As a consultant helping teams to adopt and adapt agile methods I helped general in-house development departments to adopt “The Eclipse Way”. Some of them are now using and adapting those practices for several years now. Now it is time to reflect.
This session reflects on the experiences adopting “The Eclipse Way”. It presents the practices that are easy to adopt shortly. The main part of the session will focus on those practices that are harder to adopt for typical in-house business application development, like “Consume your own output” or “Community Involvement”. The session presents experiences with those harder practices and ways to realize an efficient agile process following the ideas, values and most practices along “The Eclipse Way”.
