Extreme Perl

Extreme Perl is a book about Extreme Programming using the programming language Perl. This free perl ebook can be downloaded in html and pdf formats. This book is about a marriage of two compatible yet unlikely partners. Extreme Programming (XP) is a software development methodology that enables users, business people, programmers, and computers to communicate effectively.


Perl is a dynamic programming language that lets an XP team embrace the inevitable change caused by effective communication. Perl is the fixer and doer of the pair, and XP is the organizer and facilitator. Together they help you build robust software applications efficiently. 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.
