These nine software development practices could save our industry.
By adopting nine key technical practices, you’ll learn to say what, why, and for whom before how; build in small batches; integrate continuously; collaborate; create CLEAN code; write the test first; specify behaviors with tests; implement the design last; and refactor legacy code. You’ll understand why technical practices such as refactoring and test-first development are critical to building maintainable software. You’ll avoid the pitfalls teams encounter, and dramatically reduce the risk associated with building software—realizing significant savings in both the short and long term.
Software developers will find hands-on, pragmatic advice. Managers, customers, and product owners will gain deeper insight into vital processes. With a deeper understanding of the principles behind the practices, you’ll build software that’s easier and less costly to maintain and extend.
