Standards for Java v17.01d
Whenever I start working with a new language one of the first
things that I try to do is determine what coding standards and
guidelines for that language exist. When I first started working
with Java in the Autumn of 1995 I couldn't find any. When I went
looking again a year later I found some, listed later in this web
page, but they weren't sufficient for my needs. The information
that I found was fairly good, for the most part, but some of it
was contradictory and none of it was complete. Furthermore, some
of the papers were not based on sound software engineering
principles, but were instead oriented towards banging out code
very quickly. Because I believe in
writing code that is easy to understand, to maintain, and to
enhance I decided that I needed to put together a
standards and guidelines document for Java coding. I also decided
to share it with you, so here it is in its entirety for you to
This book, Disciplined Agile Delivery: A Practitioner's Guide to Agile Software Delivery in the Enterprise describes the Disciplined Agile Delivery (DAD) process decision framework.
The DAD framework is a people-first, learning-oriented hybrid agile approach to IT solution delivery. It has a risk-value delivery lifecycle, is goal-driven, is enterprise aware, and provides the foundation for scaling agile.
This book is particularly important for anyone who wants to understand how agile works from end-to-end within an enterprise setting.
Data professionals will find it interesting because it shows how agile modeling and agile database techniques fit into the overall solution delivery process.
Enterprise professionals will find it interesting beause it explicitly promotes the idea that disciplined agile teams should be enterprise aware and therefore work closely with enterprise teams.
Existing agile developers will find it interesting because it shows how to extend Scrum-based and Kanban-based strategies to provide a coherent, end-to-end streamlined delivery process.
