Over the last 2 years, I have become a voracious reader thanks, in no small part, to my treadmill and kindle/iPad. I retired my kindle about 10 months ago when the iPad came out. One device to play music and read. You can’t beat it. Enough of the Apple commercial. This morning, as I was doing my usual routine of imitating a gerbil on a habiwheel, I noticed that my list of blogs has grown quite lengthy. There is quite a variety of blogs that I try to go through every morning. The topics range from local news to my pastor to Seth Godin (not necessarily in that order). I thought I would share some of them with you over the course of the next few weeks to get your feedback on what blogs you might recommend.
As most of you know, I have been doing some reading, research, and working with Scrum. I wish I had more chances to use it, but trying to sell clients in the Midwest that thisRugbything is going to work is tough. I consistently read five notable blogs authored by Agile evangilists:
- http://blog.mountaingoatsoftware.com/, Mike Cohn – Mountain Goat Software. Mike is currently the Chairman of the Board of Directors of Scrum Alliance. Mike has also written several books about software development using Scrum.
- http://alistair.cockburn.us/Blog?view=dlist, Alistair Cockbuun – Described the Crystal family of software methodologies and books, including Crystal Clear. Signed the original Manifesto for Agile Software Development.
- http://Kenschwaber.wordpress.com, Ken Schwaber is one of the original creators of Scrum, Scrum Alliance, Scrum.org, and several books about Scrum. Signed the original Manifesto for Agile Software Development.
- http://scrum.jeffsutherland.com/, Jeff Sutherland is one of the creators of Scrum. Signed the original Manifesto for Agile Software Development.
- http://www.allaboutagile.com/ , Kelly Waters is the author. This is a blog that I have found over the last few days, and from what I read, has a variety of content.
Any suggestions on other blogs?
Thanks for coming in today.
