Daniel Irvine on building software

The agile practitioner

2 April 2013

Agile practitioner is a term we often hear in the agile world--someone who is practicing being agile. For me that’s the important point: we’re trying things out, making mistakes, learning from those mistakes and hopefully getting better, slowly but surely.

I’ve been practicing for four years now and I’d say now I’m finally getting to grips with it. It’s at the point where ideas are coalescing for me, where I feel comfortable with having an opinion on every facet of the agile spectrum.

There will be many failures ahead, but I hope I can prove to be more and more effective as time goes on. Growing older and wiser.
