    One thought on “The Art of Agile Development”

    1. "The Art of Agile Development" by James Shore and Shane Warden is a book that is primarily focused on explaining Agile to people who want to adopt Agile software development practices for their team. The bulk of book is divided into sections based on a categorization on agile practices. There is a chapter on practices that help with thinking, one for collaborating, one for releasing, one for planning, and one for developing. In each of these chapters, there is a section devoted to a specific pra [...]

    2. Admittedly, this is my first complete book that had anything to do with extreme programming. I'm very familiar with Scrum, but am relatively new to pair programming, TDD and the like. However, where I am in my professional career, this was of the utmost importance. If you are in an organization that is moving to Agile practices, this book is not only helpful, but necessary.

    3. short version: A bit dogmatic, but these dudes have done their homework, and if you can tolerate the preachy "seriously, you need to do exactly what I'm describing" tone of it all, there are lots of valuable gems buried within. The bad news: you're going to need support from management to make all this work, and even with that support, it could be hairy in a big organization and/or with a lot of legacy code behind you. Also ALSO: Kanban gets mentioned in here several, albeit not by name--and I f [...]

    4. This book is about the XP (Extreme Programming) methodology. But it's useful for anybody working in an agile environment, or looking for applying agile practices. Practices like pair programming, retrospectives, iteration plannings, agile team composition, energized work, informative workspaces etc are described in great detail. It feels like a nice blend between philosophical questions and daily practice.

    5. As its name indicates, The Art of Agile Development describes in much detail just that. It does so by covering one species of the Agile genus, Extreme Programming (XP). According to the authors, a key component of the agile method is to work in small steps; the software architecture should be manifest in incremental stages, each one responsive to a direct need. Perhaps in line with this approach, the book's chapters consist of a very short intro delimiting a topic followed by many short (1-5 pag [...]

    6. A newbie to the agile methodology introduced me to my very first book – The Art of Agile Development. Having had a few months of experience in the ‘agile’ environment, this book was a reading pleasure.The book opens up to briefing about the agile methodology and lists out the inherent thinking behind this practice in the field of software development. Though the focus over the ‘Scrum’ type is almost nil, but the book doesn’t let you lose out on your grip even if you are a practitione [...]

    7. An usefully detailed discussion of the roles, processes, practices and principles of agile development. Most of the practices are taken from Extreme Programming, but some have been added. It's hard to explain how different this way of working is from traditional models. Shore explains the roles of programmers, testers, managers, product owners, investors and more. The book is filled with real-world experience, and you come away thinking, "I wish my company could do this!"

    8. I strongly recommend this book if you work in a Agile shop or you are considering moving toward Agile and/or XP. I am a strong advocate of Agile Software Development. The use of pair programming and test driven development have elevated my productivity significantly.There are some limitations to this book. It is not written in the most inviting manner. Compared to other books, such as the Lean Startup, it is a bit thick to get through some sections. Compared to the Gang of Four Design Patterns i [...]

    9. It's hard to give a reference book 5 stars but I truly think that what Shore did with this book is special. It feels comprehensive without being overwhelming. It is based around practical ideas. It acknowledges its limitations. It is stern without being dogmatic. And it's written in a way that is accessible and easy to understand. I don't hold any illusions that I'll be able to turn my development team into a truly Agile/XP house but Shore has provided a script and steps that I can take to impro [...]

    10. Lots of good ideas on Agile in general, however the book generally champions eXtreme Programming which occasionally obfuscates some of those good ideas.There are a sections that are specifically devoted to get XP up and running -- these are basically waste if you aren't going to implement (or participate in) XP. Other sections that covers things like "10 minute build", "Energised Work", limiting yourself to tasks that can be accomplished in a few hours (and avoiding carrying over between days!), [...]

    11. Praise for The Art of Agile Development“Jim Shore and Shane Warden expertly explain the practices and benefits of ExtremeProgramming. They offer advice from their real-world experiences in leading teams.They answer questions about the practices and show contraindications—ways that apractice may be misapplied. They offer alternatives youcan try if there are impedimentsto applying a practice, such as the lack of an on-site customer.“The explanations do not stop with just the practices. Discu [...]

    12. Ottimo libro. Dopo una prima parte introduttiva, ma un po' noiosa e ripetitiva, entra nel vivo delle tecniche di sviluppo agile spiegandole molto bene, anche se, necessariamente, in modo slegato da qualsiasi linguaggio di programmazione o tool correlato. La terza parte, molto breve, spiega come adattare i metodi agili a situazioni particolari. Purtroppo è molto incentrato sui team "ideali", formati da almeno 5 o 6 programmatori impegnati in progetti mediamente lunghi (12-24 mesi), e difficilmen [...]

    13. This book reminded me of the guy at the party who had a few too many drinks but really, really wants to tell you all about the new religion/philosophy/band that he has discovered and wants to tell you all about.In great detail.I made it about 1/2 way through, and it started repeating itself, so I abandoned it.The book talks about a lot of stuff that makes sense, the idea of Agile development has some good points, but this book was just a little too sure of itself to be a good overview for a non- [...]

    14. This is an amazingly good book on agile and agile practices. The book describes XP, but should go on the reading list for anyone working with scrum or agile development in general. The book describes the agile practices and also manages to clearly describe the effect and feedback loops between different practices. When you are ready to move beyond the 'simple' agile frame of scrum this is the book to guide you while adding specific agile practices to scrum.

    15. A must read for all novice practitioners who want to familiarize themselves with the concepts of agile development, or for those who are already consider themselves as experienced, to refine and enrich their knowledge. In fact, whether we want to handle XP, Scrum, DSDM or any other agile methodology, we should take a look at this book, because it provides a good theoretical foundation on which to base our development projects.

    16. I like this book so far, reading it in very on off fashion. I got introduced to agile development a couple of years ago and have since worked with a company who used it to develop a software product for us. The book is quite academic and I feel at this early stage (about 1/3 read) that is another tome from which I will take elements and use in my work. Another methodology like prince -so steal the best bits!

    17. I bought this book years ago and read it. Now, years later, it still feels actual and not outdated at all.I notice that from time to time I open it and read some parts in it and they still make me think "aha!" or "just what I thought too", "yep, noticing that". Still has it's practical value on the floor.

    18. This book describes the whole process of a development with many practical tips in every development´s phase.I've learnt the concepts of root cause analysis and fail fast in this book and they are really important now in my daily work.The only thing I don´t like about the book is that the book assumes developers are the constraint on the team.

    19. Fantastic book to start with for anyone wanting to know more about Agile Software Development. James does a good job of showing multiple methodologies and frameworks. It is clear, James is a practitioner and speaks with authority.

    20. Excellent book. Opened my eyes on the methods we're already using. XP, or extreme programing seems interesting, since the overall work is supposed to be decreased. It does require a high level of mindfulness, so, extreme seems to mean with a sense of purpose. Recommend this book to any developer.

    21. A must read for anyone that wants to learn and understand XP pratices, lots of tips from the author on how, to build or improve your process. A great guide for Scrum Masters that wants to improve in Agile.

    22. A really solid intro to Agile as implemented in XP. I mostly liked the organization, and the individual examples served well, but one more big example of how it all fit together would have been nice. Gave me a lot to think about in organizing development tasks.

    23. I must admit I only skimmed this. It's full of powerful ideas, but I'd already been exposed to many of them through working at ThoughtWorks. Still, I think this would be a really thorough introduction to Agile/XP for someone who hadn't worked in that way before.

    24. More of an XP focus, this book contains the definition of 'slack' which will be an important principal for how we balance projects with necessary technical and productivity improvements.Many managers in the team have a copy of this.

    25. Eye opener to the many practices and the results of those practices from the XP world. Well written with many practical examples of the application of these practices. Tremendous focus on the value of people in software development.

    26. Lots of good examples and tips.Sometimes a bit hard to read for longer periods of time. The style in which is written can sometimes put you to sleep, even though the content is actually good and applicable in real-life.

    27. Great book, really practical and teach me a lot about Agile development, far more than the little process description covered in Software engineering courses.

    28. It is a good book in general, but I haven't fully enjoyed it since I already read most of the things described on this book.
