One of the many wonderful things about agile is the number of areas that it can be expanded to, or introduced to, with just as much success as traditional software development. This podcast features a conversation between Bob Payne and Dave Thomas as they discuss everything from software to art.
I spoke with Dave Thomas at the RailsEdge in Reston Virginia. We talk about his new book Agile Web Development With Rails and the Erlang book that is in the pipeline for the Pragmatic Bookshelf.
The most striking feature of this podcast is the range of topics that we discuss. The second half of the discussion explores music, photography, monoculture and education.
