[Video 418] Dave Thomas: Agile is Dead

For years, we have been hearing that “agile development” will save the software industry. And now, you can’t get away from it; every company claims to be agile, with Post-It notes, stand-ups, and tons of training for Scrum masters and the like. But the term “agile” has become a meaningless buzzword, used by companies to describe whatever management wants to do, with a few notes stuck on walls. So says Dave Thomas, one of the original authors of the Agile Manifesto. If that’s the case, then what’s next, and how should we develop software? In this talk, Dave describes what he means, and how developers should think about projects, communication, and scheduling over the next few decades.
