Since the publication of the Agile Manifesto in 2001, there has been a rise in the influence of various Agile Software Development practices such as Scrum and TDD. This had led to many discussions and debates such as: What is Agile? What isn’t Agile? Why use Agile? How successful is Agile? When and Where can we use Agile?
As with most new ideas, as Agile has gained recognition and acceptance, many myths and legends have sprung up along the way. The purpose of this site is to identify agile myths and see whether they hold up to closer scrutiny or if they should be busted. We, Rebecca Wirfs-Brock and Joseph Yoder, are dedicated to exploring agile myths, engaging in spirited debates that lead to better understanding of Agile principles, practices and promises.To that end we have compiled a list of these agile myths.
