Scrum Book Available for Pre-Order

I was very excited to learn that my new book, Scrum: Novice to Ninja, is now available for preorder from Amazon, O’Reilly, and SitePoint. I’ve been working on this book for about six months. I was contacted by the publisher after writing several articles about scrum for their readers. It’s probably the longest nonfiction project that I’ve worked on since I wrote my Masters thesis.

Right now the book is in final edits. I’m working on the preface, creating a mini glossary, and watching as the designer comes up with representations of the sketches I created to illustrate different concepts. I love working with a team, and the process has been magically straightforward.

I wrote the book with the target audience in mind of web developers and mobile developers. I thought the title might reflect that, but the publisher’s including it in a series of other books with a similar titling structure. I don’t think that’ll be a problem.

I’m looking forward to hearing what people think of it. I took a few liberties as I wrote, and I would say that it’s probably not your typical nonfiction book on process management for engineering teams. I’ll let you know as soon as it’s off the presses and in my hands.
