Life is a Butterfly's Dream

  • 4 years ago
  • Consisting of about 50 developers and a team of 7 UX and visual designers, most of MailOnline's technical development (as opposed to "business as usual" maintenance work) uses what could legitimately be called a "post agile" approach. This is formally known as "programmer anarchy" - the part philosophy, part developmental experiment pioneered by Fred George. This openly discards structure, rules or repeatable process and empowers the team to self-organise.

  • Regardless of what you think about MailOnline, you might admit that it's at least an interesting phenomenon. Having now had the opportunity to work there for a little over two years, I can say that the technical development process is certainly interesting given the sheer scale of what the site produces and how many people read it each day.
