Details: "Agile: Scaling Up Without Bogging Down"

Wondering about how to apply the agile practices to your very small team? Why things aren't working as you grow? How to work in teams of teams where development involves scores of people?

"Agile: Scaling up without bogging down" is an overview of how the agile practices work in the real world at various scales. Using examples, stories, and diagrams, you'll learn how the pieces fit together -- and can scale both up and down -- depending on your unique situation.

Agile practices covered will include: TDD, Pair-Programming, Co-location, Continuous Integration, System Architecture, Daily Scrums, Release Planning, backlogs, and sustainable pace.
