Appropriate for any course on software engineering methodologies, especially courses on XP, or "agile" and/or "light" methodologies.
XP is rapidly becoming the world's most popular agile methodology. Now, there's a readable, concise guide that brings together all the guidance and best practices students need to succeed with XP. The authors begin by introducing the key practices that developers must take to heart in order to make XP work, and the key players in an XP project-including developers, managers, and customers. They demonstrate how to create a vision of any proposed software system, write effective user stories and acceptance tests, and plan for regular releases and iterations. They present best practices for XP testing, "coding with intention," integration, and refactoring, showing how to overcome key challenges early XP implementers have encountered, and achieve the powerful benefits XP can provide.
