This video extends the discussion on extreme programming (XP) by explaining a few additional XP practices such as test-driven development (TDD), incremental design, continuous integration, short ten-minute builds, pair programming, and continuous refactoring.
- XP teams do test-first development,…which means they do not write any code…before a test for that code is written.…XP teams do incremental design.…This means XP teams start with a good design,…but do not attempt to get all design work done…in the beginning.…Instead, they continue to evolve the design.…Refactoring is an activity that improves maintainability…of code without changing the code's external behavior.…
XP teams spend a good amount of time on refactoring code.…Incremental design also includes refactoring code.…XP practices include a quick build process…of 10 minutes or less that builds the entire codebase…for the product and runs all tests.…This ensures fast feedback on code quality.…This practice adds that builds that take longer…than 10 minutes will not be executed very frequently.…This increases the chances of errors going undetected…for longer periods of time.…
XP discourages build processes that take longer…than 10 minutes to build.…XP teams us pair programming.…This means each workstation has two persons…
