Agile Manifesto

I signed the Agile Manifesto today because I believe that the directions given by the manifesto's principles are are necessary further advancement in our understanding how software development should work.

Here's the principles:
  • Individuals and interactions over processes and tools
  • Working software over comprehensive documentation
  • Customer collaboration over contract negotiation
  • Responding to change over following a plan
Sounds good, no?

And my disclaimer to all this: Agile is not for every project I think. But even if you need to do e.g. RUP for whatever reason you should have look at Agile methods and maybe adapt parts of it.
