Wild West to Agile (Addison-Wesley)
Friday, 02 June 2023

In this book, subtitled "Adventures in Software Development", Jim Highsmith, co-author of the original Agile Manifesto and author of many books, tackles the evolution and revolution of software development, embellishes them with personal experiences, from the Apollo moon mission to modern digital transformations, and introduces the adventurous pioneers--from structured era developer Ken Orr to Agile methodologist Kent Beck--who strived to make the world a better place, by building better software.

<ASIN:0137961006 >

Jim's six-decade career has encompassed the Wild West (1966-1979), to Structured Methods and Monumental Methodologies (1980s), to the Roots of Agile (1990s), to the present Agile Era (2001-present). In each era, he explores the evolution of software development methods, methodologies, and mindsets.
