A Practical Guide to Feature Driven Development
Feature Driven Development (FDD), created by Peter Coad and Jeff de Luca, combines the compelling advantages of agile methodologies with model-driven techniques that scale to the largest teams and projects. This book demonstrates FDD at work in real-world projects, giving project leaders all the information they need to successfully apply it in their own organizations. The authors begin by introducing FDD's goals and rationale, and the compelling advantages of its model-driven, short-iteration approach to software development. You'll discover which types of projects FDD is best suited for; and understand FDD's roles, artifacts, goals, and timelines. The book includes practical, hands-on coverage of all five key FDD activities: developing an overall model, building a feature list, "plan by feature," "design by feature," and "build by feature." The book also offers specific guidance on adapting FDD to many different types of projects.
