eXtreme Programming = Marketing Concept A few good ideas not strikingly unknown to senior developers, packaged up to be sold as books. Though probably has a useful marketing function for developers wanting to convince their managers of a change in practises. [ I thought I was getting cynical, now I have proof :^) ] That said, if the good concepts are not obvious then I'm happy that someone is selling them! Regards, Brett.

Like we need another "extreme" anything? I like this: Extreme Programming (XP) is actually a deliberate and disciplined approach to software development. That doesn't sound too extreme. Sounds cautious to me. Marketing cack, ahoy!
