Description of "Engineering Software as a Service: An Agile Approach Using Cloud Computing"

A one-semester college course in software engineering focusing on cloud computing, software as a service (SaaS), and Agile development using Extreme Programming (XP). This book is neither a step-by-step tutorial nor a reference book. Instead, our goal is to bring a diverse set of software engineering topics together into a single narrative, help readers understand the most important ideas through concrete examples and a learn-by-doing approach, and teach readers enough about each topic to get them started in the field. Courseware for doing the work in the book is available as a virtual machine image that can be downloaded or deployed in the cloud. A free MOOC (massively open online course) at saas-class.org follows the book's content and adds programming assignments and quizzes. See http://saasbook.info for details.

I had the privilege to attend the MOOC course on this subject and I can say safely that its one of the best courses one can attend online for free. The book however has never been available at India, Pothi offers this advantage, the sad part is the high price tag (the imported edition available at Amazon.in is still costlier).
