Format: Paperback
We all know at heart that it's people, not the tools they use, that make software projects & products succeed. _Agile ALM_ focuses on driving the development process through people. The core of _Agile ALM_ consists of collaboration, integration, automation and continuous improvement. These fundamentals have served my own teams well for many years. I'm glad to recommend this book to anyone wanting to embrace agile development.

The author understands that testing is an integral part of developing and releasing software. I love this book because it teaches the whole package of ALM, including testing. It provides many detailed examples of lightweight tools to support various activities, but it doesn't forget the purpose served by those tools. Included are tools for collaborative and barrier-free development.

This book is an overview, and where more detail is needed, it provides the reader with excellent places to go learn more.

When I read _Agile ALM_, I was pleasantly surprised how many of the recommended practices and tools my team uses. We had to find these the hard way, by trial and error. Why not just read this book and get a running start?

If your team is new to agile or struggling in some aspects of your development and delivery process, this book will get you headed in the right direction.

Format: Paperback
I read this book couple years ago when I had no idea how Agile works and what tools to use to support it. This book really opened my eyes and forced me to think how to improve processes at my company. The book gave me ideas and practical recommendations. This is how my journey to understating agile development started. For example, chapter 9,
Collaborative and barrier-free development with Groovy and Scala with subtitles 9.1 Agile and polyglot with Groovy and 9.2 BDD with specs2 and Scala helped me to transform my development practices to BDD style using Groovy. It allow my team to pull out a big project with a very good test coverage and maintainable tests which probably would took much more effort in plain java and JUnit.
I am looking forward to read another Michael book, DevOps for Developers, to break silos and wall between developers and operations folks, to create truly devops culture.

When reading this book it is clear that Michael has been "in the trenches" with real teams that have been confronted by real process. His overview of tools sets and the ability to boil down strategy for winning at Agile is something I wish a number of teams I work with had had access to early on in the process.

I'd recommend this book for anyone getting into Agile, but also for people struggling with Agile teams that don't understand how to do it properly.

Format: Paperback
If you're reading this review, you've probably arrived at the conclusion that you want your ALM to be more agile; But are you sure you know what to do? Are your plans and ideas up to the test?
Sometimes mistakes are best learned from someone else, reading this book is the way; It provides a clean picture of what Agile ALM is and should be, but more importantly - concrete techniques, strategies and even tools to help reach agile ALM nirvana.
This is a technical, hands-on book; Tool overviews, configuration tutorials and code snippets turn this book into much more than a "transatlantic flight pastime".
You just take it to your keyboard and you end up with an agile process, both in your head and in your code.

Format: Paperback
The Agile ALM book is not just another “agile” book. The high expectations set when reading the abstract and the back page of the book were met. One, might think that the large number of techniques and tools included in the book might annoy or confuse the readers but this is not happening because as already said, everything is discussed withing the context of ALM. You will learn a lot of new ideas and strategies and you will be able to adopt them immediately. Even if you’re not familiar with some of them, the book explains very nice the basics and moves directly to the approach that will solve a particular problem in the development lifecycle.
