The Software Development Article Directory has just registered its 700th article with “What Have the Romans Ever Done for Us?” ;o) This article is an interesting digression of the differences between software development and software engineering that evolves in a comparison of the agile and planned approaches to software development using the differences between the Greek and Roman civilisations.
I am currently preparing the Autumn and Winter issues and I have recently had the chance to get the cooperation of some agile practitioners:
- Rachel Davies that has participated to the creation of the Paircoaching.net association of agile consultants will provide an article on agile retrospectives. I am very happy to collaborate again with Rachel after its article on Agile Requirements published in the Fall 2005 issue.
- Jens Norin will write an article on a lean approach to configuration management.
- Tamara Sulaiman will look on the value angle of agile projects with experience gained working on Earned Value Management in agile projects
Stay tuned for a Methods & Tools Autumn edition full of practical and expert knowledge.
In this issue you will find an interesting experience report on software process improvement, a detailed how-to article on modelling by one of the father of Information Engineering, an insightful reflection on how to build trust in a hierarchy relationship and finally a approach to improve the release of software products.

* Process Improvement – Is it a Lottery?
