Agile software development is a popular development process that continues to reshape philosophies on the connections between disciplined processes and agile practices. In Software Development Rhythms, authors Lui and Chan explain how adopting one practice and combining it with another builds upon the flexibility of agile practices to create a type of "synergy" defined as software development rhythms. The authors demonstrate how these rhythms can be harmonized to achieve synergies, making them stronger together than they would be apart.

Agile publishing for agile developers
Under Construction The book you’re reading is still under development. As part of our Beta book program, we’re releasing this copy well before a normal book would be released. That way you’re able to get this content a couple of months before it’s available in ﬁnished form, and we’ll get feedback to make the book even better. The idea is that everyone wins! Be warned. The book has not had a full technical edit, so it will contain errors. It has not been copyedited, so it will be full of typos and other weirdness. And there’s...
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 .
This book is written for Rails 2. As this printing of the book is going to press, the current generally available Gem version of Rails is 2.2.2. The code in this book has been tested against this version. This book started life with the same text as the Second Edition, which covered Rails 1.2.6. Pages containing this original text have a gray heading and footer. As we migrate content to Rails 2, you’ll ﬁnd the header color changes to red. The Rails core team is continuing to work on Rails 2.
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.

alike. Research and practice have shown that agile is penetrating practically in
all industrial domains including the globally operating, hardware-bound software
