Rtainty; and We'll hone our scholarship skills by looking up the original source for these ideas and taking a deep dive in the history of their development We'll assess the real weight of the evidence behind these ideasAnd we'll confront the scary prospect of moving the state of the art forward in a discipline that has had the ground kicked from under i pretty much what I got from this is that you can t trust a lot of meme rules of thumb in software engineering the science sucks and is not a good fit for our industry our work is too complex and hard to measure the examples give some ideas about how you can debunk a lot of software engineering research and call out the BS it s a short book dense and not an easy read and a little expensive but worth it for originality it pairs well with software xrays which shows a better alternative to how we can measure things in our own software developments

The software profession has a problem widely recognized but which nobody seems willing to do anything about You can think of this problem as a variant of the well known telephone game where some trivial rumor is repeated from one person to the next until it has become distorted beyond recognition and blown up out of all proportionUnfortunately the objec This book debunks many myths in software engineers it s a great read and challenges what we know about our industry I recommended this to a friend of back and he said Nobody should write anything about software engineering without reading this bookI read this book in 2013 and really liked it I can t talk about the updates since 2013 Hopes And Dreams to do anything about You can Learning To Love Photo Management think of Enchant The Heavens this problem as a variant of Code Red the well known Hardcore Xxx telephone game where some Big Data And Health Analytics trivial rumor is repeated from one person In The Library Of Lost Objects to mes-plus-belles-comptines-en-anglais the objec This book debunks many myths in software engineers it s a great read and challenges what we know about our industry I recommended Foundation Foundation 1 this parcours-d-un-strasbourg-insolite to a friend of back and he said Nobody should write anything about software engineering without reading Recovering Biblical Manhood Amp Womanhood this bookI read What To Wear To The War this book in 2013 and really liked it I can Mbrojtja Nderkombetare E Te Drejtave Te Njeriut t Where Dandelions Bloom talk about Princess Nancie Gets Dressed the updates since 2013

Ts of this telephone game are generally considered cornerstone truths of the discipline to the point that their acceptance now seems to hinder further progressIn this short ebook we will take a look at some of those ground truths the claimed 10x variation in productivity between developers; the software crisis; the cost of change curve; the cone of unce This is one of those books that should have been a blog post or few The author argues some established facts in software engineering and the papers that spawned them I ll list them below The cone of uncertainty Uber programmers are 10 times productive than simpletons Waterfall doesn t suck it was invented to have something to compare with newer and better development life cycles The later you find a bug costly it is to fixThat s all I don t know if you have any strong feelings about these facts but apparently they are mostly based on some expert s gut feeling or problematic experiments The book mainly talks about the work the author had to do to uncover the truth It gets a bit predictable after the first time so I decided to skim a bit I was hoping for some counter examples later in the book so I could learn about what we can really measure scientifically in software development Unfortunately I found myself skimming to the end of the book and to make it worse it ended with a cliffhanger My disappointment was immeasurable and my day was ruinedPersonally I m guessing a seuel 10 years from now when we find out the Agile experts the community the author belongs to were selling us snake oil all the time and we totally ate it up Talk about foreshadowing

    'Software engineering' tries hard to be a 'real science' In the last four decades some claims have gained general acceptance 10x developers exist and defects become costly to fix the later they're discovered These claims are often followed by a list of imposing citationsIn The Leprechauns of Software Engineering

    TL;DR Bassavit demonstrates that several widely cited claims about software engineering are not really rooted in convincing empirical evidenceI'm impressed by the research and the clarity of thought He uite successfully takes down

    If you've ever felt like there is something fundamentally wrong with the way software is developed in a projectenterprise environment then this book is for you The author shows you how a few cornerstones of the software engineerings discipline are fundamentally flawed It's a pretty uick read and I enjoyed it
