This week's book giveaway is in the Reactive Progamming forum. We're giving away four copies of Reactive Streams in Java: Concurrency with RxJava, Reactor, and Akka Streams and have Adam Davis on-line! See this thread for details.
the whole book very much covers this topic. The reason for writing the book is that we have seen over the years that it is really hard for organizations to transition from a waterfall mentality to a more modern development model where they do iterative development, continuous integration, have self-organized teams, etc. So, the book describes 20 practices that are relevant for teams moving to a more modern development approach, and for each practice, we describe incremental steps you can take towards improving your process in that area.
Examples of practices in the book that are relevant include: Practice 2 - Implement your project in iterations Practice 3 - Embrace and manage change Practice 5 - Test your own code Practice 7 - Everyone owns the product! Practice 12 - Build high-performance teams
A lot of the issues transitioning to agile is related to perspectives people have of their role, and practice 7 and 12 are examples of practices addressing that issue. Now, there are many more practices in the book that are relevant, but those listed above hopefully gives you a feel for some of the practices that we cover...
Another book that you might find valuable is "Practices of an Agile Developer".
The soul is dyed the color of its thoughts. Think only on those things that are in line with your principles and can bear the light of day. The content of your character is your choice. Day by day, what you do is who you become. Your integrity is your destiny - it is the light that guides your way. - Heraclitus
