I’ve been practicing and coaching Agile in one guise or another for nearly a decade. After a year spent travelling in Australia and New Zealand I was interested in a fresh way of developing software. Around that time I discovered the Portland Pattern Repository with Unit Testing, Pair Programming and Test Driven Development. From that day I became a zealot, eager to share these amazing ideas with my colleagues and team mates. Amazingly inspite of some my early eagerness many people weren’t open to trying these new ideas. From that experience I’ve noticed a number of common adoption anti-patterns or Agile Smells.
