The PIC Microcontroller or Agile Software Development Principles Patterns and Practices 1 e

The PIC Microcontroller: Your Personal Introductory Course

Author: John Morton

Assuming no prior knowledge of microcontrollers and introducing the PIC microcontroller's capabilities through simple projects, this book is ideal for electronics students, engineers and hobbyists. The step-by-step explanations and useful projects make it ideal for self-study, with an emphasis on hands-on learning from the start.


Assuming no prior knowledge of microcontrollers, this book provides step-by-step instructions for simple projects introducing the PIC's capabilities. This new edition also covers the reprogrammable EEPROM PICs: P16C84/P16F84 as well as the P54 and P71 families. Chapters outline the basics, look at specific series, describe a PIC development environment, offer programming tips, and present 17 sample programs. Appendixes discuss specifications, pin layouts, quick references, troubleshooting, contact information, and further reading. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

Agile Software Development, Principles, Patterns, and Practices 1/e

Author: Robert Cecil Martin

Best selling author and world-renowned software development expert Robert C. Martin shows how to solve the most challenging problems facing software developers, project managers, and software project leaders today.

    This comprehensive, pragmatic tutorial on Agile Development and eXtreme programming, written by one of the founding father of Agile Development:
  • Teaches software developers and project managers how to get projects done on time, and on budget using the power of Agile Development.
  • Uses real-world case studies to show how to of plan, test, refactor, and pair program using eXtreme programming.
  • Contains a wealth of reusable C++ and Java code.
  • Focuses on solving customer oriented systems problems using UML and Design Patterns.

Robert C. Martin is President of Object Mentor Inc. Martin and his team of software consultants use Object-Oriented Design, Patterns, UML, Agile Methodologies, and eXtreme Programming with worldwide clients. He is the author of the best-selling book Designing Object-Oriented C++ Applications Using the Booch Method (Prentice Hall, 1995), Chief Editor of, Pattern Languages of Program Design 3 (Addison Wesley, 1997), Editor of, More C++ Gems (Cambridge, 1999), and co-author of XP in Practice, with James Newkirk (Addison-Wesley, 2001). He was Editor in Chief of the C++ Report from 1996 to 1999. He is a featured speaker at international conferences and trade shows.
