CAIRO BOOKS's Description
A Practical Approach To Building Small To Medium Software Systems For Real
Based on more than 100 actual commercial projects, this book clearly explains
how to run an agile software development project that delivers high-quality,
high-value solutions to business clients. It concentrates on the practical,
social, business, and management aspects as well as the technical issues
Professor Holcombe successfully connects readers with the wave of "Agile 2.0"
concepts that take the techniques of agile development and place them in the
service of business goals. Since it is widely believed that the use of Windows
XP will become much more common in coming years, readers should be armed with
cutting-edge knowledge of the latest practices in the field. Further features
of the book include:
Case studies provide real-world examples and describe how XP was introduced
into the environment
Analysis is provided to help readers determine which elements of XP are
suitable for the unique challenges and environments for different projects
Problems of a failing agile project and how they can be fixed are covered,
including insight into which managerial techniques can be employed
An Instructor's Guide provides practical advice on how to motivate students,
organize real group projects, and deal, in a simple and effective way, with
many of the problems that arise
A sample syllabus, sample tests, and additional case study information are
available on an instructor's password-protected ftp site
Running an Agile Software Development Project is an indispensable guide for
professional software developers, engineers, and project managers interested in
learning how to use agile processes. It is also a valuable textbook for
advanced undergraduate- and graduate-level students in computer engineering and
software engineering courses.
