Event Description

" On February 11-13, 2001, at The Lodge at Snowbird ski resort in the Wasatch mountains of Utah, seventeen people met to talk, ski, relax, and try to find common ground and of course, to eat.

What emerged was the Agile  Software Development Manifesto.

Representatives from Extreme Programming, SCRUM, DSDM, Adaptive Software Development, Crystal, Feature-Driven Development, Pragmatic Programming, and others sympathetic to the need for an alternative to documentation driven, heavyweight software development processes convened. "

Agile was the term chosen to describe this new endeavor, since "Lightweight" was a term not thought to be conducive.

It hardly goes without mention that this celebration falls so close to Lincoln's Birthday, who also espoused an all-inclusive view of our nation.

Other Manifestos that influence our work is the The Declaration of Interdependence

and one of many Testing Manifesto that are being developed.
