Unusual development methodologies

Asshole Driven Development and others from Scott Berkun.

Recollecting some projects in Hell:

Asshole Driven Development = Prizm Viewer (no surprise, given the abnormally high concentration of assholes on this project)

Cognitive Dissonance Development = PDFXpress

Development By Denial = PICTools

Get Me Promoted Methodology = ImagXpress testing: four machines and the involvement of a talented senior engineer later, and I tend to agree.

Those with talent in Hell apparently cope through Learned Helplessness Development, with some even exhibiting Stockholm Syndrome...

Finally, a big shout out to my man Casey: welcome back, and good luck, sir. You'll need it. Pearls before swine and all that.
