nagler extremeperl org,Have fun and build something cool. Pete Bonham, This book is about a marriage of two compatible yet unlikely partners. Extreme Programming XP is a software development methodology that. enables users business people programmers and computers to communi. cate effectively Perl is a dynamic programming language that lets an XP. team embrace the inevitable change caused by effective communication Perl. is the fixer and doer of the pair and XP is the organizer and facilitator To. gether they help you build robust software applications efficiently. Like any good marriage the partners of Extreme Perl support each other. For example XP asks business people to write acceptance tests and Perl lets. the business people use their own language and tools for the tests Much. of Perl only happens when the program runs and XP asks programmers. to define what is supposed to happen in unit tests before they write the. program In this book you ll see other examples where Perl reinforces XP. and vice versa This mutual support system is what makes Extreme Perl. applications robust, This book invites Perl programmers and their customers to take a fresh. look at software development Customers and business people in general. will learn how XP enables customer programmer communication for efficient. and flexible requirements gathering Programmers will see how XP s focus. on teamwork incremental testing and continuous design allows them to take. pride in their craft The numerous examples demonstrate Extreme Perl in. action including the development of a complete end to end application in. the last chapter,To Business People and Users, XP combines your project responsibilities into a single official role the. customer That s the extent of the formalism You don t need to learn use. case modeling object modeling or even fashion modeling You write your. requirements on a piece of paper with pen You even get to draw pictures. although the programmers would prefer you didn t use crayon. As the customer you have the responsibility to speak in one voice You. can discuss the requirements as much as you like but in the end you write. down a simple clear requirement in your own language called a story Any. disagreements need to be settled during the planning game where you and. the programmers hash out what needs to get done and how long it is going. XP lets you change your mind That means you have to hang around the. programmers something that may take getting used to Programmers are. terrible mind readers and your immediate feedback is necessary when they. get the requirements wrong or you realize a requirement isn t quite right. Best of all you get to see progress right away The programmers do the. simplest thing that could possibly work and believe it or not this actually. produces a working program in a matter of weeks There s nothing better. than seeing your requirements embodied in software to ensure you are getting. what you want and that you get what you are paying for Everybody is. motivated by a working product in use,To Programmers and Their Managers.
The programming role is quite broad in XP Programmers are responsible. for listening to the customer and reacting to the dynamic requirements of. the customer s world, With XP you get to be real No more fudged estimates or wild guesses. If the customer adds a complex requirement like internationalization right. in the middle of the project it s clearly not for free and you get to say how. long it will take, XP managers are coaches and trackers The programmers do all the. work and the coach gives sage advice while sipping martinis If all goes. well the tracker has a passive role too XP s 12 simple practices add up to. a lot of checks and balances Sometimes the coach and tracker must remind. the programmers how to use the practices effectively however. Code is the core artifact of an XP project You have to like to code to. c 2004 Robert Nagler x,nagler extremeperl org, do XP Fortunately Perl is fun and easy to code XP adds a modicum of. discipline to Perl coding practices that enables you to code faster and better. XP is reflective The code gets better because you refactor it frequently. This means you get to fix the bad code in the project that usually everybody. is afraid to touch With XP you might not be so afraid You and your pair. programming partner have lots of tests to ensure you don t break anything. while refactoring, The goal of refactoring is to represent concepts once and only once Perl. lets us do this more easily than other languages Extreme Perl code can. be quite compact without obfuscation rather the opposite The code often. evolves into what I call a subject matter oriented program SMOP. Subject matter oriented programming distills the essence of the prob. lem into a little language The SMOPs in this book are plain old Perl. There s no need to invent new syntax Sometimes you may need to think. differently to understand a SMOP unless you already are familiar with. declarative programming which is quite different than traditional imper. ative programming what most programmers learn in school. You need to know Perl fairly well to read many of the examples I. explain the examples without going into much detail about the Perl syntax. and semantics You may need to keep your favorite Perl reference book. within reach for example to undertand how map works. One last thing the some of test examples use the bivio OLTP Platform. bOP an open source application framework developed by my company. http www bivio biz If you write a lot of tests you need tools to help you. write them quickly and clearly bOP employs SMOP to simplify unit and. acceptance tests I m not trying to sell bOP to you it s free anyway but to. demonstrate SMOP in testing This book explains just enough of bOP to. read the examples,How to Read This Book, This book explains Extreme Perl to both programmers and business people.
I also attempt to convey the Extreme Perl experience through examples and. personal anecdotes The book covers Extreme Programming XP in detail. so no prior experience is necessary, The first part of this book is about the non programming aspects of Ex. treme Perl the why The Problem the what Extreme Programming and. Perl and the how Release Planning Iteration Planning Acceptance Test. ing Tracking and Pair Programming There is some code in Acceptance. c 2004 Robert Nagler xi,nagler extremeperl org, Testing but everybody should be able to read it The last chapter It s. a SMOP is an end to end Extreme Perl example that combines XP Perl. and SMOP Non programmers may want to scan this chapter and read the. conclusions at the end, The second part of this book contains numerous programming examples. from the real world The following chapters show you what it is like to. do Extreme Perl Coding Style Logistics Test Driven Design Continuous. Design Unit Testing Refactoring and It s a SMOP, If you are a top down thinker I recommend you read this book front to. back Bottom up thinkers may want to start at the last chapter and work. As noted in the previous section the Perl code in this book is advanced. The programming examples are not complex that is they are short and. contain only a few concepts However the code may appear complicated to. some programmers If you are familiar with functional programming and. object oriented Perl the examples should be clear If not you may want. to peek at the last chapter which describes functional programming The. references throughout the book may be helpful too The object oriented. aspects are not all that important so you should be able to understand the. examples without object oriented experience, Typographical notes I note acronyms that are used in the XP and Perl.
communities throughout this book but I use their expansions so you don t. have to memorize them,Acknowledgments, This book was a collaborative project Many people contribu.
