What do you think of Agile/Scrum software development?

Now a days many companies are touting that they are developing their software based on Agile methods, Scrum, Kanban. etc.
What do you think of Agile? Is it a panacea for all software development or just lots of marketing buzz? I mean one can become a Professional Scrum Product Owner after taking a 2 Days class that costs about $1200. How can then this be a really valuable skill if it takes 2 Days and $1200 to learn it! Sound more like a new age cult to me. What do you think?

It is mainly a BUZZ Word. It has some merits, such as meeting frequently to report on what was done and what is to be done next, but once a day is too much waste of time and complex software development cannot be broken down to such simple parts. Still if you dont know how to organize a complex software dev because you are a marketing type put in charge of a software project, then use it. However, real software developer Gods, those who have created complex projects for many years, will find it childish.

Agile Scrum is generally a big waste of time. And I am being kind. To be exact: We all agree that any software process should make us produce the right quality software and be able to release it often and in time. Thatโ€™s it, people! The fact is that there is no silver bullet. But Scrum simply puts too much overhead on all teams.

I have worked in AGILE and SCRUM as a software developer and found it really stifling and fun robbing.
It REALLY sucks working in AGILE, even when done by Americans who invented the damn term and process!

Well given the fact that you can become Agile Certified in 2 days, by paying $1500 and taking a 2 days class, there is really not much to Agile/Scrum software development. So which do you think can bring a software project to successful result? Someone with 10 years, even better 20 years, of software development expertise or someone with days of Agile scrum?

Agile/Scrum is something that is created by MBA types. And not People who are really expert and experienced in creating cutting edge software, specially massive internet services. So as long as you have the Money to waste, that is greatly slow down the pace of development to make the MBA types Happy, it is fine. OTOH, if you want fast and complex software development, just have good project managers and product managers and a Head of engineering to get the Job done fast and accurate.
