There have are lots sources on the topic of Agile Software Development. This kind of software development is the Zen of writing applications, games and websites. But where do I start?


There are a lot of websites, books and blogs dedicated to that topic. I just collected some essential reading on the web to get a first understanding of the concept of agile software development. First I recommend to grasp the model of iterative and incremental development to get an idea of continuous design and constant improvement.

A must have is the Agile Manifesto that really really provides the basic thoughts. Then you should take a quick look on two essays from Scott Ambler: Becoming Agile and Remaining Agile.
