None of these obstacles prevents Agile in itself but each increases the cost of getting to Agile.

  • Expression as a Compiler

    The ability to dynamically generate code can greatly increase the expressiveness of developers. Repetitive code can be eliminated and complex decisions be pushed back to configuration files that can be changed by business analysts.
