October 2004
Textbook Paperback

Book Description
Preface Should You Buy the Second Edition If You Already Own the First? The answer, of course, is yes! Here s why. Since the first edition was written, we have learned so much more about design patterns, including the following: How to use commonality and variability analysis to design application architectures How design patterns relate to and actually facilitate eXtreme programming (XP) and agile development. How testing is a first principle of quality coding. Why the use of factories to instantiate and manage objects is critical Which set of patterns are essential for students to help them learn how to think in patterns This book covers all of these topics. We have deepened and clarified what we had before and have added some new content that you will find very helpful, including the following: Chapter 15:...

June 2005
Hardcover

Book Description
Flexible Software Design: Systems Development for Changing Requirements begins by introducing the fundamental concepts of flexibility, explaining the reality of imperfect knowledge and how development participants must change their thinking to implement flexible software. The second part covers design guidelines, stable identifiers, stable information structures, the Generic Entity Cloud concept, and the regulation that prevents IT intervention. Part three relates strategic planning to flexible systems. It examines the elicitation of requirements and the relevance of agile methods in a flexible environment. In part four, the book details the flexible UniverSIS system and explains the applications and extensions of the Generic Entity Cloud tools.


Software Project Survival Guide

Dr. Dobb's Journal
Read the entire review of this book. Targeted at managers (from the top of organizations down through technical leads), McConnell's book provides a blueprint for a successfully managed project; the postulated development effort involves "3 to 25 team members and schedules of 3 to 18 months." At 288 pages, the book could be thinner, but it's easy enough to get through. McConnell has an engaging, conversational style, with a tinge of irreverent humor -- both of which make this book easy to approach. He uses little jargon and includes a comprehensive glossary, so nontechies should find it easy enough to follow.

Software Architecture

July 2002
Hardcover
·
 
Book Description
As the field of software architecture matures, several trends can be observed. The first is a recognition of the role of software architecture in all phases of software development. Whereas initially software architecture was primarily associated with the architecture design phase, we now see that software architecture is treated explicitly during development, product derivation in software product lines, at run-time, and during system evolution. A second trend is explicitly relating architecture design decisions to the requirements satisfied by these design decisions. Another trend is the increased use of quantitative assessment of software architectures. Finally, we see continued work on dynamic software architectures, with new challenges arising from applications involving ubiquitous computing, mobile collaboration,...

The entire development cycle from planning through implementation is presented very close to practice and the critical success factors are presented very convincingly." —Professor Dr. Thomas...

If you're designing software and systems that must be portable, flexible, extensible, predictable, reliable, and affordable, this book and the ACE toolkit will enable you to be more effective in all of these areas. Even after spending over a decade developing ACE and using it to build networked software applications, I find that I've learned a great deal from this book, and I'm confident that you will, too.
--Douglas C. Schmidt, Inventor of ACE, from the Foreword

This book is a must-have for every ACE programmer. For the beginner, it explains step-by-step how to start using ACE. For the more experienced programmer, it explains in detail the features used daily, and is a perfect reference manual. It would have saved me a lot of time if this book had been available some years ago!

Test Driven Development: By Example
Kent Beck

November 2002
Paperback

Book Description
Clean code that works, in Ron Jeffries' pithy phrase, is the goal of Test-Driven Development (TDD). Clean code that works is a worthwhile goal for a whole bunch of reasons. It is a predictable way to develop. You know when you are finished, without having to worry about a long bug trail. It gives you a chance to learn all of the lessons that the code has to teach you. If you only slap together the first thing you think of, then you never have time to think of a second, better thing. It improves the lives of the users of your software. It lets your teammates count on you, and you on them. It feels good to write it. But how do we get to clean code that works? Many forces drive us away from clean code, and even from code that works. Without taking too much counsel of our fears, here's what we do: we drive...


HTML for the World Wide Web with XHTML and CSS: Visual QuickStart Guide, Fifth Edition
Elizabeth Castro
0321130073
September 2002
Paperback
·
 
Book Review
It's important for anyone who creates Web sites--even those who rely on powerful editors like Dreamweaver or GoLive--to know HTML. The World Wide Web Consortium rewrote HTML as a subset of XML (dubbing it "XHTML 1.0") and the allowable code will eventually be stricter. Tags that are being phased out are labeled "deprecated"--current browsers can still handle them, but if you want your site to keep up with future browsers, not to mention conform to accessibility requirements, you will want to get on top of XHTML.

Of course, Elizabeth Castro manages to write books that not only speak to those who are already fluent in HTML, but are good for newbies too. She makes it a breeze to create sites that are visually stylish and technically sophisticated without the expense of buying an editor.

Among the topics covered in her new...
