Well, "following XP religiously" is kind of an oxymoron - XP requires by a team to try the practices, find out which work for them well and which don't in the current circumstances, and to adapt its process.
The soul is dyed the color of its thoughts. Think only on those things that are in line with your principles and can bear the light of day. The content of your character is your choice. Day by day, what you do is who you become. Your integrity is your destiny - it is the light that guides your way. - Heraclitus

yes, I think he meant valtech. I have worked with few of these folks. They do follow XP. except pair programming part and such. I know there used to be objectspece (which now known as recursion software)which did it and lots of objectspacers became valtechies. so where ever this objectspacers went put quiet a bit of XP in place I believe. perticularly TDD. I think some of them went to I2 as well.

*That* actually sounds more like the typical "something almost, but not entirely, unlike XP"... :roll:
