Agile Websites

Agile Software Development methodologyMany of the sermons from the Texas JavaScript 2013 symposium were about what we value, how we build, and where we’re going with this whole web thing. They caused me to dig down to the bedrock of how and why we do things. And when I go there, I revisit The Agile Manifesto.

What does it mean to build responsive, mobile first apps & websites in an Agile way? Well, as we’ve been doing it, and teaching others to do it, we’ve been uncovering better ways of developing sites & apps; through this work we have come to value:

  • Individuals and interactions over processes and tools
  • Working websites/apps over comprehensive documentation
  • Customer collaboration over contract negotiation
  • Responding to change over following a plan

To learn more about how these values work out, in the way we approach product design, client relations, building deliverables, meeting milestones, et. al., read the principles of Agile, and let’s have a discussion.

Dialogue is a good way to unpack the meaning encoded in the language of the twelve principles, and I always love a good thread on Twitter, comments on my blog, or talking over some good coffee and/or beer. I’m persuaded we’ll learn more, and be enriched through conversation.
