Extreme programming eXplained : embrace change by Kent Beck ( Book )
47 editions published between 1999 and 2012 in English and Undetermined and held by 943 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Extreme Programming (XP) was conceived and developed to address the specific needs of software development conducted by small teams in the face of vague and changing requirements. This new lightweight methodology challenges many conventional tenets, including the long-held assumption that the cost of changing a piece of software necessarily rises dramatically over the course of time. XP recognizes that projects have to work to achieve this reduction in cost and exploit the savings once they have been earned." "You may love XP or you may hate it, but Extreme Programming Explained will force you to take a fresh look at how you develop software."--BOOK JACKET

Planning extreme programming by Kent Beck ( Book )
25 editions published between 2000 and 2004 in 4 languages and held by 413 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"You will learn how planning is essential to controlling workload, reducing programmer stress, increasing productivity, and keeping projects on track.

Implementation patterns by Kent Beck ( Book )
19 editions published between 2007 and 2008 in English and Spanish and held by 252 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Great code doesn t just happen. It is the outcome of hundreds of small but critical decisions programmers make every single day. Now, software innovator Kent Beck focuses on these critical decisions, unearthing "implementation patterns" for writing programs that are simpler, clearer, better organized, and more cost effective." "Beck collects 77 patterns for handling everyday programming tasks and writing more readable code. This new collection of patterns addresses many aspects of development, including class, state, behavior, method, collections, frameworks, and more. He uses diagrams, stories, examples, and essays to engage the reader as he illuminates the patterns. You'll find solutions for handling everything from naming variables to checking exceptions." "Implementation Patterns will help programmers at all experience levels, especially those who have benefited from software patterns or agile methods. It will also be a resource for development teams seeking to work together more efficiently and build more maintainable software."--BOOK JACKET

JUnit pocket guide by Kent Beck ( )
8 editions published between 2004 and 2005 in English and German and held by 138 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
JUnit, created by Kent Beck and Erich Gamma, is an open source framework for test-driven development in any Java-based code. JUnit automates unit testing and reduces the effort required to frequently test code while developing it. While there are lots of bits of documentation all over the place, there isn't a go-to-manual that serves as a quick reference for JUnit. This Pocket Guide meets the need, bringing together all the bits of hard to remember information, syntax, and rules for working with JUnit, as well as delivering the insight and sage advice that can only come from a technology's c
