She wants to pair…
Instead the developers…
Don’t think it’s important…
That doesn’t sound very Agile…
When the developers break the acceptance
tests…
They don’t bother to fix them…
Dawn thinks it’s the developers responsibility
to fix the tests…
The developers think that if Dawn wants to
write tests, she should fix them…
That doesn’t sound very Agile…
The quality of the software suffers from a lack
of communication…
If only things could be better...
