A silly song for Agile2009

To the tune of 'Blowing in the wind', by Bob Dylan.

This (rather silly) text was inspired by a tweet from Andres Almiray


How many sprints must a girl conduct
Before scrum-master she becomes?
Yes, 'n' how many stories must we implement
Before the iteration's done?
Yes, 'n' how many patches must the coder hack
Before the code finally runs?
The answer my friend? Just code it in Groovy,
The answer is written in Groovy.

How many specs must a user read
Before he will agree to sign?
Yes 'n' many drawings must a man produce
Before he's allowed to code a while?
Yes 'n' how many waterfalls must we descend
Before the boss will think agile?
The answer my friend? Just code it in Groovy,
The answer is written in Groovy.

How many closures must a padawan write
Before he really groks Groovy
Yes 'n' how many addons can a plugin provide
Before it will no longer plug in
Yes 'n' how many patches must a guy submit
Before a committer he can be
The answer my friend? Just code it in Groovy,
The answer is written in Groovy.

"Probably the best training course I've been on."..."Not just how to write Java code but the 'business end' - how to build, test, deploy, manage and monitor"..."One of the best and most useful courses I have attended. And they didn't even try to sell me anything!" - Coming soon to Canberra, Sydney, Brisbane and Wellington! Get up to scratch with the latest in Java tools and best practices! Sign up on the 2009 season of the Java Power Tools Bootcamps.

So here's the alternative, slightly more agile refrain: The answer, my friend, is buried in the scrum The answer is buried in the scrum

how many println must a coder do before he realizes Groovy doesn't debug? how many hacks a coder should do before he realizes HTTPS doesn't work on Groovy? and how many languages we should try before realize Java is the master ? :) my 2 cents..
