TITLE: Readings from the Agile Development Course AUTHOR: Eugene Wallingford DATE: June 12, 2010 11:09 AM DESC: ----- BODY: Last time I mentioned that students in my agile software development course found several of the reading assignments to be valuable. For what it's worth, here is at least a relatively complete list of the readings I assigned in the course of four weeks, in no particular order. When I still thought we might use a distributed version control system, I asked students to read Hg Init and then a few items on git, including Git for the Lazy, the official git tutorial man page, and Everyday Git. Then, when I decided to show discretion in at least one part of the project and use centralized version control, I asked the class to read several items on Subversion I'm under no illusion that every student read every page of every reading. This is an ambitious list for agile beginners to tackle in four weeks while also working on a big project. Still, it's clear from discussion that many students read a lot of this material, had questions, and even had comments for me. As always, I'd love to hear from you any comments you have about this list, or any additions you can suggest for future offerings. -----
