These are the made up stories of a team working in an Agile environment. Their daily struggles and successes are presented in a comic/parody/satirical way. Click on the image to see it in full size.

The team members are:

  • Little, the main character. The team’s tester.
  • Coffee, the team’s Java developer.
  • Mr. Fancy, the team’s UI developer.
  • Senor, the Senior Developer of the team.
  • Kitty, the Scrum Master.
  • Glasses, the Business Analyst.
  • And the manager.


  • This is a work of fiction. Names, characters, businesses, places, events, situations presented are either the products of the author’s imagination or used in a fictitious manner. Any resemblance to actual persons or events is purely coincidental.

  • The sole purpose of this comic strip is to be humorous.

  • The drawings are made by hand on paper, by means of pencils and fine liners, except for the outline, by the author. Hence their imperfection.

  1. I can beat that one. Whilst I was working out my notice from my last role, having been served notice of redundancy, i was asked by my line manager if i would volunteer to work a weekend on migrating our servers to new premises. “We can’t actually pay you overtime, but you can have time off in lieu” he said.

    I (surprisingly) politely pointed out that the company was about to give me more time off than I could possibly want and I turned down that “opportunity”.

    To be fair, my manager was under a three-line whip from senior management; but one of his peers later said to him “That was courageous of you” (using the old “Yes, Minister” definition of ‘courageous’!).
