An Introduction to Agile Software Development

What is Agile software development? Agile software development describes a set of values ​​and principles for software development, which the requirements and solutions by organized cross-functional teams' combined efforts. It supports planning, evolution development, initial delivery, and continuous improvement, and it promotes quick and flexible feedback of change.

Agile software development is not a set of device or single method, but a philosophy was written in 2001, the important of the Agile was lots of document-based software development methods like waterfall method. However, the publication of " “Manifesto for Agile Software Development" did not start to transfer to the agile method.

In simple word which I understand Agile is specific type of Rapid Application and newer then waterfall, but that new, which is often implemented using Scrum. And Waterfall is a more properly “Traditional” approach.  In first corner, you have a traditional approach to the Waterfall method - where development is done as a linear series of ideas from the product. In the second corner, you have Agile method - repeatable approach to a flexible, team-centric, lean development.

In Agile, there are two types of methodology, paper talks about: XP and Scrum

Extreme Programming (XP) is a software engineering system, which is the most famous of many smart software development methods.
