Quotes from Scrum and XP from the Trenches by Henrik Kniberg

Scrum and XP from the Trenches by Henrik Kniberg

Disclaimer: exported by readmill in no particular order :(

If the product owner has a technical background he might add stories such as “Add indexes to the Events table”. Why does he wa nt this? The real underlying goal is probably something like “speed u p the search event form in the back office

The distinction is quite simple. Stories are deliver able stuff that the product owner cares about. Tasks are non-deliverable stuff, or stuff that the product owner doesn’t care about.

Normally the product owner starts the meeting by summarizing his goal for the sprint and the most important stories. Next , the team goes through and time-estimates each story, starting with the most important one. As they do this, they will come up with important scope questions – “does this ‘delete user’ story include going through each pending transaction for that user and canceling it?’” In some cases the answers will be surprising to the team, prompting them to change

A technical challenge we give to our Ruby on Rails applicants in order to evaluate their coding proficiency.Job description: or

Update: I no longer work for the company and this challenge is no longer used, but I'll leave the gist here in case people want to practice.

Alphasights Technical Challenge

  • When a member is created, all the heading (h1-h3) values are pulled in from the website to that members profile.
  • The website url is shortened (e.g. using
  • After the member has been added, I can define their friendships with other existing members. Friendships are bi-directional i.e. If Sasha is a friend of Ash, Ash is always a friend of Sasha as well.
You can’t perform that action at this time.
