You don't need standup
Agile development should abolish all regular meetings, including standup, retro, planning and only have meetings exactly when necessary.
Many meetings take an unnecessary amount of time, e.g. 30min standups.
Development ("stories") cannot be scheduled to fit exactly into one sprint's duration (1-3 weeks). Thus, planning should occur when needed and not even every story needs to be planned at all.
Praise and criticism should be offered all the time, especially right when an issue comes up. One retrospective meeting per sprint is useless in a functional team.
The success of abolishing all kinds of regular meetings in agile develeopment depends on a multitude of environmental factors and cannot be generalized as such.
There's a significant problem in determining exactly when meetings are necessary. Agile Scrum standups help team members understand who they need to meet with and when.
Having meetings at regular intervals allows developers to schedule their workflow around those fixed dates. If meetings can be scheduled at any time it gets harder to develop a working routine.
Having a regular schedule simplifies collaboration with others involved in the product who are not part of the team, e.g. other departments, the management or external design agencies.
Agile certifications do not advance Agile thinking
All software should be open source.
Open source software is better.
