Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"I was familiar with some of the practices mentioned since I own other books from The Pragmatic Bookshelf, but this book brings a lot of those ideas together and presents them in an clear, concise, organized, format. I would highly recommend this book to a new developer or to a development team that wanted to get 'agile,'."

—Scott Splavec, Senior Software Engineer
