I love all the Head First books I have read so far. I have been a software tester for longer then i want to count but have dreams of doing more in terms of actual development work. The last two places i have been have done a agile/scrum approach to software development. Would this book help me understand the other aspects of agile to help me get in the flow once I get a chance to start development work?

Absolutely. We intentionality targeted several decent agile methods, and made no assumptions about any prior knowledge. We did this specifically because we understand that our readers come from many different backgrounds -- developers, testers, team leads, managers, product owners. (It helps that between the two of us, we've done all of those jobs professionally.)

So yes, I think you will definitely find our nook helpful!
This. Exactly this. This is what my therapist has been talking about. And now with a tiny ad:
Java file APIs (DOC, XLS, PDF, and many more)
