Extreme Programming in Action: Practical Experiences from Real World Projects Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The introduction of XP has brought a breath of fresh air to programming, bringing a simple, disciplined and clean approach to software development and a renewed emphasis on customer involvement and teamwork. It is a re-examination of software development practices. It claims to offer a lightweight, streamlined approach, which tackles problems efficiently and reduces the cost of software. And being a lightweight process it is simple and enjoyable to use. But how well does this claim stand up in practice?

Martin Lippert, Steffan Roock and Henning Wolf demonstrate how XP has worked in real projects. The authors explain each technique and demonstrate how eXreme Programming can be most successfully put to real use.

eXtreme Programming In Action shows you

* How XP practices measure up on concrete development projects.

* What effect project organisation, team roles and integrating legacy systems may have

* What works, what doesn't, and what to beware of.

Written with the benefit of three years of highly technical and practical experience on a variety of XP projects, eXtreme Programming in Action is an objective and results-based assessment of XP techniques.

Book News Annotation:

Based on their professional experience, the authors define the 12 principles of extreme programming and offer recommendations on how they can be put into practice. The second half of the book discusses the roles and organization adopted in the framework of an extreme programming project, adaptation to different contexts, and artifacts that can be used for an extreme programming project. Originally published in German by dpunkt.verlag as Software entwickeln mit extreme programming.

Synopsis:

* Covers advanced topics such as project organization, team roles and integrating legacy systems

Synopsis:

This book presents the link between the more theoretical explanation of each technique to the practical effects of using it. A concise introduction to the twelve practices of XP provides the basis for understanding how they operate when used in various project settings.

Synopsis:

Real-life experience of eXtreme Programming from XP programmers.

eXtreme Programming (XP) is a hot new development methodology for building software systems quickly without sacrificing quality. Authors Lippert, Wolf and Rook have three years' experience of working on professional XP projects. The projects range from application via prototype to framework development and cover project sizes from one person month to more than 400 person months. Until now XP has been described in outline by those promoting its advantages, this book provides objective examples of how it can be used in practice.

* An objective assessment of XP, grounded in real world experience, and not written by those championing this method

* Invaluable combination of theory and practice

* Covers advanced topics such as project organization, team roles and integrating legacy systems
