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 The technical references in it will almost certainly be out of date before you read it, but that’s because the world is moving so fast; but the principles should remain the same.

About the Author

Nick Jenkins

Nick was born in Perth, Western Australia on the shores of the Swan River and spent his childhood frolicking with kangaroos and wombats in the bush.  At one time he wanted to be the world's greatest programmer but succumbed to the dark side and became a manager instead. He worked around the world for IT firms in Sydney, London, Boston & Prague before he scurried home.  Now he is a writer, photographer and management consultant. He lives in Perth with his wife Veronika and son Henry in a house that he designed for them.
