When to use XP RRS feed

  • Question

  • I was asked in one of the other threads when I thought the proper context for using XP existed.

    Since it didn't really relate to that thread I thought I would extract it out in to a blog.

    It is here.

    I would be interested in feedback to see if you agree or have a different twist on it.

  • I try adding feedback to your blog but it kept failing.

    I disagree strongly with needing to be a domain expert.

  • Sorry, I am not sure why it failed.

    I can maybe take a guess at why you would say you do not need to be a domain expert, since XP calls for one to be handy 24/7.

    I listed it though because I have not beeen in an environment where that was not true.  The teams have been small and dedicated to the same application long enough to become domain experts.

  • Well ... would that not be changing the concept of XP in order to disagree with it?

    My baked alaska recipe calls for vanilla ice cream.

    Last month I made it with strawberry ice cream and noone liked it....

    Terrible Recipe.

    :)

  • I guess we could, but I am stating what I have seen people do when it has work, not what the recipe calls for.

    Just like the RUP, I have seen it be successful as the UP.  The problem with the RUP, is you never make it into the oven, because you would be adding ingredients all day.

    I agree you are right when it comes to what the books say should be there, but I have not seen it happen.

    If you have, that's cool.  Tell us about it.
