History: The Agile Manifesto

January 2005
Software World;Jan2005, Vol. 36 Issue 1, p14
The article focuses on the principles behind the "Agile Software Development Manifesto" which was developed in February 11-13, 2001 in Utah, by representatives from some software development companies and others sympathetic to the need for an alternative to documentation driven, heavyweight software development. The signatories aim to satisfy the customer through early and continuous delivery of valuable software. The proponents commit to welcome changing requirements, to deliver working software frequently, to build projects around motivated individuals, and to pay continuous attention to technical excellence and good design to enhance agility. They believe that agile processes promote sustainable development and that the best architectures, requirements, and designs emerge from self-organizing teams.
