In this episode we continue the discussion with Ted, Jessica, and Glenn while at the CodeMash conference in Sandusky, Ohio, and it’s all about transitioning to agile. How do you get organizational buy in? What are the agile anti-patterns that make agile projects fail? How does an individual get started with agile, including agile software engineering?

About the guests:
Ted is an Architectural Consultant with Neudesic, LLC. He lives out of a suitcase, travels with four laptops, eight mobile devices, three tablets, and enough cables to restock a small electronics store. He pays taxes in the Pacific Northwest with his wife Charlotte, and occasionally wonders who these two nearly-grown men living in his house are, though they keep calling him “Dad” as if that’s supposed to be a hint.
Jessica spent twelve years in enterprise application development before sneaking off to work for a startup. She loves the St. Louis, MO, user groups and single-malt scotch, preferably at the same time. Two school-age daughters remind her that life, like agile development, is all about embracing change.
Glenn is a PM at Microsoft working on support for node.js in Windows and Azure. Glenn has a breadth of experience both inside and outside Microsoft developing software solutions for ISVs and the enterprise. Glenn has been a passionate supporter of open source and has been active in involving folks from the community in the development of software at Microsoft. This has included shipping products under open source licenses, as well as assisting other teams looking to do so. Glenn is also a lover of community and a frequent speaker at local and international events and user groups.
