驚喜地發現 Andy 跟 Dave 出新書了,不需要多考慮,掏錢買就對了。

看《Pragmatic Version Control using CVS》的目錄感覺內容有點單薄,當成入門書籍還說的過去。我個人比較期待《Pragmatic Unit Testing》及《Pragmatic Project Automation 》。

Software development is difficult enough; if you try to build on a shaky foundation it can make development almost impossible; (which might account for the fact that about 50% of software projects fail). The Starter Kit fixes that. It's a set of three books covering basic practices that are applicable in all software development situations. It doesn't matter if you're using Extreme Programming or RUP, developing web services or code embedded in a cell phone. The practices of version control, unit testing, and project automation are crucial to your success!
