London Java meetup discussion

This evening I attended a meetup of the London Java community in a bar in central London.

There were a few familiar faces and some interesting informal discussions.

One discussion that I was lightly involved in revolved around the idea of some agile development practises effectively just being micro-management.

That triggered a memory about something I had read a few months back online.

Here is a link to the blog post by Mike Cohn that I suspect triggered my memory:

The attention grabbing headline is that it is about micro-management, but the important factor is that it is the team that is doing the management.
