  • How To Avoid Big Upfront Design (Dave Farley) [Architecture, Continuous Delivery, Evolutionary Design] [Duration: 0:18:00] In this episode, Dave Farley, describes how to avoid big up-front design, but also how to do enough design to make progress safely and allow us the freedom to learn and adapt our designs as we learn.
  • The Root Causes of Product Failure (Marty Cagan) [Product, Product Strategy, Product Team] [Duration: 0:49:00] Interesting talk on how the best companies and product teams work.
  • TDD Discipline - Thinking Ahead Without Coding Ahead (Jason Gorman) [Technical Practices, XP, tdd] [Duration: 0:11:00] Jason Gorman demonstrates a very common mistake TDD newbies make - writing the code you \*believe\* is required, instead of just the code needed to pass your tests.
