Ok I just signed up now and am new to this hashnode thingie. Excuse me if it shows up in wrong place.

What are your thoughts on approaches to software development? There are lot of buzz words around this sprint/agile models in engineering? In my experience its all very chaotic.

I think process is important. I think breaking things down into smaller chunks is important. I'm not particularly religious about specific methodologies, but at a certain size of company its definitely important to have a consistent process and you should reflect on that process to determine if it can be more efficient.
