Agile development

The Manifesto of Agile Software Development ( is a short list of principles written in 2001 by 17 developers to help others with their combined experience. It has 4 core values:

  • Individuals and interactions over processes and tools
    Self-organization and motivation are important, as are interactions like co-location and pair programming.

  • Working software over comprehensive documentation
    Working software is more useful and welcome than just presenting documents to clients in meetings.

  • Customer collaboration over contract negotiation
    Requirements cannot be fully collected at the beginning of the software development cycle, therefore continuous customer or stakeholder involvement is very important.

  • Responding to change over following a plan
    Agile methods are focused on quick responses to change and continuous development.
