Abstract:

"After many decades - and even more methodologies - software projects are still failing. Why? Managers see software development as a production line. Companies don't know how to manage software projects and hire good developers. Many developers still behave like factory workers, providing terrible service to their employers and clients. Agile was a big step forward, but not enough. What's missing? The right mindset - for both developers and their employers. As developers worldwide are recognizing, the right mindset is craftsmanship ... Mancuso explains what craftsmanship means to the developer and his or her organization, and shows how to live it every day in your real-world development environment. Mancuso shows how software craftsmanship fits with and helps you improve upon best-practice technical disciplines such as agile and lean, taking all your development projects to the next level. You'll learn how to change the disastrous perception that software developers are the same as factory workers, and that software projects can be run like factories. By placing greater professionalism, technical excellence, and customer satisfaction at the heart of what you do, you won't just deliver more value to everyone involved: you'll be happier and more fulfilled doing it"--Publisher's description.
