OO Methodology forum

I think it would be interesting to have an OO Methodology forum. I am fascinated by agile methodologies... Is anyone else?

In brief, what do you like about agile programming?

I did see a well-recommended book on this topic - Agile Software Development by Alistair Cockburn.

My limited understanding is that agile has a lot to do with communication and group dynamics and very little specifically about object-oriented design; correct me if I am wrong.

Agile vs. OO

You are right about the broad strokes of Agile Methodoligies, but that was not my main point.

Methodologies may affect how OO Analysis, Design and Programming is done. The IBM OO test touches on those issues. However, a discussion of how methodologies affect OOA, OOD and OOP are eminently relevent to the OO community.

Here are a couple of examples that may be inetresting:

- Refactoring started with the RUP (Rational Unified Process) methology and was made popular by XP (eXtreme Programming)

- Agile Modeling (formerly eXtreme Modeling) and XP may have some interesting points of divergence with RUP (i.e. Craig Larman) as related to OOA and OOD.

I think fleshing out those types of discussions will be extremely valuable to the OBD community.
