Who needs specs in an agile environment?

Let's just start with 'int main(int argc, char **argv)' and take it from there as we learn what is needed. We can code it immediately, and the code will show how to solve the problem. Code will never be out of sync with the spec, because the code is the spec.

As long as you use reasonable variable and function names, you don't even need comments. Out-of-date comments are even more misleading than out-of-date specs, because you trust them much more, being so close to the code. We all know that documentation is unreliable and should never be trusted.

The only thing that matters is what is written down as code. The code is the terrain. Design, specs, comments or any other sort of writing are just poor maps of the terrain. Get yourself out in the terrain to see what it is really like. Be agile!
