This talks discusses 7 deadly sins of software development, specifically relevant for Agile teams. It’s pretty clear when you fail as a start-up, where you and your friend invested last savings. The product is not ready or just doesn’t get sold, the money’s gone, you open LinkedIn to search for a job suitable for an “experienced software engineer with entrepreneurial background”. It is way more tricky in a big company with a well-established product. Something is going on, the code is being written, meetings happen one after another, but the feeling of frustration is still there. Where are we going? Are we failing or succeeding? What will happen with the product in the future ? I had this moments myself especially when I started working in a well known and praised Scrum development framework.
