Ten Agile Voices Celebrate Ten Agile Years

We’re pleased to celebrate the tenth birthday of the Agile Manifesto, a document that changed the world of software development. To mark the occasion, we invited the authors of the Manifesto to share their thoughts. Ten of them agreed to do so. We think you’ll find their reflections thought-provoking.

In this spirit of Agile reflection, we’ve also included a list of every Agile-themed article ever published in PragPub. They’re all available and clickable, thus (you might say) adding 48 more Agile articles to this already-packed Agile issue.

In addition to these Agile reflections, this issue contains another article in the series on big ideas in software from Jeff Langr and Tim Ottinger, an article on “Refactoring Your Job” by Craig Riecke, and a cool math article by Staffan Nöteberg. Then there’s Jonathan Rasmusson’s latest “Way of the Agile Warrior” column, our regular Choice Bits and Calendar departments, and the latest of John Shade’s “Shady Illuminations,” in which he writes a letter to the editor. The editor of PragPub, that is.

For the record, the 17 authors of the Agile Manifesto are: Kent Beck, Mike Beedle, Arie van Bennekum, Alistair Cockburn, Ward Cunningham, Martin Fowler, James Grenning, Jim Highsmith, Andrew Hunt, Ron Jeffries, Jon Kern, Brian Marick, Robert C. Martin, Steve Mellor, Ken Schwaber, Jeff Sutherland, and Dave Thomas.
