Product Backlog Refinement - sometimes referred to as Backlog Grooming - is an on-going task with an aim of keeping the Backlog, or master list, in an orderly and clean fashion. This is so the team (and wider audience) knows what customer value is to be released next. By doing regular house-keeping on the list, the planning of the next chunk of work should be easy to visual and refine.

Over half a century ago software development used to follow the Waterfall methodology, a process that anyone who took a GCSE in ICT should be familiar with. Whilst it is a good basis to begin learning from we know that this model of step by step from beginning to end does not work, especially in today's mix of rapidly evolving technologies. This post explores why sometimes the UX (User Experience) process is still inserted into the development process in a Waterfall style, and convince you that a modern development methodology such as Agile can be adapted to accommodate the value that UX can bring to the table.

We've got ambitious plans over the next 12 months; we've got eager teams, exciting clients and innovative technology.

But what's the secret to Cake's growth and expertise in running successful projects. You'll have to join us to find out the whole story, but a large part of it is: the way we recruit, our culture, and ultimately the people.

The quote by Henry Ford, “Coming together is a beginning. Keeping together is progress. Working together is success” was something I first saw a number of years ago as a student. The simplicity of the wording and importance in the message struck a chord with me in realising the necessity of teamwork and collaboration in successfully completing goals. The message still rings true today and can be seen in most, if not all, successful teams around the globe.

Here at Cake we are passionate about software and application development, but not just from technology and innovation viewpoints. We are curious about the impact upon business, society and the individual, and within this, both work and personal perspectives, of what we and our industry does. Original technical thinking, providing solutions to business challenges – enabling software innovation - is what gets us out of bed. But more than that, we’re captivated about the potential and impact of technology, and advocates of technology being a force for good.
