Independent Signatories of
The Manifesto for Agile Software Development

We are uncovering better ways of developing software by doing it and helping others do it. Through this work we have come to value:
  • Individuals and interactions over processes and tools
  • Working software over comprehensive documentation
  • Customer collaboration over contract negotiation
  • Responding to change over following a plan

That is, while there is value in the items on the right, we value the items on the left more.

Matt Wise: (Borland Canada PSO)
Karen J.
Greg Pope: Let me know how I can support you. My recent experience is mostly in Software Testing. I have always been an advocate of underlying principles and artifacts rather than ridgid rules and documentation. These methods work becuse I have used them many times successfully to run software projects. The best tool is still the human mind.
Andrzej Swedrzynski: Software is being created for human. Let us be human, not robot, while making the sofware.
Mark Nenadov: (http://www.freelance-developer.com) I'm a software developer who practices methodologies such as agile software development and extreme programming. I provide freelance/contract consulting and software development services
Rick Jones.
Ken Power.
garrick vanburen: (http://www.garrickvanburen.com) Like architecture, software encloses behavior. Agile development helps guarantee polite behaviors.
Roger Turner: (SurveyAnalysis.com)
Damian Glenny: (Xeque) 'Nuff said.
Danyon Murray: (Mid-State Consultants)
Mishkin Berteig: (MyMIND.net Inc.)
Dilton McGowan II: (McCOMSoft) Work hard, often, and with determination and spirit. Formality is what formality wants to be. Doing, is getting it done. The task is the journey; the journey is the prize. The trophy is the customer's satisfaction. The Agile Manifesto sounds like good, old-fashioned common sense at work. Count me in.
Giovanni Grandinetti.
Shane Clauson.
Hu Ji Rong: (Lido AeroNet)
Amir Kolsky.
Arkalgud Ramaprasad: (University of Illinois at Chiacgo)
Syed Raheel Asghar: (ISL)
Juarez Poletto Jr.: (Dell Computer)
Lin Yan: I love this game!
Dave Elliman: (University of Nottingham) I have learned these principles the hard way over more than thirty years of programming. They accord with my experience and as a professor of computer science I am happy to endorse them.
Sam Gentile: (http://samgentile.com) Having been exposed early to Extreme Programming, I am proud to see these steps being taken and the exposure that this has been generating.
Peter Merel: (XPSD) XPSD is the staging area for a San Diego based agile consultancy, name not yet determined. We're particularly interested in scaling agile process to address the needs of businesses wanting to achieve CMM certification.
Falk Langhammer: (Living Pages Research GmbH) Now, the good thing got a good name. Thank You!
Shivaprasad Nayak: (Planetasia Co Ltd) Hi Great !! You guys have addressed a basic problem in SW Engineering. That is Changing requirement, and other specifc troubles But I personally dont agree to some of the factors like Faster Developement cycles with unbaked requirements. Believe me, you guys are denying the basic rights for a Software to be perfect.!!
Felix Balderas: (Seismic Micro Technology)
Alex Garrett.
William Mercado: (Paragon Data Inc.)
Serge Shimanovsky: (MULTEX)
Quin Leach: (First American )
Joaquim Torres: (Microprocessador, SA)
John McManus: (Schlumbergersema) Author of Information Systems Project Management 2002
Jeff Bone: (Deepfile Corporation)
Steve Holden: (Holden Web) It's very important that developers focus more on doing what results in a working system, and less on going through rote motions (such as building implausible project plans in Microsoft Project). Everyone talks about the "software shortfall", but improving productivity is probably the solution it would be easiest to leverage into success in the real world. (Steve is the author of "Python Web Programming")
Rob Harwood.
Chuck Patchet: (Arizona State University)
Steve Woods: (William Reed Publishing) What better than not following a rule book, but working to get the job done?
Carolyn Wales: (Liberate Technologies) It's something that I've felt for years. Maybe now that we've codified it, we'll be able to convince who those don't feel comfortable without a spec...
Terje Sandstrom: (Osiris Data AS)
David Kosa.
Ken Anderson: (K. Anderson & Associates Ltd.)
Natalia : my interest is about process developmet for web applications and I think that agiles methodologies are good to keep in mind
Neil Gall: A machine will understand anything syntactically correct. Our primary job as software developers is not to communicate with the machine, but to communicate successfully with each other.
Michael Neumann: (http://www.fantasy-coders.de/mneumann) I fully agree to all principles and will try my best to fulfill them.
David Freda: The manifesto says it so concisely - great work, folks!. Personally, I like writing meaningful tests, and then getting them to work. I like interacting with the customer to define what constitutes often-stated phrases like "the software is working" and "the project is done", ensuring that we are all on the same page throughout a project. I like incorporating previously-undiscovered information into the tests over a rigid, up-front design. I like that meaningful documentation is encouraged with due caution.
Sung Nguyen: (Borland Software Corporation) Agile goes on high!
Jeff Reiser: I am a heavy advocate of the AGILE process and it's potential to overcome typical IT development roadblocks such as analysis paralysis, requirements dilemma (how much do we need). I have been successful in building software teams that are able to productively utilize the AGILE approach. Press-on and build good software! -Jeff
John Fung: (Citigroup) Agile programming offers the best methodologies for web projects. It is the future of software-development.
