I’ve recently become aware that Pragmatic Programmers do an excellent set of books on how to run a successful project. Particularly:
- Manage It!: Your Guide to Modern Pragmatic Project Management
- Release It!: Design and Deploy Production-Ready Software
- Ship it!: A Practical Guide to Successful Software Projects
I first came across these guys about 10 years ago when they brought out the Pragmatic Programmer book. It’s a superb book which everyone who writes code should read, it became an instant must-have class and it has been widely recognised as a book which really changed how people think about programming.
