Thoughts on development methodologies: "One thing is already clear: I'm pretty sure the Rational Unified Process (RUP) is just not for me. Every time I investigate methodologies I run across RUP. This time I even bought a book about it, but the following snippet from the preface scared me away before I even got started:

'This book is not the complete Rational Unified Process. Rather, it is a small subset to introduce the RUP.'

This 'introduction' is over 300 pages long! Sorry, but I can't get myself interested in anything that heavy. I see some excellent principles when I scan those pages, but I am inclined to think that any process that large is inherently not very agile. Like I said, I don't like to criticize things I don't understand, but in this case I'll have to make an exception."
