Episode Info:

SPaMCAST 467 features our essay on value. Value is the most talked about and least understood concept in Agile. In terms of software development, enhancements, and maintenance, the value of a piece of work is the worth of the outcome that results from doing the work.

In the second position is Jeremy Berriault and the QA Corner!  Jeremy discusses testing in difficult situations. Are there differences? Jeremy has the answers!

Gene Hughson completes the cast by bringing a discussion of a recent missive, Management, Simple and Wrong – Semantics, Systems, and Self-Correction.  This entry at  Form Follows Function even includes a reference to Snidely Whiplash!
