From the Publisher
Presents a revolutionary paradigm that will instill within you the values of a software craftsman and make you a better programmer—but only if you work at it.
Robert C. Martin introduces the disciplines, techniques, tools, and practices of true software craftsmanship. This book is packed with practical advice–about everything from estimating and coding to refactoring and testing.
Uncle Bob presents the universal rules of software architecture that will help you dramatically improve developer productivity throughout the life of any software system.
Uncle Bob describes what Agile is in no uncertain terms, stripping away misunderstandings and distractions that have made it harder to use than was originally intended, and how Agile can help you bring true professionalism to software development.
Provides a pragmatic, technical, and prescriptive guide to the foundational disciplines of software craftsmanship and a discussion of the standard and ethics developers and programmers should be following.
“It is the best pragmatic application of Lean principles to software I have ever seen in print.” —James O. Coplien, Founder of the Pasteur Organizational Patterns project
“Some technical books inspire and teach; some delight and amuse. Rarely does a technical book do all four of these things.”—George Bullock Senior Program Manager Microsoft Corp.
“A good architecture comes from understanding it more as a journey than as a destination, more as an ongoing process of enquiry than as a frozen artifact.” — Kevlin Henney
“What is in the world of Agile development is nothing compared to what could be. This book is Bob’s perspective on what to focus on to get to that ‘what could be.’ And he’s been there, so it’s worth listening.” –Kent Beck
“. . . [A] timely and humble reminder of the ever-increasing complexity of our programmatic world and how we owe it to the legacy of humankind–and to ourselves–to practice ethical development.” — Stacia Heimgartner Viscardi, CST & Agile Mentor
