Eric Hosick's first book should appear on Amazon in a few days. It is a careful distillation of the core object oriented programming concepts every programmer should know. Eric recently joined the East Agile development team, and I congratulate him on his contribution to the larger developer community.

(2) Testing by developers is good. So we do testing continuously through test driven development (TDD).  Before we write any code, we first write tests that define what it should do. As we expand and refactor our code, we expand and refactor its associated tests.

(3) Responsiveness to clients, starting sooner and going live quickly are good....
