Through automation of the build, deployment, and testing process, and improved collaboration between developers, testers and operations, delivery teams can get changes released in a matter of hours—sometimes even minutes—no matter what the size of a project or the complexity of its code base.
Inthis tutorial we take the unique approach of moving from release back through testing to development practices, analyzing at each stage how toimprove collaboration and increase feedback so as to make the delivery process as fast and efficient as possible.
Refactoring to Patterns (The Addison-Wesley Signature Series) / Edition 1
There will be interactive exercises where the audience practices using these techniques for themselves. At the heart of the tutorial is a pattern called the deployment pipeline, which involves the creation of a living system thatmodels your organization's value stream for delivering software. We spend the first half of the tutorial introducing this pattern, and discussing how to incrementally automate the build, test and deployment process, culminating in continuous deployment.
In the second halfof the tutorial, we introduce agile infrastructure, including the use of Puppet to automate the management of testing and production environments. But I just don't think it really adds much to the literature on either refactorings or design patterns. View 1 comment. Oct 16, Ronald Rajagukguk rated it really liked it. Personally I expect more the book, nevertheless it gave me quite an impression. The book gave a lot of code example but unfortunately some of them is unclear, which need me to stare at the code several minutes till I understand the author intention.
Good book a software engineer who want to know design pattern deeper, but i don't recommend this book for beginner.

Aug 31, Marko Kunic rated it it was amazing. This should for sure be your first book about patterns. I really enjoyed the approach in this book, it is very well explained. Joshua Kerievsky first shows the problem and then refactors the code step by step into a pattern. Why did I enjoy the approach?

The book drives you into the world of patterns in a very didactic way. Easy to read, engages you to use the patterns and also, very important, when not to use it. Full of stories and real examples, it shows you the decision process to when to use a pettern or another, or not use it at all. Not using patterns is an enemy, overengineering is an enemy as well.

The more interesting version of "Design patterns" by GoF and a lightweight substitute of one third of "Agile software development - Patterns practices principles".
The natural continuation of Fowler's "Refactoring". Refactoring is my favorite topic in Software Quality. This book has only made me an even a bigger Merciless Refactorer. I like the way Joshua put the focus on learning the problem and not the solution. Jun 14, Justin rated it really liked it Shelves: software. Kerievsky provides a succinct set of patterns with non-trivial examples for each. All developers should have this for reference.

Rather than thinking of design patterns as things you cook into your program, which is what usually leads to "design pattern abuse," this book recommends you start with a simple design first, and evolve to design patterns if you start noticing "code smells" that are ideally solved with them, unless you know without a doubt that you will need them.
Refactoring to Patterns by Joshua Kerievsky
This book is organized exactly like Refactoring , and looks very simiilar in its layout. Unlike Refactoring , this book isn't quite so useful as a cookbook of common refactorings.
So, as the Afterword recommends, don't try so hard to get good at these refactorings. Instead, use it to understand the thought processes that lead to those refactorings. Don't memorize this book--"grok" it. The code samples in this book are perfect, short enough to be straightforward and concise, but real enough to not resort to "toy code. However, I wasn't so impressed with the "Mechanics" section of each refactoring. They were very hard to follow, though I'm not sure how they can be improved, so it may just be a symptom of the complex nature of many of these refactorings, rather than a reflection on the author's explanatory abilities.

A very good book, balancing the need to present useful refactorings against the risk of alienating readers with too-complicated refactorings.

A must-have for work, and I was considering shelling out my own money for a copy, until my wife bought me a copy for my birthday, because she loves me even though I'm a geek. Oh, and there are two integrated bookmarks! Aug 06, Ash Mishra marked it as to-read. The subject material in this book is what separates those who think they understand the purpose and utilization of patterns, from those who realize that patterns are essential not to just the design of an application, but more importantly to its extensibility and forward maintenance.
Too often as software engineers, we have seen two camps of developers: those who are new to the field and unaware of good design, and the latter are those armed and dangerous with knowledge of patterns, but use them The subject material in this book is what separates those who think they understand the purpose and utilization of patterns, from those who realize that patterns are essential not to just the design of an application, but more importantly to its extensibility and forward maintenance.
Too often as software engineers, we have seen two camps of developers: those who are new to the field and unaware of good design, and the latter are those armed and dangerous with knowledge of patterns, but use them to overengineer solutions. This book provides insights into a balance - a systematical method of "refactoring" to a pattern. Filled with a large catalog of patterns 27 , and with real-world examples, Joshua Kerievsky has done a fantastic job of illustrating and explaining a pattern and it's use, compared to many previous books on the subjects of patterns, which are to say very dry-guaranteed-to-kill-your-passion at the least.
Well worth a read. Aug 04, Apple84 Wylie rated it liked it Recommended to Apple84 by: developers involved in large projects or legacy code.
Refactoring to Patterns
In regard to design patterns, lines can be strongly drawn between developers. Some argue it is the only way to code while others believe the practice is sterile and inhibits creativity. I think patterns are useful in some situations and a hinderance in others; for me, their utility factors on a large number of variables, including project type, resources, language, and number of developers involved in the project. It helps to understand and research the technology if only to eschew or discount t In regard to design patterns, lines can be strongly drawn between developers.
It helps to understand and research the technology if only to eschew or discount the position. So--I recommend this book to any developer, if only as an overview of re-factoring and design pattern usage. I recommend reading the "gang-of-four" book Design Patterns: Elements of Reusable Object-Oriented Software prior to reading this one, however. Dec 14, Johnny rated it really liked it. If you read Refactoring, then this book will be the next step.
