      <http://www.agilemodeling.com/essays/proof.htm> Answering the "Where is
      the Proof That Agile Methods Work" Question

      authors: Ambler, Scott W.
      publication: Agile Modeling
      A common refrain of the detractors of agile methodologies is "where is the
      proof?" This article uses Geoffrey Moore's Crossing the Chasm concept as a
      base from which to argue why this question may not be appropriate. It also
      discusses existing sources of "proof".

      authors: Hieatt, Edward
      Mee, Robert
      publication: IEEE Software
      This article documents test-first design and the creation of testable code
      for web applications. The authors explain how testing has been critical to
      building their application at spped while maintaining a high level of
      quality.

      authors: Cauwenberghe, Pascal van
      publication: Methods & Tools
      Argues in favor of incremental and iteratrive development. The author
      reaches the conclusion that incremental software development, with short
      increments, is a very useful technique to reduce project risk and to deliver
      value faster to users.

      Extreme Unit Testing: Ordering Test Cases to Maximize Early Testing
      file type: Acrobat
      written: August 01, 2001

      authors: Parrish, Allen
      Jones, Joel
      Dixon, Brandon
      publication: XP Universe 2001
      This excellent paper looks at not just how to "write some tests, and write
      the method(s)" but also how to maximize the amount of testing with the
      minimum number of tests. Detailed case study of 'test-first' approach in an
      XP project. Well-documented approach on how to develop test cases before
      doing actual coding.
