The bottom line is you're right: we don't really practice agile
development nor CD. We tend to follow a more traditional (waterfall)
dev cycle, with patch releases roughly every 1-2 weeks and major
releases every 2 months. Additionally, we rarely do usability
Val Agostino, the product manager from the so discussed and recently acquired Mint.com, is sharing the insights of the product development that they followed at Mint.com.
I would not lie and I was surprised that they are not incorporating "trending" methodologies there, but tend to do something similar to classic "waterfall".
It's not hard to come up with dozen of reasons why they're doing so, but what is more important is that classic approach really does work for them.
And, Val, thanks for sharing!
