About the Book
In this book I show the agile patterns that I have observed via the narrative of Mike, a programmer who has struggled to deliver working software. After a major issue with a new deployment—that cost his company lots of money—leadership has decided to rehire an employee named Tim. Tim has been tasked with delivering new features while simultaneously installing agile. Along the way, both Mike and Tim are met with skeptics, difficult conversations, challenging software problems, and their own flaws, as they attempt to live out the values that are core to Extreme Programming.
Here is a list of the chapters only those marked draft have been started
A stumble (draft): The new subscription feature breaks in production
Warming up (draft 2): Tim is rehired, and shares the XP values
Joining a team (draft): Tim joins without changing their course
Reflecting (draft): The team assesses what isn't working by refocusing their retrospective on improvement
The Demo: stakeholders are given visibility into progress via a demo
The Starting line: The team is asked to rebuild the subscription feature
Planning the next lap: slicing stories, estimation, and setting a milestone
First steps: team starts on their project but makes little progress
Getting winded: The team rushes but discovers there are lots of defects
Setting a pace (draft): the team adds tests as a safety net
Finishing a lap: the team hits their milestone early
Resetting: planning for the next milestone
Losing the path (draft): after John leaves the team the team begins to pair
The finish line never arrives: the team ships an MVP of the subscription feature and learns that the race keeps going
