I think a lot of people are afraid of writing code and then they go and kind of talk about it … “oh I first have to write my UML diagrams” … Wrong! Just open the freaking editor and start coding.
Erik Meijer, GOTO 2015 • One Hacker Way
Another interesting part of this post is Erik’s rant on Agile and Scrum. I hope I can enable some Hacker Spirit in the development teams I serve. Personally, I see lots of overlap in good Scrum and Erik’s “Hacker Way” values.
It would be interesting to compare these values to “good” Scrum; that is an incarnation of Scrum that breaths the Scrum values of courage, respect, commitment, focus and openness.
|Scrum value||Hacker way value|
|Focus||Focus on impact|
|Respect||Build Social Value|
