      Announce - Book - Agile Development with Iconix Process
      (posted with group owners permission)

      By Doug Rosenberg, Mark Collins-Cope and Matt Stephens
      Publisher: Apress L.P.
      A pragmatic subset of agile UML techniques, illustrated by example.

      Available at:
      http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/tg/detail/-/1590594649/qid=1113318848/sr=8-1/ref=sr_8_xs_ap_i1_xgl14/002-4567655-4060021?v=glance&s=books&n=507846

      * Defines a core subset of agile practices and separates agile fact
      from fiction
      * Describes how to get from use cases to source code using a minimal
      object modeling process
      * Defines extensions to the core ICONIX Process, including: persona
      analysis/interaction design; and how to combine object modeling with
      Test Driven Development (TDD)

      This book demonstrates how to apply a minimal, use case driven object
      modeling process in an agile software project. It's full of practical
      advice on how to avoid common agile pitfalls. The book defines a core
      agile subset – so those of you who want to "get agile" need not spend
      years learning to do it. Instead, you can simply read this book and
      apply the core subset of techniques.

      The book follows a real-life .NET/C# project from inception and UML
      modeling, to working code—through several iterations. You can then go
      on-line to compare the finished product with the initial set of use cases.

      The book also introduces some extensions to the core ICONIX Process,
      including how to combine Test-Driven Development (TDD) with up-front
      design to get the best out of both approaches (with examples using
      Java and JUnit); and using persona analysis to drive the project's
      goals and reduce requirements churn.

      Who should read this book?
      * If you're a project manager and want to introduce some agile
      practices into your project, this book provides a useful starting point
      * If you're a programmer or architect, this book provides the
      technical details you need to get agile
      * If you're wondering how to combine the latest agile techniques with
      more traditional up-front requirements analysis + design to increase
      the likelihood of your project succeeding, then this book is for you!
