Agile Uprising is a purpose-built network that focuses on the advancement of the agile mindset and global professional networking between and among practicing agilists.

 

This is a group founded by passionate practitioners for passionate practitioners, and not a revenue generating organization.

In our 13th interview with the Agile Manifesto Signatories, we were lucky to speak with Stephen Mellor.  Stephen sits with our hosts Ryan Lockard and James Gifford to discuss his background, his memories of the manifesto, and his current work with the Industrial Internet Consortium.

Hear Stephen's history with modeling, executable UML, and is views on software/architecture. Also, learn why Stephen felt his need to be at the event in Snowbird was to be (as he puts it) a "spy".

This interview is part of a larger series where @AgileUprising is attempting to interview the Agile Manifesto signatories.  You can the project status and links to prior interviews, here.

In this episode, we are "very excited" to welcome Martin Fowler (@MartinFowler) to the show.  Martin shares his story with our host, Ryan Lockard (@AgilePHL), covering his early days with Extreme Programming on C3 with Kent Beck, his first engagement with Thoughtworks (@thoughtworks) and of course his time with the Manifesto in Snowbird.  

While Martin admits to having little memory of Snowbird, he does provide a lot of new insight not heard in our prior interviews.  Specifically his work on the paper "The New Methodology" and his work with the XP Leaders Conference that pre-dated Snowbird.  While the conversation only briefly touches on Martin's memory of Snowbird, we spend about half our time discussing the state of Agile and Martin's unique wishes for emerging agile practitioners and developers.  In this conversation we discuss Martin's paper, "Flaccid Scrum".
