto in a clearer and more contemporary way, although the author, Allen Holub, has added a few things.
Who is Allen Holub? Allen Holub is an internationally recognised software architect and Agile consultant/trainer. He speaks all over the planet about these topics and agile-friendly implementation technology like microservices and incremental architecture, but his bread and butter is in-house training and consulting in how to create highly functional Lean/Agile organizations, and how to design and build robust, highly scalable software architectures suitable for agile environments.
