Description

Summary

Agile ALM is a guide for Java developers who want to integrate flexible agile practices and lightweight tooling along all phases of the software development process. The book introduces a new vision for managing change in requirements and process more efficiently and flexibly. It synthesizes technical and functional elements to provide a comprehensive approach to software development.
About the Technology
Agile Application Lifecycle Management (Agile ALM) combines flexible processes with lightweight tools in a comprehensive and practical approach to building, testing, integrating, and deploying software. Taking an agile approach to ALM improves product quality, reduces time to market, and makes for happier developers.
About the Book
Agile ALM is a guide for Java developers, testers, and release engineers. By following dozens of experience-driven examples, you'll learn to see the whole application lifecycle as a set of defined tasks, and then master the tools and practices you need to accomplish those tasks effectively. The book introduces state-of-the-art, lightweight tools that can radically improve the speed and fluidity of development and shows you how to integrate them into your processes.

The tools and examples are Java-based, but the Agile ALM principles apply to all development platforms.

Purchase of the print book comes with an offer of a free PDF, ePub, and Kindle eBook from Manning. Also available is all code from the book.
