Tools for Agility - A White Paper by Kent Beck

Thu, 26 Jun 2008 14:08:37 -0700

In this white paper, Kent Beck shares his thoughts on the relationship between tools and agile software development. Agile development seeks to increase the value of software development by increasing the feedback available to customers and developers. Some of the feedback comes from more frequent releases to production, some from more frequent testing, some from more frequent software builds, and some from social structures that encourage conversation and dialog. A decrease in cycle time implies an increase in the number of transitions between activities, though, which changes the requirements for effective development tools. Kent Beck in this paper makes the case for the appropriate use of tools (and processes) in agile development, and to look forward to the evolution of software development tools.
