Accountability. Transparency. Responsibility. These are not words that are often applied to software development.

In this completely revised introduction to Extreme Programming (XP), Kent Beck describes how to improve your software development by integrating these highly desirable concepts into your daily development process.

Whether you have a small team that is already closely aligned with your customers or a large team in a gigantic or multinational organization, you will find in these pages a wealth of ideas to challenge, inspire, and encourage you and your team members to substantially improve your software development.

Every team can improve. Every team can begin improving today. Improvement is possible—beyond what we can currently imagine. Extreme Programming Explained, Second Edition, offers ideas to fuel your improvement for years to come.

Evan's Review: Too often people only think of Scrum when they think of Agile, forgetting the many brilliant concepts available to developers in Extreme Programming. While this book may be old, I consider it relevant (almost required reading) for any developer learning or using Agile. *Put simply, if you’re a developer you must read this book.
