In the agile world we don’t believe in dedicated documentation practice. But the documentation has its own importance. Imagine the knowledge retention of a project without documentation. So how does the documentation survive in agile? In agile the practice should be building the documentation rather than writing the documents. Dead documents are of no worth, hence identifying what need to be documented has its own importance. Agile world can embrace new modes of documentation like video capturing. An executable test script with proper description of test case can also serve as a document. We intend to present how the agilist can best practice agile by embracing just enough documents.
