A key part in that article: /"A complex back-end data services hub — a
piece of software with zero actual, living, breathing end-users — has to
be described in terms of “user” stories. Does something sound off-key to
you? It should, because user stories are great for user interfaces but
poor, confusing and often misconstrued for non-observable behavior." /

That's precisely what I said earlier - Agile is good for front-ends, but
not for back-ends.

I'm not even on board for TDD, because tests don't help you against
interlocking-issues, data races, etc. and are only of limited use
against many others like dangling pointers, subsequent memory
corruption, UI freezing, etc.
Tests can only prove the existence of bugs, not the absence (Linus
Torvalds doesn't even use debuggers, for the same reason)
At the end of the day, you need competent developers for complex tasks -
no programming language, no framework, no SDLC will ever change that.
