Productive Workspace
• Open Workspace
• Colocated Developers and Customer
• Consistent Pairing Stations
  • One big screen, 2 keyboards (we use 27” and 24” iMacs)
  • No laptops on the floor
• Visible build monitors
• Everyone can see the backlog in Tracker
• Breakfast, snacks and beverages on hand
• Space for interruptions away from the workspace
Standard Development Workstation

• Keeping tools consistent across machines is critical to
 high-rotation pairing.
• People don’t have their own machines, but sit where
 their project is.
• Machines are reimaged after each project • ASR FTW!
• A brand new machine is ready to use within 30
 minutes of it showing up on the floor.
Why Sustainability Matters
         (for bean counters)
• Predictable delivery is at a premium
• Tired developers introduce bugs
• Developer retention is important!
  • Good developers are never easy to come by
  • Ramp-up is expensive
  • Team changes expose companies to risk
• Crunch time buys short-term productivity at long-
  term cost
Why Developer Happiness
        is Important to the Business

• Leading Indicator: Developer Happiness strongly
 correlated to Developer Productivity
  Grunt Work = Money Wasted
• Happy workers are more focused

What do you mean, Agile?

Manifesto for Agile Software Development
                 We are uncovering better ways of developing
                 software by doing it and helping others do it.
                  Through this work we have come to value:

That’s nice... How do we do that?

• Business Driven: Requirements come from business stakeholders
• Iterative Development, with Short Iterations
• Test/Behavior Driven Development
• Continuous Integration, Continuous Releasability
• Pair Programming
• Productive Work Environment
Business Driven
• Requirements come from business stakeholders
• One designated Customer is empowered to make decisions
• Priorities are set by that Customer
• The Customer can change priorities on anything unstarted
• The Customer accepts the work in fine-grained increments
• The Customer is intimately aware of progress, and projected
  completion dates
• Closing the feedback loop is critical   Accept     Reject
TDD/BDD
• Good tests tell us when we’ve met the customer requirements
• They tell us when we’ve broken behavior that used to work
• They tell us when we haven’t, so we can refactor with impunity
• Writing tests first keeps us from overdesigning/doing things we
  don’t need to do
• Writing tests first forces cleaner API design, because we have to
  call into our own code in order to write it
• It leads to looser coupling and encourages higher cohesion
• Good developer testing keeps the cost of change constant

Test-Drive Everything!

 • Rails, Ruby, of course
 • JavaScript too!
 • Mobile too!
Iterative Development
• Because the customer is seeing the work on a daily basis, the
  feedback cycle is short
• This keeps the cost of change low, by preventing unnecessary
  work
• It allows for new insights to be gained from the work we’ve
  already completed, and for those insights to be incorporated
  into our new code
• Iterations are as short as we can make them
Continuous Integration,
            Continuous Releasability
• Knowing when things break is critical to reducing the cost of
  fixing defects.
  • Keep the build status visible, so you can fix it quickly
  • A broken build is a ‘stop the line’ event
• Continuous releasability does not mean you release every day.
  • It just means you can.
  • Releases can be distracting, so weigh the cost of a release
     against the value it adds to the business.
Pair Programming


• Do we really have to pair?
• Isn’t Pairing Slower?
• I don’t like pairing.
• I’m shy.
• I don’t want to look stupid.
Do we really have to pair?

•Yes, you do.
  • ...but only if you want to be efficient
• This is one of the least-used practices, and one of
  the most important.
• And stop whining! You do it already when you get
  stuck on something.
</rant>
What do developers really do all day?
• Coding
• Reading web pages about coding
• Stuck on some problem, unsure of:
  • The right approach
  • What the API for that object was
  • How SQL indexes are selected
  • How bind(this) works in JavaScript
• Checking email
• Checking news, stock price, staring blankly into space
How does pairing help?
• 80/20 rule: You don’t get stuck, so you spend your time on
 the most interesting part of the code.
• As you eliminate the grunt work (thanks Rails) more of the
 work requires real thinking, and design
• You talk through design, and refine before you code.
• You learn from your pair, everything from design and testing
 techniques to (no)SQL, CSS, and JavaScript tips.
• Focus matters: Your pair keeps you paying attention, and
 can smooth over disruptions
How does pairing help?
• More developers in a smaller space
  • How many truly independent fronts are there in your
    codebase on which you can make progress?
• New team members: You’re really productive the first hour,
 not marginally productive starting two weeks in
• They have a local sherpa to tell them how the code they’re
 working on actually works.
• Knowledge Silos: Your bus number approaches ∞

Pairing Combinations
Team Size
• A single pair has zero communication overhead
• 2-3 pairs have almost no communication
 overhead, as long as pairs are rotated
• 4-5 pairs require a whole additional FTE for
 coordination
• Above 5 pairs, projects really need to be
 subdivided into separate efforts
• And you have to have enough separable work so
 that the additional people are adding value

Client Engagement Model
• Get their Product Owner in our space
• Start as the whole team,
  or work with their existing team
• Help them hire, replacing Pivots as we go
• At the end of the project, they know our
 practices, and their own code base

  • 47. Why Sustainability Matters (for bean counters) • Predictable delivery is at a premium • Tired developers introduce bugs • Developer retention is important! • Good developers are never easy to come by • Ramp-up is expensive • Team changes expose companies to risk • Crunch time buys short-term productivity at long- term cost

  • 77. That’s nice... How do we do that? • Business Driven: Requirements come from business stakeholders • Iterative Development, with Short Iterations • Test/Behavior Driven Development • Continuous Integration, Continuous Releasability • Pair Programming • Productive Work Environment
  • 78. Business Driven • Requirements come from business stakeholders • One designated Customer is empowered to make decisions • Priorities are set by that Customer • The Customer can change priorities on anything unstarted • The Customer accepts the work in fine-grained increments • The Customer is intimately aware of progress, and projected completion dates • Closing the feedback loop is critical Accept Reject
  • 79. TDD/BDD • Good tests tell us when we’ve met the customer requirements • They tell us when we’ve broken behavior that used to work • They tell us when we haven’t, so we can refactor with impunity • Writing tests first keeps us from overdesigning/doing things we don’t need to do • Writing tests first forces cleaner API design, because we have to call into our own code in order to write it • It leads to looser coupling and encourages higher cohesion • Good developer testing keeps the cost of change constant

  • 82. Test-Drive Everything! • Rails, Ruby, of course • JavaScript too! • Mobile too!
  • 83. Iterative Development • Because the customer is seeing the work on a daily basis, the feedback cycle is short • This keeps the cost of change low, by preventing unnecessary work • It allows for new insights to be gained from the work we’ve already completed, and for those insights to be incorporated into our new code • Iterations are as short as we can make them
  • 84. Continuous Integration, Continuous Releasability • Knowing when things break is critical to reducing the cost of fixing defects. • Keep the build status visible, so you can fix it quickly • A broken build is a ‘stop the line’ event • Continuous releasability does not mean you release every day. • It just means you can. • Releases can be distracting, so weigh the cost of a release against the value it adds to the business.
  • 85. Pair Programming • Do we really have to pair? • Isn’t Pairing Slower? • I don’t like pairing. • I’m shy. • I don’t want to look stupid.
  • 86. Do we really have to pair? •Yes, you do. • ...but only if you want to be efficient • This is one of the least-used practices, and one of the most important. • And stop whining! You do it already when you get stuck on something.
  • 88. What do developers really do all day? • Coding • Reading web pages about coding • Stuck on some problem, unsure of: • The right approach • What the API for that object was • How SQL indexes are selected • How bind(this) works in JavaScript • Checking email • Checking news, stock price, staring blankly into space
  • 89. How does pairing help? • 80/20 rule: You don’t get stuck, so you spend your time on the most interesting part of the code. • As you eliminate the grunt work (thanks Rails) more of the work requires real thinking, and design • You talk through design, and refine before you code. • You learn from your pair, everything from design and testing techniques to (no)SQL, CSS, and JavaScript tips. • Focus matters: Your pair keeps you paying attention, and can smooth over disruptions
  • 90. How does pairing help? • More developers in a smaller space • How many truly independent fronts are there in your codebase on which you can make progress? • New team members: You’re really productive the first hour, not marginally productive starting two weeks in • They have a local sherpa to tell them how the code they’re working on actually works. • Knowledge Silos: Your bus number approaches ∞
  • 94. Pairing Combinations ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ?
  • 95. Pairing Combinations ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ?
  • 97. Team Size • A single pair has zero communication overhead • 2-3 pairs have almost no communication overhead, as long as pairs are rotated • 4-5 pairs require a whole additional FTE for coordination • Above 5 pairs, projects really need to be subdivided into separate efforts • And you have to have enough separable work so that the additional people are adding value
