Now, in a completely revised introduction to eXtreme Programming, Kent Beck describes what has changed in the last five years. He provides a thorough and entertaining re-examination of eXtreme Programming that explains what's good, what still needs work, and where the methodology is heading. eXtreme Programming Explained is discounted to an exclusive price only for Reg readers: just £17.49.
