@MichaelBorgwardt You're right that the first link has some good info, but I'm looking for additional resources. I don't fancy putting all my eggs in to one basket.

comment What is Developer Anarchy?
Just watching Fred George's presentation (2nd link in post). He's had a lot of experience with Agile and I'm tending to want to hear what he has to say - pretty sure he's done proper agile before as he's worked with the likes of Kent Beck, Ron Jefferies and Robert Martin.

comment Is it worth it for a developer to be a scrum master? Is it an official designation or?
@Brook I did this too and you are right in that it's difficult to do both, but you can make allowances. I used to only factor in half as much time for myself compared to the other developers as I knew my time would be taken up with other things. This approach worked quite well, although you may need to tweak the amount of time you spend on each task depending on the environment, project and people.

To some extent I agree with you - in principle what you say is correct, but this is more about common sense, thinking clearly and understanding the Agile mentality rather than hardcore brain use - it's a different set of skills in use so actually having someone with the answers you can ask questions of and learn from is very beneficial. I would say, however, to get the most from the training you should do some agile first, read up on it, practise it a bit then you will be more prepared and have better questions to ask of your trainer

comment Secure cloud based code storage and syncing across multiple computers
I'm happy for my files not to sync whilst I'm in transit, but when there is a connection I want instant auto sync. This is what happens with dropbox - I can work on the train but when I back at home and open my laptop, one the network connection is made the files sync and are on my desktop almost instantly.
