Summary

A lot of what software engineers ought to know about building software is, for whatever reason, not known (forgotten, neglected, never considered, etc.). This book is a collection of fifty-five facts that software engineers should always consider. The facts are fundamental. The facts are frequently forgotten. And above all, the facts are important to the success of a project. Robert Glass brings a lifetime's work in software engineering to this often-witty book. In his considerable experience, the author has witnessed that software engineers need to learn the same lessons over and over again. In formally presenting many of these key facts, he hopes that software builders can avoid many of the pitfalls that all too often plague a project. The book covers management, all stages of the software lifecycle, quality, research, and much more. The author even presents ten common fallacies that help support the fifty-five facts. Anyone with an interest in building better software can benefit from this thought-provoking new book.
