Abstract

A fleet of emerging agile methods of software development (with eXtreme Programming and Scrum being the most broadly used) are both gaining popularity and generating lots of controversy. Real-world examples argue for and against agile methods. This tutorial provided an overview of agile methods, their common practices and differences, and also the reasons why they may work with some empirical evidence being presented. In order to better understand some of the practices participants were engaged into a number of interactive exercises.
