What happens when the bubonic ice melts?

There's a lot of material on the web about XP but most ofit is based on the first edition. One of the few descriptions I knowof that takes account of the second edition is a paper on (PDF) by Michele Marchesi who hosted the original XP conferences inSardinia. For discussion on XP there is a .

A rolling death smog that suffocates millions.

It is. Many people perceive climate change as a sort of moral and economic debt, accumulated since the beginning of the Industrial Revolution and now come due after several centuries — a helpful perspective, in a way, since it is the carbon-burning processes that began in 18th-century England that lit the fuse of everything that followed. But more than half of the carbon humanity has exhaled into the atmosphere in its entire history has been emitted in just the past three decades; since the end of World War II, the figure is 85 percent. Which means that, in the length of a single generation, global warming has brought us to the brink of planetary catastrophe, and that the story of the industrial world’s kamikaze mission is also the story of a single lifetime. My father’s, for instance: born in 1938, among his first memories the news of Pearl Harbor and the mythic Air Force of the propaganda films that followed, films that doubled as advertisements for imperial-American industrial might; and among his last memories the coverage of the desperate signing of the Paris climate accords on cable news, ten weeks before he died of lung cancer last July. Or my mother’s: born in 1945, to German Jews fleeing the smokestacks through which their relatives were incinerated, now enjoying her 72nd year in an American commodity paradise, a paradise supported by the supply chains of an industrialized developing world. She has been smoking for 57 of those years, unfiltered.

Kent Beck edited a multi-colored series of books on extremeprogramming around the turn of the century, if forced to pick one tosuggest I'd go for the ,remember that like most material it's based on the first edition.

COMPANY GROWTH: 300% growth in client base

Scrum concentrates on the management aspects of softwaredevelopment, dividing development into thirty day iterations (called'sprints') and applying closer monitoring and control with daily scrummeetings. It places much less emphasis on engineering practices andmany people combine its project management approach with extremeprogramming's engineering practices. (XP's management practices aren'treally very different.)
