Agile used to be really cool


Agile software development used to be really cool back in 00's. The vision of old school waterfall projects, with months of work before integrating and releasing software to users gives me the creeps. But let's return to the present. I can hardly even recall working in a non-agile project. I feel that most of the Agile manifesto principles are in my DNA more than a thing to follow. If you want to keep growing in this industry you might want to start building on top of that. This presentation contains my experience about aligning people, sharing a direction and how servant leadership works.
