Time: Wednesday 11:30 - 12:20

Location: Lille Sal

Abstract: "Simple" is a word often used in agile software development. Terms like YAGNI and "do the simplest thing that can possibly work". It is easy to forget, however, that Simple is often Hard! So what's hard about becoming an agile software developer, where are the bumps in the ride? In this talk I'm going to go through some aspects of agile software development that many developers find to be hard, or even unpleasant initially.
