Extreme Programming (XP) may be the world's hottest software methodology: a lightweight, programmer-friendly approach that is delivering breakthrough results in a wide range of projects worldwide. This book brings together the proceedings of the first global XP conference: the collected "best practices" wisdom from the world's leading XP practitioners. This collection brings together case studies, experiences, and research related to all aspects of XP. It starts with the foundations, then moves on to process, practices, tool support, experiences, and the future: opportunities to apply XP in an even wider range of projects and applications. Among the many highlights: Martin Fowler's discussion of the role of design in XP methodologies; new insights into scalability and organization; an in-depth analysis of XP pair programming; new attempts to integrate XP with UML; and exciting new approaches to rapid modeling of software systems. For software professionals concerned with accelerating software development and improving software quality throughout their organizations.show more
