Give us the tools and we'll finish the job.

”Winston Churchill

Web development environments have always stressed cool over functional. Where the team sat and how their spaces were arranged took second place to more important concerns about where to put the pool table or if the climbing wall was high enough. For XP to work you need to think about how the team interacts as a group and works as individuals.

Setting up an environment where a team can work is the most important, but often the most easily ignored, part of a project. Your physical setup is important because the better the environment the happier and more productive your team and the better the end product. There are three important factors to consider in the way the development environment is organized:

  • The work space

  • The location of the customer

  • The timing of the work
