With Early Release ebooks, you get books in their earliest form — the author's raw and unedited content as he or she writes — so you can take advantage of these technologies long before the official release of these titles. You'll also receive updates when significant changes are made, new chapters as they're written, and the final ebook bundle.

Agile revolutionized the way people think about developing software, but there are literally dozens of ways that you can "go agile." While one team may find a particular agile practice easy to use, another team may find the same practice devilishly difficult. This book demystifies agile methodologies: why they’re designed the way they are, what problems they address, and the values, principles, and ideas they embody.

Learning Agile helps you recognize the principles that apply to development problems specific to your team, company, and projects. You’ll discover how to use that information to guide your choice of methodologies and practices.

With this book you’ll learn:

  • Values that effective software teams possess
  • The methodologies that embody those values
  • The practices that make up those methodologies
  • And principles that help you bring those values, methodologies, and practices to your team and your company

      Comments about oreilly Learning Agile:

      I bought the early release "raw" version of this book as a digital download before it was published.

      Although I am no stranger to traditional project management, I wanted to get a full grasp of Agile and its benefits.

      After researching all I could online, I turned to this book to help fill in the blanks, and boy did it ever.

      This was an extremely helpful book in putting the Agile world into perspective for me. I was particularly impressed by the fact that it went a long way to show that Agile is an approach and way of thinking more than blindly executed methodologies.

      Thumbs up!

        This is an epic book. Read it entirely. If you can get everyone on your team to read it, comprehend it and adopt the practices, it's going to make your life so much better.

        Comments about oreilly Learning Agile:

        I'm currently helping teams at work become agile and this book is extremely helpful for that scenario. There's a lot of good advice on how to move beyond the modest productivity gains that newly agile teams see and overcoming all the typical obstacles.
