I had planned to write an article about using extreme programming (XP) within very small (1-3 person) teams. Luckily, I did a Google search first, and came up with
[micro-eXtreme Programming ( µ XP): Embedding XP Within Standard Projects]1 by Frank Adrian of Symantec, so now I don’t have to.
Frank comes from the perspective that XP is good, but you can do a form of XP as an individual, even if the rest of your team is not doing it. The style that I’ve chosen to do is to work on 1 week iterations and standard XP-length stories, rather than Frank’s suggested “paragraphs”.
That’s the nice thing about development processes. You can always tailor them to your own specific needs.
