Extreme Programming (XP) is a fundamentally different way to create software: simple, yet disciplined, lightweight yet powerful, flexible yet rigorous. It's catching on like wildfire, as developers who try it discover not only its effectiveness, but the pleasure it returns to their work. Extreme Programming Applied is the place to start for any developer or project manager preparing to use XP for the first time. In this book, two pioneers in XP practice offer a complete introduction to applying XP at all stages of the software development lifecycle -- design, testing, implementation, and deployment. They introduce XP's key principles in the context of actual development challenges, explaining why XP's "soft" approach is more appropriate to software development than the "civil engineering" paradigms that are so widespread nowadays. This book goes beyond explaining XP's elements: it shows how the pieces fit together, demonstrating exactly how to make XP work for real projects in real organizations. For all project managers, developers, software engineers, and others interested in more effective, flexible approaches to software development.

Back cover copy

Extreme Programming (XP) is a significant departure from traditional software development methods, one that is ushering in a change for both developers and business people. It is an agile methodology, which enables highly productive teams to produce quality software from rapidly changing or unclear requirements. XP is disciplined software craftsmanship, elevating best practices in software analysis, design, testing, implementation, and project management to a new level. "Extreme Programming Applied" helps you begin using the principles behind this revolutionary concept. Even as the popularity of XP grows, many programmers and developers are still seeking practical advice on getting started. They find themselves in search of an XP roadmap, one that points to paths around the obstacles. "Extreme Programming Applied" is just that roadmap, a pragmatic guide to getting started with Extreme Programming. It helps programmers and project managers take their first steps toward applying the XP discipline. This book is not a tutorial, however. It uses real-world experience to educate readers about how to apply XP in their organizations. The authors offer guidelines for implementing XP, illustrating key points with valuable stories from successful XP pioneers. 0201616408B09172001
