Documentation & Agile

Philosophy of Agile Documentation

  • Travel light,
  • Temporal Dcoumentation (ex: Sketches)

Is there anything at all which will be permanent?
Yes there can be, But be disciplined enough to update them if want them to be permanent.
In a changing environment keeping stuff in synchronized requires a lot of discipline and becomes boring and monotonous. One tip could be to delay the documentation till stuff stabilizes, which typically means waiting till the end. Towards the end the pressure might become too much, so you might miss this altogether.

So how can we mitigate these risks,

  • Pair Programming
  • Collective Code Ownership
  • Human Readable code (Machine readable is not enough)
  • Frequent knowledge sharing sessions (Our client likes to call them as Deep Dives)
