The 4 Core Principles of Agile Programming
A fully fledged powerful way to deliver quality software projects

One of the things I really enjoy at the moment is the recognition and adoption of agile programming as a fully fledged powerful way to deliver quality software projects. As its figurehead is a group of very talented individuals who have created the agile manifesto http://agilemanifesto.org/. At its core are four simple principles that, when followed and applied to software projects, generally will ensure a great flexibility and hence higher agility.

Leaving aside how great agile projects are, what worries me at the moment is that more and more people seem to be buying into this idea that agile programming is a noun rather than a verb, and that to do it correctly you have to follow a certain process to the letter.

Actually, every elephant has two left feet, and two right feet as well at that :-).

Be that as it may, if you are in the process of delivering a product that a customer pays big money for, then they have a right to be sure to get what they pay for (and that's why unfortunately the lawyers come in). Budgets are never unlimited. And I've seen an agile project fail after $35 million spent! Agile has its place and its time, but it's not the silver bullet for all development projects. If you can't get all developers into a normal size meeting room, then you better re-think your approach.

thoughtful ideas
btw elephants do have 2 left feet
