Software Conflict 2.0: The Art and Science of Software by Robert L. Glass

By Robert L. Glass

Software program clash 2.0: The paintings and technology of software program Engineering updates and expands a overlooked vintage within the box. The approximately 60 essays during this book--always simply digestible, usually profound, and not too serious--are the paintings of pioneer Robert L. Glass, 50 yr software program veteran, and writer or editor of greater than 25 books, together with the hot bestseller proof and Fallacies of software program Engineering. As unswerving Glass readers have come to anticipate, software program clash 2.0 takes up huge topics and significant questions, by no means shying clear of controversy. Robert Glass has a distinct standpoint, owing in part to his sturdiness within the box, in part to his breadth and intensity of expertise as a practitioner, and partially to his studies on a number of continents crossing from side to side among the worlds of the college and the pro programming store. it doesn't matter what particular nook of the software program engineering global you name home--be it aerospace or e-commerce--whether you're a researcher, hardcore coder, advisor, or supervisor, software program clash 2.0 tackles questions and conflicts that you'll realize. Bob Glass's large and deep standpoint at the artwork and technological know-how of software program engineering will widen and deepen your personal standpoint. Pragmatic Programmer Andy Hunt writes in his Foreword to this booklet, "Eleventh-century thinker Pierre Abelard taught that, 'The starting of knowledge is located in doubting; via doubting we come to the query, and by means of looking we might stumble upon the truth.' Welcome to Bob's essays on software program clash. right here you will find the seeds of doubt, a few underlying questions, and a fellow seeker." We could not agree extra. the 1st version of software program clash was once released circa 1990 and, formerly, has been out of print for it slow. Why? quite often simply because that¿s the traditional trend for software program books: a brand new e-book is scorching whilst it hits the streets, yet then traits switch, paradigms shift, and at last the writer stops putting orders with the printer. As thousands of latest books are released each year, a true treasure will be buried within the moving sands. occasionally the importance of a software program ebook transcends the unending cycle of developments and revolutions. actually, a number of the nice software program books stay mentioned even a long time after their unique e-book. Why do humans retain studying those "dated" software program engineering books? as the insights of those nice books are undying, as legitimate this day as they have been the day past. simply because those insights aid us turn into larger software program execs, greater researchers, greater managers. and as the writings of a computing pioneer like Robert L. Glass may well simply show whatever approximately the place we're at the present time and the place we¿re headed. software program clash 2.0 beneficial properties six new essays via Robert Glass and a brand new Foreword by means of Andrew Hunt of the Pragmatic Programmers.
