Rather than asking "How can we do agile at scale in our big complex organization?" a different and deeper question is, "How can we have the same simple structure that Scrum offers for the organization, and be agile at scale rather than do agile?" This profound insight is at the heart of LeSS (Large-Scale Scrum). In Large-Scale Scrum: More with LeSS, Craig Larman and Bas Vodde have distilled over a decade of experience in large-scale LeSS adoptions towards a simpler organization that delivers more flexibility with less complexity, more value with less waste, and more purpose with less prescription. Targeted to anyone involved in large-scale development, Large-Scale Scrum: More with LeSS offers straight-to-the-point guides for how to be agile at scale, with LeSS.
Shell Programming in Unix, Linux and OS X
Shell Programming in Unix, Linux and OS X (the Fourth Edition of Kochan and Wood's classic Unix Shell Programming tutorial) can help any modern Unix, Linux, or OS X user get more done faster with their operating system of choice. One of the world's most respected Unix programming books, it has been updated throughout to fully address today's widely-used platforms, including Oracle Solaris, Mac OS X and Linux. Learn exactly how to take control of your systems, and work more efficiently by harnessing the shell's power to solve many common problems.
Refactoring to Modern Java LiveLessons
Many Java developers today are working on applications written before the release of Java SE 8. Even after Java 8 is adopted for new features, it's likely that these legacy applications will not take full advantage of Java 8 without significant refactoring. In Refactoring to Modern Java LiveLessons, Java Champion Trisha Gee discusses the benefits of using Java 8 and shows how to identify code to refactor. She also demonstrates how Java 8 can improve performance and the benefits of applying Java 8 idioms. In this video training, Trisha provides hands-on techniques using a real application, Morphia, written in Java 6, to show when and how to apply the new features in Java 8 to an existing mature code base.
