Extreme Programming Explained: Embrace Change, 2nd Edition (The XP Series)

By Kent Beck, Cynthia Andres

“In this moment version of Extreme Programming Explained, Kent Beck organizes and offers 5 years’ worthy of reviews, development, and alter revolving round XP. while you are heavily drawn to realizing the way you and your group can begin down the trail of development with XP, you want to learn this book.”

Francesco Cirillo, leader government Officer, XPLabs S.R.L.

“The first version of this publication instructed us what XP was—it replaced the best way many folks take into consideration software program improvement. This moment variation takes it farther and provides us much more of the ‘why’ of XP, the motivations and the foundations in the back of the practices. this is often nice stuff. Armed with the ‘what’ and the ‘why,’ we will be able to now prepared out to expectantly paintings at the ‘how’: find out how to run our initiatives larger, and the way to get agile recommendations followed in our organizations.”

Dave Thomas, The Pragmatic Programmers LLC

“This booklet is dynamite! It used to be innovative while it first seemed many years in the past, and this re-creation is both profound. if you happen to insist on cookbook checklists, there’s a superb bankruptcy on ‘primary practices,’ yet i beg you to start by way of really considering the that means of the outlet sentence within the first bankruptcy of Kent Beck’s ebook: ‘XP is set social change.’ you might want to do no matter what it takes to make sure that each IT specialist and each IT manager—all the way in which as much as the CIO—has a replica of Extreme Programming Explained on his or her desk.”

Ed Yourdon, writer and advisor

“XP is a strong set of strategies for simplifying the method of software program layout, improvement, and trying out. it really is approximately minimalism and incrementalism, that are specially valuable rules whilst tackling advanced difficulties that require a stability of creativity and discipline.”

Michael A. Cusumano, Professor, MIT Sloan university of administration, and writer of The enterprise of Software

Extreme Programming Explained is the paintings of a skilled and passionate craftsman. Kent Beck has introduced jointly a compelling choice of principles approximately programming and administration that merits your complete cognizance. My basically pork is that our career has gotten to some degree the place such commonsense principles are categorised ‘extreme.’...”

Lou Mazzucchelli, Fellow, Cutter company know-how Council

“If your company is prepared for a metamorphosis within the approach it develops software program, there’s the sluggish incremental technique, solving issues one after the other, or the quick tune, leaping toes first into severe Programming. don't be apprehensive via the identify, it isn't that severe in any respect. it truly is typically strong outdated recipes and customary experience, well built-in jointly, removing the entire fats that has accrued over the years.”

Philippe Kruchten, UBC, Vancouver, British Columbia

“Sometimes revolutionaries get left at the back of because the circulate they began takes on a lifetime of its personal. during this ebook, Kent Beck exhibits that he continues to be sooner than the curve, best XP to its subsequent point. Incorporating 5 years of suggestions, this ebook takes a clean examine what it takes to boost higher software program in much less time and for much less cash. There are not any silver bullets right here, only a set of sensible ideas that, while used properly, may end up in dramatic advancements in software program improvement productivity.”

Mary Poppendieck, writer of Lean software program improvement: An Agile Toolkit

“Kent Beck has revised his vintage ebook according to 5 extra years of using and educating XP. He indicates how the trail to XP is either effortless and tough: it may be all started with fewer practices, and but it demanding situations groups to head farther than ever.”

William Wake, self reliant advisor

“With new insights, knowledge from event, and clearer factors of the artwork of utmost Programming, this version of Beck’s vintage might help many discover the dream of remarkable software program development.”

Joshua Kerievsky, writer of Refactoring to Patterns and Founder, commercial common sense, Inc.

“XP has replaced the way in which our thinks approximately software program improvement. Its awesome simplicity, concentrated execution, and insistence on fact-based making plans over hypothesis have set a brand new common for software program delivery.”

David Trowbridge, Architect, Microsoft Corporation

Accountability. Transparency. accountability. those are usually not phrases which are frequently utilized to software program improvement.

In this thoroughly revised creation to severe Programming (XP), Kent Beck describes the best way to increase your software program improvement through integrating those hugely fascinating strategies into your day-by-day improvement process.

The first version of Extreme Programming Explained is a vintage. It received awards for its then-radical principles for making improvements to small-team improvement, resembling having builders write automatic checks for his or her personal code and having the complete staff plan weekly. a lot has replaced in 5 years. This thoroughly rewritten moment variation expands the scope of XP to groups of any dimension through suggesting a application of continuing development established on:

  • Five center values in step with excellence in software program development
  • Eleven rules for placing these values into action
  • Thirteen fundamental and 11 corollary practices that will help you push improvement prior its present company and technical limitations
