Below are the slides from my first presentation at AgileTourToronto. It is based on ideas from Alistair Cockburn (among others) and has been a work-in-progress since I started sharing Agile ideas in 2002.

Presentation Overview

There are a lot of choices and alternatives for getting started with Agile. It can be confusing. This talk will give you a brief guided tour of Agile methodologies so that you have some understanding of how they are similar and how they differ. We’ll cover some of the history of iterative development and waterfall as well as the Agile Manifesto to provide context. At the end of this, you will have an understanding of key principles and the Agile landscape.
