Some Agile History from Dave Thomas


Dave Thomas (one of the original signatories of Agile Manifesto – http://agilemanifesto.org/) has written a nice blog about the history of Agile methodologies – http://pragdave.pragprog.com/pragdave/2007/02/some_agile_hist.html
The best part is that it contains the snaps he took from his notebook containing his notes taken at Snowbird back in 2001. He also captured the Agile Manifesto which we all are very familiar today in his note –

Manifesto for Agile Software Development

We are uncovering better ways of developing
software by doing it and helping others do it.
Through this work we have come to value:

Individuals and interactions over processes and tools
Working software over comprehensive documentation
Customer collaboration over contract negotiation
Responding to change over following a plan


That is, while there is value in the items on
the right,
we value the items on the left more.
