Extreme Programming Library

I ran across this resource and
while I neither an adherent nor a firm believer in Extreme Programming practices,
many of the articles presented here are good reading.

This one, “The Source
Code is the Design
“, is particularly interesting, and a good argument for
why I don’t like XP for major projects. For minor fire fighting and building utilities,
XP has its strength, but for major software projects I believe in frameworks and extensible
architectures more than the “Simplest Fix for the Problem” mentality of
XP.
