comment Backend devs put down by user stories
@AlanShutko - exactly. "One person's front end is another person's back end" right? This is one of the reasons why I dislike slang like "back end" and "front end" especially when talking about multiple components in a system. Your point is extremely important! Even "full stack" is a relative term that can mean different things in different parts of a system!

comment how can we have a person to allot and track tasks in agile development
Ok... so what was the action item your team decided on to help resolve this problem? To me it sounds like you need to do some more digging. My point is, why are you asking strangers on Programmers.se when you should be asking your team? There is no single right answer to this question, though some ideas will work better or worse than others. But if the context isn't exactly the same then your results will vary. Agile is as much about the journey as it is about the destination.

What came out during your retrospective? Did the team have any ideas for how to address these problems? It sounds like there are probably multiple root causes...

comment When does pair programming work for you? When should you avoid it?
Trying to understand the value and logic of closing this question three years after it was clearly answered objectively with references to empirical research. Of all practices common to Agile, this is one of the most researched and documented. Does the wording of the question need to be changed in some way? Have expectations/standards changed in the three years since it was published?

comment As an lone, Agile (PXP/PSP) developer what is the proper structure for a formal project post-mortem?
Isn't there a script in PSP for this? Perhaps an extension or modification of the PIP template?

comment How do I handle a user story that I complete, but with compromise and need to revisit?
@ProfK This is strategic technical debt. Remember that not all technical debt is negative or bad. In this case you changed the system so that you could ship today knowing that you would need to make a change later. This is an excellent example of taking on strategic technical debt -- in moderation a good thing.

Good advice. Keep in mind that there is nothing in the agile manifesto about "user stories" and they are just a popular practice that came about with specific processes. You can be just as agile with user stories as you can without..

comment Software Architecture Modelling
@AndreasHuppert, I didn't say impossible. But it can be difficult and depending on what views you plan to depict, unnatural. With so many diagrams to choose from using a slimmed down version as you mention is a very good idea. The second half of George Fairbanks' book "Just Enough Software Architecture" gives UML for software architecture a fair and thorough treatment.
