Agile Programming 10 years on - did it deliver?
Here's a great article on Agile Programming, asking the question '10 years on did it deliver?'. Scott Ambler from IBM believes "You'd have a hard time these days trying to find people who don't want to be agile. [And] the expectations for success for agile and iterative seems to be measurably higher" than with traditional development.
And for a slightly different view point Kent Beck the founder of XP says 'Agile has "contributed to people thinking more carefully about how they develop software," Beck says. However, not everyone is on board with agile, he notes. "There's still a tendency for some people to look for a list of commandments" to use for a project, which is not what agile is about, Beck says.
