Over the years, the library at AgileThought has grown and grown. It has some dated stuff, and I think it even contains a few of my old college textbooks that I donated, but we try to keep it current. We’ve grown a collection of books on agile software development, and I thought I’d share a few of my favorites that I highly recommend. There really are many really good books out there, and it’s difficult to keep this list somewhat short, so I’ll classify these books also:
Must reads on non-engineering agile practices:
Must reads on agile engineering practices:
Good ones to have around on the shelf (not necessarily related to agile directly):
Code Complete by Steve McConnell (a classic “must read” for any developer, IMHO)
I’m sure I’m missing some very good books from this list that I just personally haven’t read yet (and I’m restricting this list to just that subset). Books like “Clean Code” by Uncle Bob Martin, and “Working Effectively with Legacy Code” by Michael Feathers I’ve heard nothing but positive things about. I just haven’t read them myself yet, so they didn’t make the cut (for now!).
If you have any other suggestions, please leave me a comment!
