These slides are designed to accompany Software Engineering: A 2 Software Engineering Knowledge You often hear people say that software development  knowledge has a 3-year half-life: half of what you need to  know today will be obsolete within 3 years. In the domain of  technology-related knowledge, that’s probably about right.  But there is another kind of software development knowledge —a kind that I think of as  "software engineering principles" that does not have a three-year half-life. These software  engineering principles are likely to serve a professional  programmer throughout his or her career.

These slides are designed to accompany Software Engineering: A 3 Principles that Guide Process - I Principle #1.  Be agile.  Whether the process model you choose  is prescriptive or agile, the basic tenets of agile development  should govern your approach.  Principle #2.  Focus on quality at every step.  The exit condition  for every process activity, action, and task should focus on the  quality of the work product that has been produced.  Principle #3.  Be ready to adapt.   Process is not a religious  experience and dogma has no place in it. When necessary,  adapt your approach to constraints imposed by the problem,  the people, and the project itself. Principle #4.  Build an effective team.   Software engineering  process and practice are important, but the bottom line is  people. Build a self-organizing team that has mutual trust and  respect.

These slides are designed to accompany Software Engineering: A 4 Principles that Guide  Process - II Principle #5.  Establish mechanisms for communication and  coordination.  Projects fail because important information falls  into the cracks and/or stakeholders fail to coordinate their  efforts to create a successful end product.  Principle #6.  Manage change.  The approach may be either  formal or informal, but mechanisms must be established to  manage the way changes are requested, assessed, approved  and implemented.

"Before using Course Hero my grade was at 78%. By the end of the semester my grade was at 90%. I could not have done it without all the class material I found."

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
