“During this discussion, you’ll notice there’s no mention of the word “version”. There’s no “coming up in version 2”. Instead, we sort the stories we have by priority and start at the top. As they are completed, they are “released”. (Within reason, of course. From a marketing perspective, releasing a new feature every two weeks can be just as detrimental as not releasing any for three years.) I don’t mind admitting this discussion got me a little giddy, not least because it means a potentially earlier release date than we had planned. It’s pretty liberating in some respects. There’s no looming deadline and it puts less pressure on the developers, neither of whom need this kind of pressure to prove their mettle. Instead, it puts more planning on my friend and I to plan things properly and make sure the important stuff is done first and not left until the last minute.”
