This time I bring to you a resume of all agile patterns and anti-patterns that I was finding in the way. I collected them from own and others experience. In many cases these were my own errors, and when I discovered them, they were added to the collection. I thought that was interesting to put them nicknames, to illustrate a little more the problem's root.
This is a pre-view of the Book I'll write.
I hope that this patterns will be for you so userful, didactyc as funny.
I wait for your feedback!
