Extreme Programming is a set of practices that mitigate risk and
improve quality in software projects while introducing as little
overhead as possible. The core design principle of Extreme
Programming is "Do the simplest thing that could possibly work."
I'll introduce the 12 core practices of Extreme Programming, including
Pair Programming, Test First, and the Planning Game. I'll describe
how we've used these practices on some of our internal projects.
I'll discuss when to use Extreme Programming, and when you need
something more. I'll tell you how you can introduce these practices
into your development environment.
