This book could have been called Estimating and Planning Agile Projects. Instead,
it’s called Agile Estimating and Planning. The difference may appear subtle
but it’s not. The title makes it clear that the estimating and planning
processes must themselves be agile. Without agile estimating and planning, we
cannot have agile projects.

Pro Agile .NET Development with SCRUM guides you through a real-world ASP.NET project and shows how agile methodology is put into practice.
There is plenty of literature on the theory behind agile methodologies, but no book on the market takes the concepts of agile practices and applies these in a practical manner to an end-to-end ASP.NET project, especially the estimating, requirements and management aspects of a project. Pro Agile .
If you leave the ofﬁce with more projects than you started the day with, this book is for you. This isn’t an abstract or theoretical book; Johanna offers practical advice that will help you manage your project portfolio—whether you are a team lead, a middle manager, or a senior executive. Esther Derby Author and consultant, Esther Derby Associates, Inc. At last! Now, we can get serious about extending an agile approach beyond individual projects and begin to extract further value from our agile programs and portfolios.
This book approaches two contemporary topics in the field of software engineer-
ing that have had more than a significant impact in the way the modern software is
being developed. Agile movement raised the role of experience and people in the
centre stage having a profound impact on large and small software organizations
alike. Research and practice have shown that agile is penetrating practically in
all industrial domains including the globally operating, hardware-bound software
Our pharmaceutical and medical organizations are living organisms need feeding,
growth and development to be competitive and can strive to survive otherwise it will
degenerate by the tough competition from the surroundings. Quality is a major tool
for agile and competitive organization. Quality need to be monitored and to be built
into the product so it needs quality control which need highly accurate, precise,
sensitive and valid analytical procedures to judge the quality throughout the
Many books discuss Agile from a theoretical or academic perspective. Becoming Agile takes a different approach and focuses on explaining Agile from a case-study perspective. Agile principles are discussed, explained, and then demonstrated in the context of a case study that flows throughout the book. The case study is based on a mixture of the author's real-world experiences.
Agile Oracle Application Express shows how skilled, motivated, and self-organizing developers can realize extraordinary commercial benefits from Oracle Application Express. The secret is to couple Application Express with an agile software development approach. This book leads the way.
Oracle Application Express is well-suited to agile processes, with its support for rapid prototyping and team development. Application Express supports a gamut of enabling
A Distributed Monitoring and Reconfiguration Approach for Adaptive Network Computing includes about Agile Defense and Adaptability, Adaptability for Increased Resilience, Adaptive Computing Research Problems, Distributed Service Monitoring for Anomaly Detection and Adaptability, Anomaly Detection.
This book will explain the Object Oriented approach to programming and through the use of small exercises, for which feedback is provided, develop some practical skills as well.
At the end of the book one larger case study will be used to illustrate the application of the techniques. This will culminate in the development of a complete C# program which can be downloaded with this book.
Topics covered include: Abstraction, Inheritance, Polymorphism, Object Oriented Software Analysis and Design, The Unified Modelling Language (UML), Agile Programming and Test Driven Development...
You have a great idea for an app, but where do you begin? Objective-C is the universal language of iPhone, iPad, and Mac apps, and Objective-C for Absolute Beginners, Second Edition starts you on the path to mastering this language and its latest release.
Using a hands-on approach, you'll learn how to think in programming terms, how to use Objective-C to construct program logic, and how to synthesize it all into working apps.
DevOps for Developers delivers a practical, thorough introduction to approaches, processes and tools to foster collaboration between software development and operations. Efforts of Agile software development often end at the transition phase from development to operations. This book covers the delivery of software, this means “the last mile”, with lean practices for shipping the software to production and making it available to the end users, together with the integration of operations with earlier project phases (elaboration, construction, transition). ...
This book aims to instil the reader with an understanding of the Object Oriented approach to
programming and aims to develop some practical skills along the way. These practical skills will
be developed by small exercises that the reader will be invited to undertake and the feedback that
will be provided.
The concepts that will be explained and skills developed are in common use among programmers
using many modern object oriented languages and are thus transferrable from one language to another.
It’s not surprising then that the planning-related books in the
corner of my office disagree heavily with each other. Some
focus on business strategy, others on engineering and
scheduling processes (the traditional focus of project planning),
and a few on understanding and designing for customers. But
more distressing than their disagreements is that these books
fail to acknowledge that other approaches even exist. This is
odd because none of these perspectives—business, technology,
customer—can ever exist without the others.
Nowadays, Agile application development is usually done at a fast pace when many developers are working on the same piece of code. Every so often, this becomes a real challenge if there’s no permanent control over consistency of the project source. It is often impossible to force lazy and/or busy programmers to execute tests before and after each of their commits. Continuous Integration is a well-known life saver for distributed development environments with TeamCity being one of the best and easy-to-use instruments utilizing it. ...
Agile marketing is about taking small steps, minimizing risk, and failing fast—all in an effort to figure out what works as efficiently as possible. As a methodology, it focuses on an iterative approach to planning and executing, learning quickly, and having a bias towards action. Agile marketing means listening to what your customer wants, programming your ads to reflect relevant topics, updating, and measuring. So why does agile marketing matter in display advertising? Because display is growing and marketers can’t afford to rely on static text and image ads to meet ROI objectives. ...
Since the publication of this book in the Netherlands in 2001, our approach to dynamic enterprise architecture has taken off. We were the first to address the everyday ups and downs that organizations face in enterprise architecture. Our initial audience—organizations that had some experience with enterprise architecture and those new to the concept— benefited from that first edition.
The module ‘Silicon Valley – A Change Ecosystem’ focuses on the infrastructure and cultural view on
Switzerland and Germany may not be the best places to study rapid and radical business transforma-
tions. Although considerable attention is paid to organizational and personal agility also in Europe, the
most comprehensive ‘ecosystem’ for IT-enabled change is Silicon Valley. This was true in the peak of
the bubble economy and is still true in times of sharp economic downturn.
