Extreme Programming (XP) provides a set of principles and practices to apply to the problems of software development. But different situations require different solutions and some practices may yield more or less value depending on circumstance. For example, test driven development is less helpful when exploring a new API or platform — it may require days of reading and hacking to get a single test to pass. Other practices such as a daily stand-up meeting or continuous integration can become more important as compensation for the lack of focus in such tasks. In this presentation Marc Henderson and Michael Buckley will introduce the different Extreme Programming profiles that they’ve observed and discuss different situations where these profiles may be applicable.
