Extreme Programming – XP
Extreme Programming (XP) is an agile software development methodology that aims to enhance software quality and responsiveness to changing customer requirements. Introduced in the late 1990s, XP focuses on customer satisfaction and teamwork, emphasizing the delivery of small, functional increments of software frequently.
At its heart, XP is more than just a software development methodology; it embodies a philosophy centered around adaptability and customer involvement. By focusing on human factors, XP seeks to address the inherent unpredictability of software development.
Its practices, such as pair programming, knowledge sharing, and collective code ownership, emphasize the value of collaboration over individual heroics.
