Description de l'ouvrage

13 mars 2014



Technical debt is best understood as the work remaining before a job can be considered complete. It is one of the worst bottlenecks when it comes to creating value with software and the ability to deal with it is often the difference between a great business and closing the shop. The Mikado Method is a process which systematically eliminates technical debt. It gets its name from a simple game known as "pick-up sticks." Starting with a jumbled pile of sticks, the goal is to remove the Mikado, or Emperor, stick without disturbing the others. Players carefully remove sticks one at a time, leaving the rest of the heap intact, slowly exposing the Mikado. The game is a great metaphor for eliminating technical debt—carefully extracting each intertwined dependency until successfully resolving the central issue.

The Mikado Method
describes a pragmatic and straightforward method to plan and perform non-trivial technical improvements on an existing software system. Step by step, readers will identify the scope and nature of technical debt, map the key dependencies, and determine the safest way to approach the "Mikado"—the goal. A natural byproduct of this process is the Mikado Graph, a minimalistic, relevant, just-in-time roadmap and information radiator that reflects deep understanding of how the system works.



Written by the creators of the Mikado Method

Step-by-step guide with hands on examples

Points out sources of technical debts



This book is for software developers with a basic understanding of Java or familiarity with a C-like language. No previous experience with the Mikado Method is necessary.




The Mikado Method offers a way to improve software systems without breaking them or going through long periods of having a half functioning system.

Biographie de l'auteur



Ola Ellnestam
is a coach and mentor for both business and technical teams. He loves to combine technology, people and business. He has developed complex computer systems within health care, defense, and on-line banking. He knows that software must be easy to use, extend, and deploy in order to be worth developing. More than anything else, he likes to share his discoveries and knowledge with others because he believes that this is how new knowledge and insight is created.


Daniel Brolund
is a software developer that always sees things to improve—to the joy and grief of his fellow workers. He has successfully worked with global web sites deployed on hundreds of servers, desktop applications for just a few users, and on-line gaming applications, just to mention a few.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Can Change the Way You Develop Software 25 avril 2014
Par Amazon Customer - Publié sur Amazon.com
The Mikado Method was one of the more thought provoking books I have read about software development; it has significantly influenced my day-to-day work and has really made me re-evaluate the way I approach software development. In one sentence, I would say that the Mikado Method is a form of planning one's work that is somewhat similar to natural planning as described by David Allen in Getting Things Done that acts as an overlaying methodology to the techniques listed by Michael Feathers in Working Effectively with Legacy Code and Martin Fowler et al in Refactoring. A useful effect of the Mikado Method is that it allows one to accurately demonstrate visibility and progress in midstream during a large scale change to stakeholders. Another nice property of the book is that it contains the best description of technical debt that I have yet seen in software development literature.

In sum, this book was concise, it has proven extremely useful, and it was definitely a worthwhile read.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Dan and Ola identified how I worked when I was effective. 17 août 2014
Par George Dinwiddie - Publié sur Amazon.com
I've practiced Test Driven Development (TDD) for years, and have, on numerous occasions, dealt with legacy code that has no unit tests. Over time, I learned to isolate parts of the code so that I could modify them using the techniques of TDD. This allowed me to work with more safety, and move faster with less worry about breaking things I didn't know existed.

When I first read this book, I realized that Dan and Ola had identified the root technique I used when getting legacy code under control. Only they had made it explicit and repeatable, where I was doing it in a "seat of the pants" "keep it all in my head" style. My style often worked, but it had many flaws. Sometimes the amount of stuff I had to keep in my head overflowed by memory buffer, and important details would get forgotten. Sometimes I failed to roll back a change that didn't work while dealing with a dependency, and would get to a point where I had too many things not working to effectively move forward. Too often I had to roll back a full day's work and start again, learning less from the experience than I could have.

Following the Mikado Method lets me deal with legacy code much more reliably. When helping people who are working on existing systems, I now recommend the combination of this book and Michael Feathers' Working Effectively with Legacy Code. The combination gives them the tools to make a great start in the right direction.
