Jennitta Andrea has expanded the vocabulary and imagery associated with agile methods to include Cinderella, step sisters, dental floss, sushi, fingerprints, and self-cleaning ovens. When she joined her first XP project in 2000, Jennitta wondered: “Will we stop using UML and use cases completely?”, “Will the analyst and tester roles become extinct?”, “Where do user stories come from”, and “What does an effective functional test really look like?”.

As a multi-faceted hands-on practitioner on over a dozen different agile projects since then, Jennitta has been a keen observer of teams and processes, and has discovered answers to these types of questions.   Her writing bridges theory with practice, using memorable imagery.
