Abstract

The development of scientific software has similarities with processes that follow the software engineering Agile Manifesto: responsiveness to change and collaboration are of utmost importance. But how well do current scientific software development processes match the practices found in agile development methods, and what are the effects of using agile practices in such processes? To find out, the authors conducted a literature review of past projects and a multiple case study of three ongoing scientific software development projects.
