See eXtreme Programming (XP) in action at the hands of an XP master-and learn Microsoft .NET and C# programming in the process! In this fast-paced, hands-on exposition, Ron Jeffries-one of the leading voices and practitioners in the XP community-demonstrates that you can write well-designed, resilient code incrementally and safely, while minimizing your investment in speculative up-front design. As Jeffries builds his sample application, you get firsthand insights into what successful XP development looks like, complete with real-world challenges such as the eleventh-hour change order. For further practice and study, you can download all the author's code-including the missteps-so you can see XP and agile concepts in action and assess how they fit into your own work.
Pair program with an XP master, discovering how to: * Streamline and simplify the software development process * Work more effectively as part of an XP development team * Reduce missteps by designing, testing, and refining code in increments * Receive clearer specifications and feedback from customers * Write cleaner, more expressive code-and weed out more bugs * Conserve resources by planning and reassessing progress as you go * Maintain a sustainable work pace-and avoid burnout * Step up delivery dates, shipping the most crucial features first * Improve customer satisfaction!
