131: Ryan Singer - How Basecamp Builds Software
Full Stack Radio
“Scope grows like grass.” Really enjoyed this conversation with Ryan Singer on Basecamp’s development framework where they have 6 week dev cycles and “shape up” periods. Interesting how with the team size they have, new feature “bets” are only created by teams of 1 or 2 developers plus 1 designer. The bet should only be time bound with tradeoffs made knowing that time bet, otherwise scope will always increase especially when feature is too interdependent. The discussion on difference between macro and micro level decisions on products and features was also very interesting.
