As I sit here, cramming down my lunch down before a webcast, I am reading through some of the 50+ blog posts I’ve flagged in Newsgator for future reading. I just finished reading the first four parts of Darrell Norton’s Extreme Programming Explained 2nd edition series. Previously, I was blind to the fact XP was all about a bunch of developers sitting at one PC hammering out code, but I’m starting to realize it’s MUCH MORE than that. Darrell’s article Extreme Programming Overview was very enlightening.
Now my interest is peaked… I’m interested in picking up a book on the subject… just need to have time to read it! Should it move to the front of my “professional related books to read” list? Should it just be placed in the queue? Oh my, such decisions.
If you aren’t familiar with Darrell Norton, his blog is a great read for developers. I’ve learned quite a bit reading through his blog. I’ve also listed the first four parts of his series… again… GREAT reads (plus, he's a fellow MVP):
