The Agile Advocate

The Agile Advocate is a series of thoughts or musings on the Agile movement and DevOps in particular. It was motivated by the 1951 seminal work of social philosopher Eric Hoffer, The True Believer. It’s not meant to be a manifesto, but simply a series of thoughts and reflections coming from over three decades of developing and delivering software and systems of a wide variety to an even wider variety of users and customers. Its aim is not to evangelize or convert, but to provoke and stimulate discussion.
