Back cover copy

The introduction of XP has brought a breath of fresh air to programming, bringing a simple, disciplined and clean approach to software development and a renewed emphasis on customer involvement and teamwork. It is a re-examination of software development practices. It claims to offer a lightweight, streamlined approach, which tackles problems efficiently and reduces the cost of software. And being a lightweight process it is simple and enjoyable to use. But how well does this claim stand up in practice? Martin Lippert, Steffan Roock and Henning Wolf demonstrate how XP has worked in real projects. The authors explain each technique and demonstrate how eXreme Programming can be most successfully put to real use. eXtreme Programming In Action shows you * How XP practices measure up on concrete development projects. * What effect project organisation, team roles and integrating legacy systems may have * What works, what doesn't, and what to beware of. Written with the benefit of three years of highly technical and practical experience on a variety of XP projects, eXtreme Programming in Action is an objective and results-based assessment of XP techniques.show more
