Though we live in an era in which any can (any many do) become software developers without any formal training, we actually do have a standard for software engineers. This standard, which is known as the Software Engineering Body of Knowledge, is not intended to exclude anyone from creating software. Instead, it defines the goals for which we strive, no matter how or why we are creating software.

Episode 240: How Fast is Fast Enough?

It’s supposed to be fast. At least, we are supposed to think of Agile methods as fast. A new build every week, every day, every hour (if possible). But speed is more a tool than than an end. Furthermore, how you use the speed depends on what you are trying to achieve.
