Présentation de l'éditeur

Printed in full color.

Faced with a software project of epic proportions? Tired of over-committing and under-delivering? Enter the dojo of the agile samurai, where agile expert Jonathan Rasmusson shows you how to kick-start, execute, and deliver your agile projects. Combining cutting-edge tools with classic agile practices, The Agile Samurai gives you everything you need to deliver something of value every week and make rolling your software into production a non-event.

Get ready to kick some software project butt. By learning the ways of the agile samurai you will discover:

how to create plans and schedules your customer and your team can believe in
what characteristics make a good agile team and how to form your own
how to gather requirements in a fraction of the time using agile user stories
what to do when you discover your schedule is wrong, and how to look like a pro correcting it
* how to execute fiercely by leveraging the power of agile software engineering practices
By the end of this book you will know everything you need to set up, execute, and successfully deliver agile projects, and have fun along the way. If you're a project lead, this book gives you the tools to set up and lead your agile project from start to finish. If you are an analyst, programmer, tester, usability designer, or project manager, this book gives you the insight and foundation necessary to become a valuable agile team member.

The Agile Samurai slices away the fluff and theory that make other books less-than-agile. It's packed with best practices, war stories, plenty of humor and hands-on tutorial exercises that will get you doing the right things, the right way.

This book will make a difference.

I found this book quite useful to learn the core of Agile software development and how to apply it. The style is direct and easy to read. The book is full of tips from the author, directly coming from practice. The author insist on simplicity and I found it quite valuable. The author covers the whole life of a project, from inception to execution. I found the inception part quite interesting, as this part is usually not very well covered. The illustrations help to visualise the important points. The book has a lot of examples, with some simple use cases to illustrate the "theoretical" parts.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Bien fichu mais la fin laisse à désirer 13 mai 2012
Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
Un bon livre qui sait faire la part des choses sur les différentes méthodologies agiles.
Il est plutôt destiné aux personnes voulant découvrir l'agilité et pas vraiment aux initiés pour lesquels ce livre fera office de rappel.

Dommage que le dernier tiers du livre donne l'impression d'être bâclé.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Starter course for agile managers 26 juillet 2011
Par Thomas Knierim - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
Over the last ten years, I've been working with teams with different degrees of commitment to the agile process, ranging from non-existing to quite strong. I was looking for a text that summarises agile methodology to help me formalise and articulate my own experiences, and of course to enhance my knowledge of some of the finer points of agile practices. I have to admit that this book did not meet my expectations. The first eighty pages up to chapter six are mostly about project inception and read like a prolonged introduction. From chapter six onwards, the author finally comes to the point and discusses the core concepts of agile processes, so the book does get better with increasing page numbers. Unfortunately, Scrum isn't discussed at all, instead Kanban is introduced in chapter eight. The discussion of typical technical processes, such as refactoring, TDD, and continuous integration is compacted into several brief chapters at the end of the book.

The writing style is very informal; the author uses a conversational tone throughout the book. Almost every page contains illustrations, which makes it an easy and quick read. The style of the book is comparable to the Head First books. It left me with the the impression that I sat in an all-day meeting where someone said a lot of intelligent things to which everyone else agreed. Unfortunately, not many of these things seemed radically new or thought-provoking, so I fear I won't remember many of them next month. Of course, this may be entirely my own fault. I prefer a more formal, concise, old-school language. I also prefer dense and meaty text books with lots of diagrams, numbers and formulas. In return, I can dispense with stick figures, pictograms, and even with Master Sensei (a guru character used in the book). I feel that a lot of the deeper and more complex issues of agile project management have simply been left out.

To be fair, it must be mentioned that I probably do not fall into the target group for which this book was written. It is more appropriate as an introductory text for people who are new to agile project management, or even new to the entire business of project management. Think "trial lesson" and "starter course".

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Humor and How to do Agile 2 décembre 2010
Par Johanna Rothman - Publié sur Amazon.com
I knew I was going to like The Agile Samurai from the first page:

"Agile is a way of developing software that reminds us that although computers run the code, it's people who create and maintain it."

Jonathan Rasmussen, the Other JR, has written a great, short, to-the-point book about how to move a project to agile. From the beginning "Deliver something of value every week" to the Agile Principles sprinkled throughout the book, such as "The best architectures, requirements, and designs emerge from self-organizing teams" to the conversations between the student and the Sensei, you can learn how to move your project from where it is to agile.

Some pieces I particularly like are:

1. All of Chapter 4, Seeing the Big Picture, where Jonathan suggests we need an elevator pitch for our project. I'm stealing this idea right away.
2. Chapter 8: Agile Planning, Dealing with Reality. After a humorous side trip with Murphy and his Law, Jonathan introduces us to burndown, burnup, and team velocity charts.
3. Chapter 15: Continuous Integration: Making it Production-Ready. What if you only had one hour to deploy your product. Could you? Jonathan walks you through what you need to do to make the code production ready.

Jonathan has great advice about how to know how agile you are:

"And don't forget. It's not about "being" agile. It's about building great products and delivering world class service to your customers."

This is a great book. If you are thinking of starting an agile journey, do yourself a favor and get this book. You will not be sorry.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Agile in the wild 20 octobre 2010
Par Sean Feldman - Publié sur Amazon.com
What this book isn't: boring theory about agile methodology and history of "how did it all start". This book is neither source of THE secret of agile software development.

What this book is: a great and valuable source of reality connected simple facts that would allow you to re-evaluate how you build your software. Inception Deck is a great tool to kick off a project. Project planning and execution from agile point of view and with developers in mind are chapters that logically explain how to address everyday issues on traditional projects. This book is about achieving targets by going with simplicity.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Agile From The Trenches 7 décembre 2010
Par Jean-Paul S. Boodhoo - Publié sur Amazon.com
When it comes to books on programming, some of my favourite are ones that leave you with practical advice and guidance that is drawn directly from the trenches of applying and refining the concepts. The pragmatic bookshelf is indicative of this style of writing, and I often do not hesitate to recommend lots of their books to people that I work with.

The bookshelf now has claim to another great book that is written by someone that I once had the honour of working with. The Agile Samurai is a great book that comes straight from the trenches of working, refinining, and applying agile practices. Jonathan Rasmusson ("JR"), is a master programmer, iteration manager, and general jack of all software trades. I would be able to recommend the book alone just based on the content that is within the pages, but I can recommend it even stronger knowing that JR has condensed into its pages the dissemination of practices, war wounds, and nuggets that could only have been gleaned by someone who has proven each of the techniques on projects of all sizes.

I gave the following recommendation in the opening sections of the book:

This book was written with the insight and clarity that can only come from a person who has proved these techniques in the trenches. I have read many books on agile software development; this is by far the most engaging, easy to read, and just plain fun of them all. Get ready to sharpen that sword!

For fun, you may also want to check out the awesome Bruce Lee promotional video, that JR put together for the book (it is hilarious).

Enjoy sharpening the sword!!

3.0 étoiles sur 5 For Managers and Newbies 8 octobre 2012
Par John F. Wright - Publié sur Amazon.com
This is a very easy to read introduction to the concepts of "Agile". A veteran software developer is unlikely to gain anything from reading this book.

Several good concepts are discussed in this book and if you don't have experience in software development then they are very important to realize:
* Customer involvement is very important
* Change will happen so forget spending months planning
* Deliver working functionality quickly and regularly
* Put effort into creating and maintaining quality software and your efforts will be repaid as time goes on.

One oversight which concerns me is that the book gives a very negative view of documentation. I think what he means is excessive effort spent writing requirements documents. Well documented code and good explanatory documentation are still of paramount importance and shouldn't be skimped on by a frantic, fast paced agile approach.

The author repeatedly hammers the point that the only item you can be flexible on is scope. Budgets and time frames usually don't have much flexibility. Quality is always important. So the only thing left is scope. If the project goes well you can add scope, if problems are encountered then you have to cut out scope and drop some desired features.
