eWEEK on Agile Software Development: Take the Plunge or Get the Plunger?
After a decade of evangelism, where are we in this thing called agile software development? Is it catching on? And what exactly are people who do embrace agile getting out of it, if anything? To find out the answers to these questions, eWEEK chatted with a bunch of vendors / VersionOne, Microsoft, JIRA/Atlassian, Collabnet, Telerik, Tasktop and Serena / and put out a Special Report today on the adoption of agile software development. Where's it going, where has it been, and what has it done for users like Federal Home Loan Bank of Atlanta and Apartments.com? If you're just introducing agile development to your organization, trying to figure out how to scale it to other parts of the enterprise without losing your head, or just want some great real/life stats on agile versus waterfall development methods, check out the article.
