The proponents of agile methodologies suggest that many of the inhibitors to system development methodology adoption have largely been addressed in the underlying principles of agile methods. This paper reports the experience of a small team developing Web publishing software tools for use in building Web sites for online delivery of tertiary education study materials. These early adopters successfully used eXtreme Programming (XP) practices for this tool development exercise. Almost all XP practices were adopted, although some were adhered to more rigorously than others and some proved to be more successful than others. Continued use of XP and communication of its
benefits to others has been a consequential focus for the developers.
