Venkat Subramaniam @venkats and Andy Hunt
Adapting to change is key to successful software development.
Many books and articles have been written describing agile, adaptable approaches to writing software. But somehow, reading about software development isn’t the same as actually doing it, so readers typically come away uninspired—few books describe what agile development actually feels like, or how to tell if you’re doing it well.
Now you can see for yourself what agile is all about. Not just “what you should do,” but also “how it really works.” Noted authors and consultants Venkat Subramaniam and Andy Hunt share their experiences and reveal pragmatic, practical agile development practices that work in the real world of modern, commercial software development.
You’ll see how to:
- Establish and maintain an agile working environment
- Deliver what users really want
- Use personal agile techniques for better coding and debugging
- Use effective collaborative techniques for better teamwork
- Move to an agile approach
You’ll succeed in delivering and meeting your user’s expectations. 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.
Of course, you could learn all this stuff the hard way, but this book can save you time and pain. Read it today, and you’ll be a better developer—today.
