It seems I’ve finally got over last year’s injuries and managed to get into a solid rhythm of running every other day. I’ve also started to break the habit of always listening to Pete Tong et al whilst I run and instead try and add to my understanding and knowledge of Agile development and methodologies by listening to a range of different podcasts. So what I’d thought I’d do is from time to time list some of the more interesting podcasts I’ve listened to and post links for others to download.
Today’s podcast was an interview of Assembla.com (of which i’m a Huge fan) President Andy Singleton by Jon Udell. Andy presents a number of interesting view-points on the topic of managing distributed agile projects. I found his comments on not interviewing and not estimating schedules to be particularly interesting. This is an extremely entertaining podcast and well worth a listen to for anyone interested in how agile methods can be applied to distributed teams. The podcast can be downloaded here.
Podcast running time 40 minutes (enough for my run and warm-down)
I ran this route whilst listening. Lovely bush trail with very steep scree slopes, but picturesque countryside.
