This week's book giveaway is in the OCPJP forum. We're giving away four copies of OCA/OCP Java SE 7 Programmer I & II Study Guide and have Kathy Sierra & Bert Bates on-line! See this thread for details.
Hi everyone, i've just read "Applying UML and Patterns" by Craig Larman and i was wondering a book that cover all the agile and iterative development topics since the book is an introduction (the author said so). On my searches i found "Agile Software Development, Principles, Patterns, and Practices". Is it a good book? Is there any better solution? p.s.: I'm a developer, not manager.
Robert Martin's book is great - a must-read for a developer, in my opinion. On the other hand, it fully concentrates on the source code - how to manage dependencies in the design and such things. There are other books for the other aspects of software development.
The soul is dyed the color of its thoughts. Think only on those things that are in line with your principles and can bear the light of day. The content of your character is your choice. Day by day, what you do is who you become. Your integrity is your destiny - it is the light that guides your way. - Heraclitus

I�m looking for more agile process, the book only covers the initial part of it (conception and elaboration phases in UP). I don�t want a specific methodology such xp or rup.
Have a look over the books that were suggested in the Agile Books topic.

So you are looking for something more like a cookbook on how to to continue than a philosophical book? Are you a software developer? A manager? Are you working in a team?
