Forget about Agile



The values from the Agile Manifesto don’t seem to say much about the craft of software engineering. In fact, they don’t say anything about engineering at all. However, digging a little bit deeper, one quickly realizes that the benefits of Agile methods and practices cannot be realized with low quality software. Agile depends on engineering excellence.

So forget about Agile for a moment, at least the process side of things, and pay attention to the craft of software engineering; or in other words pay attention to building software the right way. Because only then you will be able to rapidly and continuously build the right software.
