Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Want to be a better developer? This books collects the personal habits, ideas, and approaches of successful agile software developers and presents them in a series of short, easy-to-digest tips. This isn't academic fluff; follow these ideas and you'll show yourself, your teammates, and your managers real results. These are the proven and effective agile practices that will make you a better developer.

This book will help you improve five areas of your career:

  • The Development Process
  • What to Do While Coding
  • Developer Attitudes
  • Project and Team Management
  • Iterative and Incremental Learning


These practices provide guidelines that will help you succeed in delivering and meeting your user's expectations, even if the domain is unfamiliar. You'll be able to keep normal project pressure from turning into disastrous stress while writing code, and see how to effectively coordinate mentors, team leads, and developers in harmony.

You can learn all this stuff the hard way, but this book can save you time and pain. Read it, and you'll be a better developer.
