Another sold out Agile Yorkshire this month saw two talks each with a vastly different focus to the other. The thirty minute slot was filled by Nick McKenna giving an experience report of a project he was recently involved with, the following one hour talk was a very developer focused 'Pragmatic Dependency Injection' given by Ian Russell'.
Continuing with Agile Yorkshire's recent theme of agile in the public sector, Nick Mckenna gave a report of a successful agile project delivering a system for the Ministry of Justice.
The project had a fixed deadline, however there was flexibility in scope, with the MoJ buying time from the supplier rather than having a contract fixed to functional deliverables, the project was delivered on time and within budget. In an environment of publicity being given to government IT project failures, it is good to see the success stories too.
