Late last year I released two books as Kindle and Paperback editions; they were A Gentle Introduction to Agile Software Development and A Gentle Introduction to Lean Software Development. Since releasing those two books, I have had a few people ask if I am going to release those two books as a single volume as they would prefer it as a single book, so I have done exactly that. A Gentle Introduction to Agile and Lean Software Development is now available globally as a Kindle eBook and as a paperback.
If you have purchased either of the original books, then there is not much point in you getting this edition unless you want them as a single volume, but if you are interested in getting a fast and thorough introduction to Agile and Lean software development techniques, then this book is ideal for you.
Here is the description from the back of the book.
Discover what is involved with Agile and Lean Software Development, Scrum, Extreme Programming, Lean and Kanban
Learning new software development processes can be difficult, but switching to Agile and Lean doesn’t need to be complicated. Explore the theories behind Agile and Lean Software Development, and learn how to make it work for you.
In a Gentle Introduction to Agile and Lean Software Development, author Stephen Haunts will guide you to a fuller understanding of Agile, Scrum, Extreme Programming, Lean, and Kanban. You will learn about the advantages and disadvantages, and how to get the most out of it.
This book combines the books A Gentle Introduction to Agile Software Development and A Gentle Introduction to Lean Software Development into one bumper volume.
