What eXtreme Programming is NOT:

Over a period of time I encountered people who said they follow the eXtreme Programming practices. With more analysis what I found was startling as Its quite often misused. xP is simple to implement and complex to understand its' essence. What XP is not is:

  • An excuse to not follow any process

  • To not apply design patterns

  • Collective ownership? Aha! Now I can change what I think the way it should be.

  • Lets scratch each others back and we will be alright

  • Scalability? We do not care.
