/Agile Web D. with Rails—Second Edition/ by Dave T., Mike

The “methodology” is you write test cases for every feature, as you
write it.

At the higher level, you should use the general “Agile” methodology of
weekly releases, refactoring everything including databases, and
streamlining your deployment. Your test cases should cover everything
so well that if someone asks you to tweak the code and upload its
latest version to a live site, you should be able to stop what you are
doing, tweak, and upload your code, including your work in progress.
Your tests should be so high quality that you can use them to gate
your integrations and deployments, with high confidence that passing
test results mean your deployment won’t break the live site.

Steve,

I have found the following resources on agile/lean methodologies useful

  1. Lean Software Development (http://www.poppendieck.com/ld.htm). The
    site (http://www.poppendieck.com) is also useful.

  2. Practices of an Agile Developer
    (http://www.pragmaticprogrammer.com/titles/pad/)

  3. Getting Real" (http://www.pragmaticprogrammer.com/titles/pad/). This
    one is written by the folks who Developed RoR and BaseCamp.

  4. Martin F.'s site also has some cool info on agile methodology,
    tdd and other related topics. Start here

hope this helps.

Thanks for your felp guys
