XP is taking off like a rocket, rapidly becoming the world's most popular agile methodology.

You'll learn how to create a vision of your proposed software system, write effective user stories and acceptance tests, and plan for regular releases and iterations. The book identifies best practices for XP testing, "coding with intention," integration, and refactoring -- showing how developers can overcome the challenges early XP implementers have encountered, and achieve the powerful benefits XP can provide. For all software developers, architects, analysts, and project managers interested in XP and agile methodologies.
