eXtreme .NET: Introducing eXtreme Programming Techniques to .NET Developers Paperback – 10 December 2004
Enhance your purchase
In a major shift from the past, Microsoft has been encouraging developers who
use Visual Studio to pay attention to software architecture and software
development methodologies. One methodology which is well-suited to the way
that many Microsoft development teams work is eXtreme Programming. Many
developers using VB and C# admire its flexibility, its emphasis on testing, and
the idea of developing in small teams. While they have been trying to pick up
the XP techniques from the general books on XP and Agile, there is a dearth of
information to help them apply the Agile techniques in a Microsoft setting.
is the first book to provide a complete and practical guide to
using eXtreme Programming with .NET. The author is well regarded in both
the XP and .NET communities. He uses extensive case studies and real world
examples to illustrate best practices throughout the book, and provides many
hands-on exercises so that readers make sure they have learned the concepts.
The book concludes with a chapter on step-by-step development that will put
together all the practices taught in the book to develop a piece of software.
From the Back Cover
"At last, somebody has introduced eXtreme Programming techniques to the world of .NET! Through enjoyable writing and tons of hands-on exercises, Dr. Neil explains how to use the best techniques from eXtreme Programming to vastly improve developer productivity within the .NET Framework."
―George Bullock, Program Manager, Microsoft Corporation
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. Coverage includes
Where to start if you've never used XP or other Agile methods before
Pair programming: Turning .NET programming into a collaborative game
Test-Driven development: Making sure your .NET code works as intended while it's easiest to fix
Refactoring: Organizing your .NET code to improve flexibility and enable changes more readily
Continuous integration and automated build/test: Enhancing quality in distributed, component-based systems
Spiking: Using rapid experimentation to validate your expectations about behavior in the .NET Framework
The importance of customer input to successful projects
How to test .NET user interfaces and third-party libraries
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.
Dr. Neil Roodyn has been actively involved with eXtreme Programming since 1999, and founded Sydney's eXtreme Programming Activity Club (SyXPAC). He has helped drive the adoption of the .NET Framework in Australia through his work as a project leader, consultant, instructor, and mentor. His clients have ranged from Microsoft to Rogue Wave and he has helped launch several software startups. Dr. Neil holds a Ph.D. from University College London where he specialized in software architectures for real-time systems.
