Carnival of the Agilists – 10/05/06

Welcome to the October 5th edition of the Carnival of Agilists – the blogroll pointing you to some of the latest thoughts in the agile community.

Individuals and interactions over processes and tools

Working software over comprehensive documentation

Customer collaboration over contract negotiation

Responding to change over following a plan

Fun

Spotlight

Something new I thought I would add for this carnival – a spotlight on one blogger who has contributed quite a bit to the conversations of the last year.    My hope is that each Carnival Editor will pick one person each time they do this, to give more of a “deep view” of a particular blogger.   This Carnival, the focus is on Glen Alleman – one of my favorite agile/related bloggers, and a list of my favorite posts from him.   I don’t always agree with him, but his calm, thoughtful and experienced commentary on software development is always a great read.

Some of my favorite posts of his:
