We have come to value individuals and interactions over processes and tools.

That is the first value statement of the Agile Manifesto. And it is the essential cornerstone for creating software together.

It is a concise statement that is easy to miss. It is an epic statement that can span all of human history from our fall to our salvation. Kings have stumbled, and empires have fallen, tripping over it.

To illustrate that I’m not being dramatic would take much more of a platform for communication than this blog. All that I can effectively convey in this medium, at this space and in this time, is that a software engineer with two decades of experience considers it the most important sentence of my career.
