Raleigh, NC—The ThoughtWorks Anthology, Volume 2: More Essays on Software Technology and Innovation (Pragmatic Bookshelf, $39.00) is a new collection of essays from the experts at ThoughtWorks, offering practical insight and advice on a range of challenges faced daily by software developers and IT professionals. It covers a broad spectrum of software development topics, from tuning agile methodologies to hard-core language geekery. This anthology captures the wide-ranging intellect and diversity of ThoughtWorks, reflected through practical and timely topics.

In it, you'll find from-the-trenches advice on topics such as continuous integration, testing, and improving the software delivery process. See how people use functional programming techniques in object-oriented languages, modern Java web applications, and deal with current problems in JavaScript development.

And it's all field-tested insight, because it comes from the practical perspective of ThoughtWorks experts.

Each essay focuses on extending your skills and enlarging your toolkit. And each is drawn from practical experience gained in the field.

You'll benefit from this book if you are involved in developing, deploying, or testing software, either as a manager or developer.
