4.0 out of 5 stars Good introduction to agile coding, 26 April 2009
This review is from: Agile Principles, Patterns, and Practices in C# (Robert C. Martin) (Hardcover)
I bought this book in the expectation that it would give a solid introduction to various agile methods - both coding principles as well as agile processes. It turned out to be focused primarily on coding principles ... of course, when you think about it ... it does after all focus on C# principles, patterns and practicies. You will see lots of coding examples (too many in my opinion) and very little about the agile processes around the actual coding. So it sure does deliver what it promisses: you will see how to actually implement coding patterns in C#.

If this is your first book on good object oriented patterns and practices then it's a good buy. If you already know your patterns, well, then it's a good brush up worth reading anyway.

If your are looking for a book on agile process like XP and Scrum then this is the wrong book.

As a senior C# programmer on my job I will certainly recomend new colleges to read this book.
