Extreme programming eXplained : embrace change by Kent Beck( Book )

84 editions published between 1999 and 2015 in 9 languages and held by 1,060 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."--Jacket
Refactoring : improving the design of existing code by Martin Fowler( Book )

42 editions published between 1999 and 2013 in English and held by 775 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Mit der Verbreitung von objektorientierter Softwareentwicklung wurden Entwickler mit einem neuen Problem konfrontiert: Entwickler mit wenig Erfahrung im Design von Software schrieben wenig effiziente, schwer wart- und erweiterbare Anwendungen. In zunehmendem Maße entdeckten Softwaresystemprofis, wie schwer es ist, mit diesen geerbten, "nicht optimalen" Anwendungen zu arbeiten. Jahrelang hatten sehr erfahrene, objektorientierte Programmierer eine wachsende Sammlung von Techniken erprobt, um die strukturelle Integrität und Performance solcher Softwareprogramme zu verbessern. Diese so genannten Refactorings (Refaktorisierungen) blieben bisher Experten vorbehalten, da niemand den Versuch unternommen hatte, dieses Wissen in eine Form zu bringen, die alle Entwickler verwenden können. Jetzt ändert sich diese Situation: Martin Fowler entmystifiziert die Techniken der Meister und zeigt, wie Programmierer durch den Einsatz von Refaktorisierungen signifikante Verbesserungen verwirklichen können. Mit dem richtigen Training kann ein fähiger Systementwickler einen schlechten Entwurf in robusten Code mit gutem Design umarbeiten. Der Leser lernt, wo Gelegenheiten zum Refaktorisieren in der Regel zu finden sind und wie er vorgehen muss, um einen schlechten Entwurf in einen guten umzuarbeiten. Jeder Refaktorisierungsschritt ist einfach - scheinbar zu einfach, um sich zu lohnen. Zum Refaktorisieren kann es gehören, ein Feld von einer Klasse in eine andere zu verschieben, Code aus einer Methode herauszuziehen und daraus eine eigene Methode zu machen oder Code entlang einer Hierarchie zu verschieben. Während die einzelnen Schritte elementar erscheinen mögen, kann der kumulative Effekt dieser kleinen Änderungen einen Entwurf dramatisch verbessern. Refaktorisieren ist ein bewährtes Mittel gegen Softwarezerfall. Über die Diskussion der verschiedenen Refaktorisierungstechniken hinaus bietet das Buch einen Katalog von mehr als siebzig bewährten Refaktorisierungen mit
Test-driven development : by example by Kent Beck( Book )

39 editions published between 2000 and 2014 in 5 languages and held by 421 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book follows two TDD projects from start to finish, illustrating techniques programmers can use to easily and dramatically increase the quality of their work. The examples are followed by references to the featured TDD patterns and refactorings. With its emphasis on agile methods and fast development strategies, Test-Driven Development is sure to inspire readers to embrace these under-utilized but powerful techniques."--Jacket
Planning extreme programming by Kent Beck( Book )

24 editions published between 2000 and 2004 in 4 languages and held by 381 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"You will learn how planning is essential to controlling workload, reducing programmer stress, increasing productivity, and keeping projects on track. Planning Extreme Programming also focuses on the importance of estimating the cost and time for each user story (requirement), determining its priority, and planning software releases accordingly."--Jacket
Implementation patterns by Kent Beck( Book )

29 editions published between 2007 and 2013 in 5 languages and held by 271 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."--Jacket

Kent Beck's guide to better Smalltalk by Kent Beck( Book )

11 editions published between 1997 and 1999 in English and held by 103 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Kent Beck's Guide to Better Smalltalk, is a collection of his best work from Object Magazine, The Smalltalk Report, Dr. Dobbs Journal, and more. Each article has a new introduction that takes a retrospective view of the writing. Topics include: idioms and environments, methods and metamodels, architecture and pattern languages, objects, classes, inheritance, and all things Smalltalk! While demonstrating the elegance of Smalltalk and how some of its most powerful features can be exploited profitably, this collection also illuminates breakthrough concepts in object-oriented development. This book is for Smalltalk programmers and anyone working in object-oriented software development
JUnit pocket guide by Kent Beck( Book )

15 editions published between 2004 and 2005 in 3 languages and held by 83 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 creator. Any programmer who has written, or is writing, Java Code will find this book valuable. Specifically it will appeal to programmers and developers of any level that use JUnit to do their unit testing in test-driven development under agile methodologies such as Extreme Programming (XP) [another Beck creation]
