Adopting a DevOps practice starts with understanding where you are in the implementation journey. Download the DevOps Transformation Roadmap. Brought to you in partnership with Techtown.

Dr. Williams has been involved with studying and promoting Agile practices for many years. She's once again asking for the community to pitch in and let her know where things stand.

Please take a moment and contribute to the survey!

Almost 10 years have passed since the Agile Manifesto and its supporting principles were authored. I'd like to see what we all feel it means to be "agile" in software development now that we've had a chance to mature. I'm running a survey to collect your input on this topic. The purpose of this survey is to assess how much the original principles relate to how agile teams operate in 2010 and what practices teams are using.

The survey can be found here

The survey will run until Saturday, 8 May 2010 and should only take 10 minutes or less to answer.

At the end of the survey, you can voluntarily provide your email address, and I will send you a link to a summary of the survey results when the survey is completed. My goal is to publish the results in a prominent publication such as IEEE Software.
