eXtreme .NET shows developers and team leaders
how to incorporate eXtreme Programming (XP)
practices with .NET-connected technologies to create
high-quality, low-cost code that will build better software.
This practical, realistic guidebook systematically covers key elements of
XP methodology in the specific context of the Microsoft .NET Framework, Visual
Studio .NET, Visual C#, and related Microsoft .NET-enabled applications. Leading
.NET and XP mentor Dr. Neil Roodyn covers planning, task definition, test-driven
development, user interfaces, refactoring, spiking, pair programming, and much
more. Dr. Neil offers field-proven advice for everything from automating builds
to integrating third-party libraries. He also incorporates valuable exercises and
presents a start-to-finish case study that shows exactly how XP and Microsoft
.NET interoperate throughout an entire development project.
The Microsoft .NET Framework is today's most productive development platform.
XP represents a fundamental breakthrough in building higher-value software.
Combine them: transform your team into an eXtreme .NET team that can
accomplish more than ever before. This book will show you how—starting with
your very next project.
