How to introduce Agile into an environment that doesn’t want it

An excellent post describing how to introduce Agile into an environment that doesn’t want it.

Walks through a scenario of a waterfall team in serious trouble, and how he introduces some Agile practices, but doesn’t call them that, nor does he explain why he’s introducing some practices.

Slowly introduces Daily Scrum, Task Board, Retrospectives and begins to foster collaboration.

Well worth the time it takes to read.

Real-time, web based REPL for programmer screening

Very interesting code/compiler site. It’s obviously in an initial state, and no documentation, but still quite impressive.

CoderPad

Choosing Java, it creates a hello world app. Then, you can create other classes in the same ‘file’, and it will compile them. Shows results of execution (assumes a static main method).

It’s target is for evaluating programmers using a real compiler, and therefore more realistic than whiteboard/paper/text editor tests.
