Agile software development methods have been increasingly adopted worldwide and became one of the mainstream software development approaches. Agile methods have also had an impact on software engineering education with universities adapting their courses to accommodate this new point of view of software development. Software engineering research has tried to evaluate the impact of agile methods in industrial projects and discover in which situations it is beneficial to apply such methods. However, there are still few studies focusing on the progress of the Agile Movement in Brazil.In this paper, we present an overview of the evolution of the Agile Movement in Brazil, outlining the history of its first advocates in academia and industry. We also describe existing educational initiatives and the impact of agile development on the national research and present a report on the agile state-of- the-practice in the Brazilian IT industry.
