Changing Software Development: Learning to be Agile

Changing Software Development

Changing Software Development Learning to be Agile is a study in changing the software development process. At a practical level it sets out to help the reader change the way software is created.Changing Software Development considers learning to be the vital tool in the change process. In doing so it blends the fields of management and software development.

The book argues that software development as primarily a learning activity and software developers are at the cutting edge of the twenty-first century knowledge economy.

Fun fact: the book subtitle was intended to be “learning to be agile”, this implies a oneness between learning and agile. This sub-title is given on the inner pages but somehow, on the cover, “be” became “become.”
