At a course I held recently, one of the participants kept a record of all the resources that were mentioned during over the two days.

There are endless “vitamins” that can be extracted from this behavior — taking roles in a team, encouraging learning, fostering a growth culture — to name just a few.

Instead of telling you what I think you can learn from this, I am sharing the list of resources that she recorded.

  2. Daniel Kahneman – Thinking, Fast and Slow
  3. Robert Martin – Clean Code: A Handbook of Agile Software Craftsmanship
  4. Kent Beck – Extreme Programming Explained: Embrace Change
  5. Michael Feathers – Working Effectively with Legacy Code

  7. Shirly Ronen-Harel & Danny Kovatch – Agile Kids
