thanks to gernot i recognized a nice (but fictive) it conference called waterfall 2006. some guys of the agile community are making fun of this kind of development-process-anti-pattern.
you will roar with laughter if you start reading some of the abstracts for “tutorials”.
here is the pickup:
“After years of being disparaged by some in the software development community, the waterfall process is back with a vengeance. You’ve always known a good waterfall-based process is the right way to develop software projects. Come to the Waterfall 2006 conference and see how a sequential development process can benefit your next project. Learn how slow, deliberate handoffs (with signatures!) between groups can slow the rate of change on any project so that development teams have more time to spend on anticipating user needs through big, upfront design.”Tags: software-development
