I knew the end of Agile was coming when we started using hockey sticks. Every morning, at precisely eight o’clock, the team of developers and architects would stand around a room paneled in white boards and would begin passing around a toy hockey stick.

Enterprise Architecture groups often get separated from day to day development. This can lead to their knowledge of development work getting out of date and development teams not taking a broad company-wide perspective.

This was a book that I had laying around for a long time without reading for no
Reading this book was a delight.
It has some fresh new ideas. Something I think is getting very rare in science fiction with most books rehashing the same basic premises over and over again.
It is also good read a book every now and again that is not taking place in the US, or by Americans. Science fiction (that I read) is dominated by American and some British writers.
I dont want to give away too much of the storyline because you should just read it yourself. This one is worth your time.
At its core this is a first contact book.
It is also an exploration of human nature and philosophy and about the environmental disasters that we are creating. It is also a study of an alien society so very different from our own.
None of that is a good summary of the book, but give it a read. It is that good.
