*** Essential Skills for Agile Development ***

This book has an elegant yet highly effective minimalist style.
Rather than long theoretical discussion the book does what it does by
example - and there's plenty of example code given.
Overall the book covers many topics and issues related to agile
software development, including: keeping code fit;
handling inappropriate references; seperating database, UI and domain
logic;
unit testing and acceptance testing amongst others.The reason this book
is to be recommended to developers,
is that even if you're not doing full on "agile" development, there's
still plenty of useful material in it.
The lack of hype is also refreshing - the book focuses on examples and
shows good solutions. You should get it!http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/tg/detail/-/9993776726/ratiogroupltd-20/qid=1128944604/sr=8-1/ref=sr_8_xs_ap_i1_xgl14/002-3185742-7805624?v=glance&s=books&n=507846*** Agile Development with Iconix Process ***
"... because of this, we have been able to consistently deliver great
software based on the original core time-after-time ..."
"the authors ... identify an 'essential' list of agile practices
to follow, including aggressive testing and frequent small releases
..."
"... it is indeed rare for this level of detail to be given to a
single example ..."
"... finally a real world example with real-world solutions..."
(extracts from amazon.com)http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/ASIN/1590594649/ratiogroupltd-20?creative=327641&camp=14573&link_code=as1*** Agile and Iterative Development, A Manager's Guide ***
Using statistically significant research and large-scale case studies,
noted methods
expert Craig Larman presents the most convincing case ever made for
iterative development.
Larman offers a concise, information-packed summary of the key ideas
that drive all agile and iterative processes,
with the details of four noteworthy iterative methods: Scrum, XP, RUP,
and Evo.
This book is a must if you need to get a grip on the spectrum of agile
development techniques out there.http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/tg/detail/-/0131111558//ratiogroupltd-20/qid=1128944877/sr=1-1/ref=sr_1_1/002-3185742-7805624?v=glance&s=books** EVENTS ** USA **

"It is practically impossible to teach good programming style to
students that have had prior exposure
to BASIC; as potential programmers they are mentally mutilated beyond
hope of regeneration."
-Dijkstra

""The primary purpose of the DATA statement is to give names to
constants; instead of
referring to pi as 3.141592653589793 at every appearance, the variable
PI can be given
that value with a DATA statement and used instead of the longer form of
the constant.
This also simplifies modifying the program, should the value of pi
change."
- FORTRAN manual for Xerox computers

"C makes it easy to shoot yourself in the foot. C++ makes it
harder, but when you do, it blows away your whole leg."
- Bjarne Stroustrup

Star Trek:
Riker
- What the hell is Microsoft?
Data
- Allow me to explain. We will send this program, for some reason
called Windows, through the Borg command pathways. Once inside their
root command unit, it will begin consuming system resources at an
unstoppable rate.
Picard:
- But the Borg have the ability to adapt. Won't they alter their
processing systems to increase their storage capacity?
Data:
Yes, Captain. But when Windows detects this, it creates a new
version of itself known as an upgrade.
The use of resources increases exponentially with each iteration.
The Borg will not be able to adapt quickly enough.
Eventually all of their processing ability will be taken over and
none will be available for their normal operational functions.
Picard:
- Excellent work. This is even better than that unsolvable geometric
shape idea.
