Looking ahead:

Monday, December 10: XP Processes

Read [EXE], Ch. 11-14 (pp. 85-110).

Optionally, also read Ch. 15-16 (p. 111-121), which are aimed at executives more than programmers.

Email me your answers to the following questions by 10 a.m.  Put "CSC223-DEC-10" in the email subject line.

  1. You read about constraints, planning, testing, and design. Did anything you read resonate with an experience you've had? If so, how?
  2. What was the most important thing you learned?
  3. Pose one or two questions to discuss in class.

Wednesday, December 12: XP Philosophy; Wrapup

Read [EXE], Ch. 17-25 (p. 125-160; there are lots of blank pages).

Email me your answers to the following questions by 10 a.m.  Put "CSC223-DEC-12" in the email subject line.

  1. What was the most interesting or surprising thing you learned?
  2. Pose one or two questions to discuss in class.
We will spend part of this class discussing the reading.  The remainder of the time will be spent on course evaluations.  I truly value your feedback---please come!

Topics you should aim to cover:

Some ground rules:
