This book is a comprehensive, pragmatic tutorial on Agile Development and eXtreme programming, written by a software developer for software developers.
Agile Development, in particular, eXtreme Programming (XP), has been gaining a lot of momentum because it can effectively address the problems plaguing software development such as mis-understanding customers’ requirements, missing deadlines, over-budget, conflicts between customers and developers and poor maintainability of legacy systems.
However, it is so difficult to teach the skills needed to be agile. In 2002, we, the Macau Productivity and Technology Center (CPTTM), started to hold courses on XP and Object Oriented design to teach the skills by hiring a well known software training and consulting company to do the teaching. While the instructor was very professional and instructive and the students were happy, they didn’t acquire the skills taught.
