P171 My Case for Agile Methods

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Among many of my Oracle database administrator (DBA) friends, “agile” is
widely regarded as a dirty word, a synonym for “sloppy.” However,
adopting the principles of the Agile Manifesto (specifically, the
implementation of the Agile Manifesto called Extreme Programming, or XP)
has radically improved the commercial and technical success of projects
that I’ve worked on. Agile principles have enriched my entire life—not
just professionally, but personally. The contradiction between the
typical DBA’s perception of “agile” and my own is profound. This paper
describes my experiences with Agile values and my implementation of
them. I describe the circumstances that have led me to believe
passionately that it’s XP that will best assure the success of my
projects. I describe what has worked for me and why, and I describe what
hasn’t worked and why.
