This book invites Perl programmers and their customers to take a fresh look at software development. Customers, and business people in general, will learn how XP enables customer-programmer communication for efficient and flexible requirements gathering. Programmers will see how XP's focus on teamwork, incremental testing, and continuous design allows them to take pride in their craft. The numerous examples demonstrate Extreme Perl in action, including the development of a complete, end-to-end application in the last chapter.
