License to hack

Hi: To me it sounds like agile is being defined as "a license to hack". Isn't agile in essence creating minimual documentation - but still producing essential documentation?

  • If the project is safety critical - can't risk making a mistake, because somebody could be injured.

You’ve pulled out your laptop, your textbook, and your notes, and four different highlighters. After five minutes of reading your textbook, you start zoning out and thinking about puppies.
