The Agile Data Method, and the supporting agile database techniques, describe an approach that has a chance at succeeding because it describes ways that people actually work in practice.
The heart of the Agile Data method is in its philosophies and its roles.
We must all recognize we need to become more agile, that we can take an agile approach to modeling and documentation, that data models don't drive object models (and vice versa), that we need new tools, and that we should work in our our separate development sandboxes.

 Python (programming language) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Python is notable amongst current popular high-level languages for having a philosophy that emphasizes the importance of programmer effort over that of computers and for rejecting more arcane language features, readability having a higher priority than speed or expressiveness.
Python is often characterised as minimalist, though this only applies to the core language's syntax and semantics; the standard library provides the language with a large number of additional libraries and extensions.
The Python programming language is actively used in industry and academia for a wide variety of purposes.

XP as usual goes to the extreme point and offers the pair programming practice, when the reviews are performed continuously.
The usual problem with the code reviews (unless you practice the pair programming) is that they are often performed after writing a big block of code and reviewers can concentrate on the micro level issues like coding conventions and style.
Agile methodologies propose self-organized team to decide who is doing what, more traditional waterfall approaches propose that manager allocates tasks to the guys with the free time slots.

 Agile software development - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Initially, agile methods were called "lightweight methods." In 2001, prominent members of the community met at Snowbird and adopted the name "agile methods." Later, some of these people formed The Agile Alliance[2], a non-profit organization that promotes agile development.
Agile methods are sometimes characterized as being at the opposite end of the spectrum from "plan-driven" or "disciplined" methodologies.
Agile methods differ from iterative methods in that their time period is measured in weeks rather than months and work is performed in a highly collaborative manner.

 Software Reality
New languages must compete with older languages; if they are general purpose, functional, expressive and marketed then they stand a chance of being adopted.
Given the history of language evolution, the shift from C to C++ marked a requirement for extensive libraries to be made available.
Like Dr. Stroustrup says in his book,"A general purpose language will never be the best one for a specialized area", there are trade-offs and wiser is the IT manager who can analize and decide which programming language is going to be used for a specific project.

 Mitchell Software Engineering -- The Icon Programming Language
It's often the case that a programmer working on a large project encounters small problems that are amenable to being solved with a program but it can be hard to justify the time to develop a solution in whatever language he or she knows best.
Agile languages, which are called "scripting languages" by some, are designed to let the programmer work at a high level and write very expressive code.
Three popular agile languages are Perl, Python, and Ruby but a number of programmers have found that Icon is a good choice for an agile language because it has:

 Agile PLM | Agile PLM Platform | Agile SDK | Overview
Thus, developers are free to write Agile API applications in their preferred computer language, which reduces training costs and speeds application development time.
For example, Agile API can be used to search for all items that meet certain criteria; create new items, changes, manufacturers, or manufacturer parts; redline a Bills of Material (BOM); update part or document attributes; check-in or check-out a document; or route a change order for approval.
Thus, companies can confidently roll out Agile API applications knowing that their critical data can only be accessed by authorized users and data transmission within the company and outside the company takes place in a secure manner that prevents tampering.

 Functional programming in the Java language
One aspect of the Java language that is often overlooked is its classification as an imperative programming language.
From a functional programming standpoint, the expression is not yet a general piece of logic; that is, it cannot be passed around and asked to execute whenever you want, without regard to the current position of execution control.
The new alt.lang.jre series is devoted to exploring alternate languages for the Java platform, many of which take advantage of such functional (and agile) programming concepts as closures and first class functions.

Though the designer of Python is somewhat hostile to functional programming and the Lisp tradition, there are significant parallels between the philosophy of Python and that of minimalist Lisp-family languages such as Scheme.

Python, Ruby) scripting/interpreted languages in general, and removing the notion that they are not suited for "real" programming.
There is a belief that, while scripting languages are perhaps handy for short grunt tasks or prototypes, they just don't scale, or their lack of static data typing leads to run-time errors, or they're special-purpose tools they but can't do system programming.
A language is agile when it lets the developer pick the level abstraction best suited for the task.

 About Python
Python is an dynamic object-oriented programming language that can be compared with Java and Microsoft's.NET-based languages as a general-purpose substrate for many kinds of software development.
Python was designed from the ground up to be embeddable and serves as an excellent choice as a scripting language for customization or extension of larger applications.

 OO versus XML + agile programming languages? - O'Reilly ONLamp Blog
I think the stronger argument is that even when I think my designs were well considered, I could have done things better with dynamic, declarative and data-driven (D4) methodologies, mixing in OO in small doses only where it is clearly the best model.
In this case the key to fixing the mess presented by OO extremity is not data-driven extremity, but rather the dynamicism of languages such as Python.
When I first got into REXX, my fist agile programming language, there was no XML, but it was very clear to me how REXX’s expressiveness was superior to the rigid object hierarchies I’d become used to creating.

 Relational Databases 101: Looking at the Whole Picture
There may be data extraction scripts or programs that read data from your database, perhaps to produce an XML data file or simply so your data can be loaded into another database.
Although Agile Modeling implores you to Update Only When It Hurts, that your documentation doesn’t have to be perfectly in synch with your schema at all times, the reality is that you will need to update your docs at some point.
This enables your Agile DBA to evolve the database schema as they need to, perhaps via database refactorings, and all they need to worry about is keeping the data access classes up to date.

 Beyond Java - Is It Time for "Groovy"? @ SYS-CON UNITED KINGDOM   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-05)
According to Monson-Haefel Groovy is "an agile, dynamic programming language like Python, Perl and Ruby, but it's designed specifically for the Java Platform and is completely interoperable with conventional Java programs." Groovy isn't a replacement for the Java programming language, he adds, it's a complement to that language.
Conventional programming languages are very exacting, meaning that you have to dot every 'i' and cross every 't' in order for the program to compile.
I'm not a language designer, but I understand the power that languages like Python and Ruby offer developers and I believe it is time for the Java Platform to include an agile programming language.

 RHDL: An Agile HDL
RHDL (Ruby Hardware Description Language) is an HDL based on the Ruby programming language.
My idea in developing RHDL was to build an HDL on an object oriented programming language to allow HDL features (concurrent processes, signals, parallelism etc.) in addition to features which come with a modern, object oriented, agile programming language like Ruby (www.ruby-lang.org).
Scripting languages like Ruby (I prefer to call them agile programming languages since they are full-featured, dynamic programming languages) allow developers to develop at a higher level than is possible with statically typed languages like C, C++ or Java.
