“XP and Design – Where did the Design phase go?” was presented by Paulo Caroli & Sudhindra Rao at the “3rd IndicThreads.com Conference On Java Technology” held in Pune, India.
Session Abstract -Where did the Design phase go? There is a misconception that XP does not promote design. In fact, it is quite the opposite. In this session I will cover XP design, putting it in context with more traditional development approaches. I will also explain how XP promotes continuous design improvement through Simple Design, Continuous Integration, Test Driven Development (TDD) and Refactoring. By following the XP practices developers evolve their code (and design) using incremental proven steps. Moreover this is done without waste (over-design).
