Descrição do produto

What's it like to work on a great software development team facing an impossible problem? How do you build an effective team? Can a group of people who don't get along still build good software? How does a team leader keep everyone on track when the stakes are high and the schedule is tight?

Beautiful Teams takes you behind the scenes with some of the most interesting teams in software engineering history. You'll learn from veteran team leaders' successes and failures, told through a series of engaging personal stories -- and interviews -- by leading programmers, architects, project managers, and thought leaders.

Sobre o Autor

Andrew Stellman, despite being raised a New Yorker, has lived in Pittsburgh twice. The first time was when he graduated from Carnegie Mellon's School of Computer Science, and then again when he and Jenny were starting their consulting business and writing their first project management book for O'Reilly. When he moved back to his hometown, his first job after college was as a programmer at EMI-Capitol Records--which actually made sense, since he went to LaGuardia High School of Music and Art and the Performing Arts to study cello and jazz bass guitar. He and Jenny first worked together at that same financial software company, where he was managing a team of programmers. He's since managed various teams of software engineers, requirements analysts, and led process improvement efforts. Andrew keeps himself busy eating an enormous amount of string cheese and Middle Eastern desserts, playing music (but video games even more), studying taiji and aikido, having a girlfriend named Lisa, and owing a pomeranian.

Jennifer Greene studied philosophy in college but, like everyone else in the field, couldn't find a job doing it. Luckily, she's a great software tester, so she started out doing it at an online service, and that's the first time she got a good sense of what project management was. She moved to New York in 1998 to test software at a financial software company. She managed a team of testers at a really cool startup that did artificial intelligence and natural language processing. Since then, she's managed large teams of programmers, testers, designers, architects, and other engineers on lots of projects, and she's done a whole bunch of procurement management. She loves traveling, watching Bollywood movies, drinking carloads of carbonated beverages, and owing a whippet.

Idea of real cases is good, however, not all stories are well-structured and beneficial. I liked about a half of them

3.0 de 5 estrelas Each time is a snowflake 31 de janeiro de 2010
Por Ilya Grigorik - Publicada na Amazon.com
Formato: Capa comum Compra verificada
Beautiful teams is a somewhat eclectic collection of interviews covering all aspects of the software industry: consultants drop-shipped to turn teams "agile", down in the trenches experiences from different sectors, personality quirks, and much more. The name itself, is somewhat ironic, as reading the stories one can't help but to realize that building a great team is an incredibly dirty process: politics, structure, methodology, market forces. Perhaps the most helpful realization is that there is no such thing as a singular, ideal, "beautiful team". Instead, each group of people is its own snowflake, subject to its own problems and challenges. In the end, it comes down to leadership, and your willingness to experiment and adapt.

As far as the content goes, the most insightful interview is with Tim O'Reilly himself - google for it, it's available for free on the O'Reilly blog.

2.0 de 5 estrelas Partly interesting, partly boring and little to bind it all together 21 de maio de 2009
Por Brian Doll - Publicada na Amazon.com
Formato: Capa comum Compra verificada
I wanted to like this book more than I did. I was interested in reading how a variety of teams might be described as "beautiful". I had hoped to find some insightful tidbits that I could cull from the variety of experiences documented here to help serve as a guide for how one might strive toward beauty in their own team environment.

Unfortunately, several times along the way, I got bored with the varied writing styles and was never able to locate those hidden heuristics I had hoped to find. Like other books in this series, some chapters are in the form of interviews, while others are pieces written by various people in our industry. I found the interviews to be much more interesting, although the editors spend a fair amount of time talking about themselves which usually seemed to distract rather than add value. Some of the pieces written by those in the industry lacked any direction or focus and read more like long-winded diary entries than poignant stories about the teams they were on.

There were some fun moments along the way, but the burden of reading these 508 pages was heavier than its heft alone.

5.0 de 5 estrelas Mucho más que solo anécdotas 17 de abril de 2011
Por Jose Betancur - Publicada na Amazon.com
Formato: Capa comum
Si bien no estoy de acuerdo con colecciones de "mejores prácticas" o con identificar "la mejor práctica", este libro que bien podría pensarse va por esta dirección, realmente se concentra en las virtudes, en los errores y en los retos de los equipos de trabajo, de una forma "honesta", lo que es muy agradable para identificar la forma en la que cada uno encontró su camino natural de solución.

"There is no "best" practice --at least, none that we know of that will guarantee success every time"
- Andrew Stellman

Algo que logran magistralmente es la variedad de puntos de vista que recopila el libro, se cubre aquí muchas opiniones diferentes, así como áreas diferentes del desarrollo de software. Desde la defensa hasta lo social, desde la academia hasta el diseño de vídeo juegos, desde lo aerospacial a los motores de búsqueda, desde programadores hasta gerentes de proyecto.

El libro logra demostrar que todos los equipos son distintos, que todos los proyectos son únicos, inclusive tiene el coraje de presentar ideas que se contradicen, un punto más para demostrar la ineficiencia de la "mejor práctica" y la coherencia con la aplicabilidad según la situación.

Un libro a recomendar para todo líder, una forma rápida de entender nuestro propio contexto a través de las experiencias de otros en otros ambientes. El libro de Andrew Stellman y Jennifer Greene es una colección que definitivamente no se queda con las simples entrevistas o anécdotas, sino que deja enseñanzas aplicables.

5.0 de 5 estrelas "[Excellent] book... but it's a different one than you're imagining" * 8 de julho de 2009
Por Ethan Schartman - Publicada na Amazon.com
Formato: Capa comum
The very first chapter I read concerned a software team which morphed into an improv comedy troupe which also wrote successful (for some definition of success) code. This narrative was so funny that I was nearly in tears by the end. I would not be surprised to see the "turducken" software model or theoretical scatology enter the geek lexicon as a result. It alone is worth the price of the book, though it is also worth noting that proceeds from about every 3000 copies sold will be used to purchase a PlayPump to provide clean drinking water to a developing area.

My impression of this book is that it is the one that Andrew Stellman wishes he had read prior to turning down that project management promotion the first time. A pithy variant on that sentence would be a more appropriate title for the book. But as it is part of O'Reilly's "Beautiful <noun>: <descriptive keywords>" brand, that was clearly not possible. Stellman and Greene both include first hand vignettes from their early careers and contribute to the interviews. But in the interviews, Greene's questions are fashioned in a more mainstream interviewer-subject style. Stellman's questions often employ a more personal style as though you were witness to selected conversations he'd had since transitioning to project management.

The interview format is less than 50% of the book, with the balance being vignettes and essays from the contributors told from a first person perspective about particularly memorable teams they worked with. Many of the authors are not "famous", some have not previously been published and at least one was not a "leader". I can't think of a single one that was not worth reading. In some cases the contributions tend toward tranche de vie, rather than an abstracted discussion of the operation of the team. Because these lack a strict "how we did/didn't do it" format, you might suspect they'd detract from a "how to build a better team" format.

You'd be wrong on two counts, however. The first is that they break up the structure of the standard business literature, making the book overall very easy to read. In fact, the first day I read one chapter at random and then skipped around and read a "few" more. The next day, when I inventoried what I had read, I found that I had actually consumed more than a third of the entire book! The second count is that taken in aggregate, these tranches de vie allow you to start picking out patterns that are not necessarily apparent in any single contribution. In this way the book successfully "creates a context in which other people can think**"

The editing is a little lax, but I did not find it too intrusive, though there are a couple of missing transition paragraphs which ought to be included in future editions.
