Pro Agile .NET Development with SCRUM

Pro Agile .NET Development with SCRUM guides you through a real-world ASP.NET project and shows how agile methodology is put into practice.

There is plenty of literature on the theory behind agile methodologies, but no book on the market takes the concepts of agile practices and applies these in a practical manner to an end-to-end ASP.NET project, especially the estimating, requirements and management aspects of a project. Pro Agile .NET Development with SCRUM takes you through the initial stages of a project–gathering requirements and setting up an environment–through to the development and deployment stages using an agile iterative approach: namely, Scrum.

In the book, you’ll focus on delivering an enterprise-level ASP.NET project. Each chapter is in iterations or sprints, putting into practice the features of agile–user stories, test-driven development (TDD), behavior-driven development (BDD), continuous integration, user acceptance testing, extreme programming, Scrum, design patterns and principles, inside-out development, lean developent, KanBan boards, and more. An appendix features code katas designed for the reader to get up-to-speed with some of the features of extreme programming, while also showcasing popular open-source frameworks to assist in automated testing and mocking.

What you’ll learn

  • Gain practical knowledge on employing the Scrum project methodology using a real-world ASP.NET project
  • See how extreme programming features in real world .NET projects
  • Learn best-practice tools for user interface and user acceptance testing, such as waitiN
  • Discover details on how to capture requirements and drive development using user stories
  • Learn how to estimate and plan agile projects and work with business stakeholders through a practical example
