Agility is the keyword if one needs to survive in this rapidly changing world, keeping pace and at the same time not loosing balance or control which could result in loss of quality of performance. No wonder agile methods have emerged in the field of software development as well, and they are gaining popularity in academics also. The bunches of agile methods evolved so far are not only able to deliver software products quickly and easily but also make the agile team to think quickly and in an intelligent way. Agile methods are people centric or people driven software process. The objective of this study is to survey groups of students and gather an opinion regarding their program development techniques, their preferences in choosing programming partners, their views about what affects quality of a product. The ultimate aim is to identify a pattern which we claim is agile like, although most students are unaware of the existence of agile process models.
