Heading to D.C. to demonstrate One-Size-Fits-One
Tyler and I will be presenting the fruits of some of Obtiva's Rails work at Agile 2007. We have delivered several planning and tracking tools for software development teams using Rails over the last six months. Through these engagements, we discovered that Rails proficiency and Agile coaching are a killer combination for creating planning tools that you can adapt alongside your process. While there are plenty of one-size-fits-all agile planning tools out there, they often do too much, too little, or can't adapt to your needs. If you're an agile team using planning and tracking software (rather than Excel or index cards), you need software that's actually soft, like an agile process.
If you follow a
methodology out of the box, you will have one that fits some project in the
world, but probably not yours.
