About the Book
This Primer is for everyone who is interested in quality in software development, and that should be everyone; because delivering poor quality software at speed is a certified recipe for failure.
I’ve tried to distil all I’ve learned from Lean and Devops, and Agile, into this version. The technical references in it will almost certainly be out of date before you read it, but that’s because the world is moving so fast; but the principles should remain the same.
