Show #74 Kent Beck on Lean Startups, TDD and startups
This week Bob and Pat talk with one of the founders of Agile development: Kent Beck. Kent was there at the beginning when pair programming, test driven development, continuous integration and the rest of the Agile development toolbox began to reshape IT; now he’s back for how the Lean Startup methodology is changing how startups get built. In this wide-ranging interview we talk to Kent about Agile and startups, several of his new projects including his startup, poker workout, and more.
