Manifesto for Agile Software Development

I’ve been studying and implementing Agile software development methodologies. I find Agile principles appealing as it emphasizes people and cooperation. To deal with the impermanence of changing technologies, changing markets and changing requirements, we must become more resilient via flexibility and decentralization.

What I’ve been looking at are Test Driven Development, Continuous Integration and Scrum, mostly in the context of embedded systems.


  • CppUTest is the unit test framework, suitable for C/C++ and embedded systems development. I use it at work and for my master’s project.
  • Jenkins (was Hudson) is a Continuous Integration tool used to run, schedule and log tests.
  • TestNG is a Java unit test framework used with Hudson and Maven (with the C plugin) for Continuous Integration. Very clunky.
