I Rock, I Suck, I am - Jumpstart Your Journey to Agile - RailsConf

So you’ve read Kent Beck’s white book and heard him speak at RailsConf 2008.

Agile yet?

Why not? Being Agile is not a destination or a happening. It’s a journey.

It took me 6 years, 4 companies, 6 jobs and 11-ish projects to make that journey. Now I feel confident enough to say that every day I am an Agile Engineer. Along the way I’ve spotted some patterns in philosophy, environment and tactics that can help jump-start a willing programmer down this path.

Like any journey, having an experienced guide is a good idea. Come listen to what one engineer has learned to see if it helps you.
