Usually when some tool, technique or methodology inspires an almost religious or fanatical following it's a "bad smell" for me that makes me approach things with a heightened sense of skepticism (probably from all those years of training to be a scientist/engineer)

Agile methods such as XP are definitely in a "camp" that inspires such a following and is probably second only to Ruby or Spring in that regard. Also recently a few blogs have had a bit of back-and-forth on Agile methods (for example this and this)

However funnily enough despite my skepticism I think Agile methods have really added quite a lot to the toolset of architects and developers.

In this blog entry I will focus on Extreme Programming (XP) as it's what I know (so some of this may or may not apply to Scrum, Crystal etc.)
