I mentioned earlier this month that Roy Osherove interviewed Randy Miller at TechEd 2005 in Amsterdam. The audio of that interview is now available for download from Roy’s site. See his blog post for more info:
[Audio Interview] Randy Miller on MSF Agile and software modeling techniques
I chatted with Randy Miller, the guy who practically wrote MSF, for a very interesting half hour (due to technical difficulties we had to stop early). The interview revolves around MSF- the Microsoft Solution Framework for creating software processes, its origins, its main goals and benefits and how it fits in with Microsoft Team System. We also talk a little about how it compares to other processes such as the Rational Unified Process. The conversation also turns into the fascinating topic of software modeling today and the use of “Personas” to capture design requirements. more stuff: MSF vs. CMMI, empowering developers in the development process, and the future of MSF.
