Agile Technical Practices Distilled

Pedro M. Santos, Marco Consolaro, Alessandro Di Gioia

Learning the common fundamental software development practices can help you become a better programmer. The number of popular technical practices has grown exponentially in the last few years. The ability to select what to focus on has become more important than the ability to learn itself.

We have been working in the trenches of software development for many years. While mentoring and coaching other developers and teaching software design, we created a lot of content and shared many professional stories of real-life among us. From feedback received, we deemed it wise to structure the information in a logical sequence, crafting a journey of learning that has proven efficacious so far. We address all pivotal principles, eschewing unnecessary details.

This book uses the term Agile as a wide umbrella and covers Agile principles and practices, as well as most methodologies associated with it.

You'll begin by discovering various techniques used in the pair programming approach, introducing discipline while writing code. You'll then learn to safely change the design of your code using refactoring. While learning these techniques, you'll also explore various best practices to write efficient tests. The concluding chapters of the book delve deep into the SOLID principles - the five design principles that you can use to make your software more understandable, flexible and maintainable.

By the end of the book, you will have discovered new ideas for improving your software design skills, the relationship within your team, and the way your business works.
