Well, last spring I announced that I was going to be publishing a collection of the best Agile Advice articles in a book. I managed to get an ISBN number, got a great cover page design, and so it is almost done. I’m still trying to figure out how to build an index… any suggestions would be welcome!!! But… I’m hoping to get it published on iBooks and Amazon in the next month or two. Let me know if you have any feedback on “must-have” Agile Advice articles – there’s still time to add / edit the contents.
There are six major sections to the book:
- Basics and Foundations
- Applications and Variations
- Agile and Other Systems
- For Managers and Executives
- Bonus Chapters
- Agile Methods Quick Reference and Selection Guide
The book will also have a small collection of 3 in-depth articles that have never been published here on Agile Advice (and never will be). The three special articles are:
- Agile Mining at a Large Canadian Oil Sands Company
- Crossing the Knowing-Doing Gap
- Becoming a Professional Software Developer
Again, any feedback on tools or techniques for creating a quick index section on a book would be great. I’m using LibreOffice for my word processor on a Mac. I’m cool with command-line tools if there’s something good!
