Code. UX. Databases. Leadership. Agile done right (for some value of right). Videogames, adventures, good food. Sometimes I write books (some people like 'em and some people don't -- that's cool, no worries).

comment How to write “SMART” Objectives as an agile developer?
In this Performance Management scheme, are employees being rated/reviewed by levels above yours, or does the evaluation in relation to the SMART goals stop within your group? I'm asking because if you're writing the SMART goals so that they're truly useful for yourselves, that's one answer, but if you're writing them for evaluative purposes by people who don't understand Agile, that's another. (Been there, done that, want to give you a useful answer :))

comment Does the use of personas in Agile have any value during implementation?
Are you talking about the value of the developer understanding what's in specific personae, when developing, as opposed to simply the name of the user performing the action? (e.g. Willow fears her spells will go awry, Xander fears he is invisible, and knowing those particular aspects of the personae fundamentally alter the way the developer implements the particular story, rather than just being stand-in names)

comment Do you use Instant Messaging to communicate during your day with your fellow devs?
Agreed on all counts. My team (3 on-site, 4 remote) has a HipChat account with rooms we're all in, and the ability to pop out into 1:1 as necessary.

comment 2 Years Work Experience, Should I treat it like im a College Graduate?
Your two years of post-college experience in a typical workplace is precisely what keeps you from being considered an entry-level/fresh out of college worker. You'd be doing yourself a huge disservice by not listing it, talking about it, building on it.
