Agile revolutionized the way people think about developing software, but there are literally dozens of ways that you can "go agile." While one team may find a particular agile practice easy to use, another team may find the same practice devilishly difficult. This book demystifies agile methodologies: why they're designed the way they are, what problems they address, and the values, principles, and ideas they embody.

Learning Agile helps you recognize the principles that apply to development problems specific to your team, company, and projects. You'll discover how to use that information to guide your choice of methodologies and practices. With this book you'll learn: Values that effective software teams possess The methodologies that embody those values The practices that make up those methodologies And principles that help you bring those values, methodologies, and practices to your team and your company.

Book features :

  • Understand the purpose behind agile’s core values and principles
  • Learn Scrum’s emphasis on project management, self-organization, and collective commitment
  • Focus on software design and architecture with XP practices such as test-first and pair programming
  • Use Lean thinking to empower your team, eliminate waste, and deliver software fast
  • Learn how Kanban’s practices help you deliver great software by managing flow
  • Adopt agile practices and principles with an agile coach

About the Author

Andrew Stellman, despite being raised a New Yorker, has lived in Pittsburgh twice. The first time was when he graduated from Carnegie Mellon's School of Computer Science, and then again when he and Jenny were starting their consulting business and writing their first project management book for O'Reilly. When he moved back to his hometown, his first job after college was as a programmer at EMI-Capitol Records--which actually made sense, since he went to LaGuardia High School of Music and Art and the Performing Arts to study cello and jazz bass guitar.
