This hands-on software engineering volume fills the gap between the way users learn to program and the way software is written in professional practice with an interactive, project-oriented approach that includes guidelines for using XP methods for software engineering , tutorials on the core aspects of XP, and detailed descriptions of what to expect when applying XP to a development project. Using methodologies that are flexible enough to meet the changing needs of future clients, the book provides a detailed description of what happens in a typical cycle during an XP development effort and shows users what to do instead of telling them what to do. The volume provides an introduction to the Core XP practices, and details pair programming, understanding why we test first, the iteration, shaping the development process and core practices and working examples of core practices. For software engineers, developers, and programmers , and managers who want to learn about XP.

Extreme Software Engineering. A Hands-On Approach bridges the gap between academic and professional software practices by providing the format to incorporate a hands-on project into a are engineering course. This is the first textbook designed to teach XP methods in a traditional software engineering course. Students learn real world communication skids by working together in teams to test, code and create real-life XP software products for clients. With Extreme Programming, the client becomes the central part of the development team, creating a bottom-up design in which only necessary features are added to the system on an as-needed basis. This book is also ideal for professionals who want a concise, hands-on introduction to XP.
