Both the fact that Jack wrote a foreword and an afterword;
and the fact that your book is coming out. I am looking forward
to own a copy of it -- although I treasure the early draft that
I have of the manuscript.
One of the most mysterious subjects of agility is the
exact knowledge that sometimes is attributed to people
that practice agile methods.
How do they do it?
Why don't they rely so much on models?
What do they rely on instead?
I think your book will make a great deal of this knowledge
available to others through the understanding of
"The Principles, Patterns, and Practices of
Agile Software Development"
Thanks for writing it. In my opinion, it will shortly
become a "classic". Btw, this is not just a complementary
nice sentence to make. I truly believe this book shares
knowledge that is hardly found elsewhere, like the
thorough discussion of the Design Principles that are
so key to develop and manage large architectures.
Congrats once again!!!
