Agile Software Development with Scrum

This book is all you need if you want to learn Scrum

My rating: 4/5

Scrum is an incredibly simple, yet extremely effective software development model. We’ve been applying it successfully at work for a good part of 2008 and I recommend it for teams that want to boost performance and increase customer collaboration.

Agile Software Development with Scrum is a 158 page easy read authored by Ken Schwaber, one of the “fathers” of Scrum for software development (the other is Jeff Sutherland,)and Mike Beedle who’s famous for his work in combining Scrum and Extreme Programming. If you are interested in software development methodologies, this is a mandatory read.
