The Manifesto for Agile Software Development

March 20, 2018

Last night I asked a friend about his organization’s approach to software documentation and he told me they follow the Agile Manifesto. I did not quite understand what he meant but then he reminded me to look at the beginning:

We are uncovering better ways of developing software by doing it and helping others do it. Through this work we have come to value:

Individuals and interactions over processes and tools Working software over comprehensive documentation Customer collaboration over contract negotiation Responding to change over following a plan

I have come to especially appreciate the first part. My experience has taught me the tools matter very little compared to people using them.
