This full day video workshop from Safari Books Online cover much of the topics that make evolutionary agile design possible, including Test-Driven Design, automation, and testing strategies.
The workshop presented by Neal Ford, who is a frequent writer and speaker. In 2009-10 he wrote a series of fifteen articles for IBM developerWorks which dug deeper into the question of evolutionary architecture and design. His topics included Test Driven Development, leveraging reusable code, refactoring towards design and Domain-Specific Languages.
Now he’s followed on from this and recorded a video workshop on Agile Engineering Practices for O’Reilly that’s available on safari books online.
I think this is excellent resource for teams who want to start agile practices.
