Comprehensive, pragmatic tutorial on Agile Development
and eXtreme programming written by one of the founding
father of Agile Development.
Teaches software developers how to get projects done on
time, and on budget using the power of Agile Development.
Uses real-world case studies to show how to of plan, test,
refactor, and pair program using eXtreme programming.
Focuses on solving customer oriented systems problems
using UML and Design Patterns
Written by a software developer for software developers, this book is a unique collection of the latest software development methods. The author includes OOD, UML, Design Patterns, Agile and XP methods with a detailed description of a complete software design for reusable programs in C++ and Java. Using a practical, problem-solving approach, it shows how to develop an object-oriented applicationfrom the early stages of analysis, through the low-level design and into the implementation. Walks readers through the designer's thoughts showing the errors, blind alleys, and creative insights that occur throughout the software design process. The book covers: Statics and Dynamics; Principles of Class Design; Complexity Management; Principles of Package Design; Analysis and Design; Patterns and Paradigm Crossings. Explains the principles of OOD, one by one, and then demonstrates them with numerous examples, completely worked-through designs, and case studies. Covers traps, pitfalls, and work arounds in the application of C++ and OOD and then shows how Agile methods can be used. Discusses the methods for designing and developing big software in detail. Features a three-chapter, in-depth, single case study of a building security system. For Software Engineers, Programmers, and Analysts who want to understand how to design object oriented software with state of the art methods.
