    For some time now, Ivar Jacobson and his colleagues at SEMAT have been developing what they call Essence. Essence is a set of language and idioms used to describe software engineering practices and methods. It also consists of the “kernel for software engineering”. In a new article published at ACM QUEUE magazine, they claim that...

    Extreme Programming (XP) introduced us with multiple central techniques like pair-programming, small releases, incremental planning, continuous integration and many more. One of the key techniques of XP is test-first programming! The whole process from a small design, incremental code and continuous testing is known as Test Driven Development (TDD). The test-first programming constitutes of...

    Different viewpoints to software quality

    by  • June 2, 2014 • Quality measurement, Software engineering, Software quality

    Kitchenham, and Pfleeger (1996) characterize software quality as an elusive target and, basically, software quality can be split into product quality and process quality, yet this helps little as numerous quality targets can be found for both. To provide a more holistic understanding of different approaches we summarize here Garvin’s views of product quality...

    Open systems and software ecosystem

    by  • September 10, 2013 • Market trends, Software engineering

    Software ecosystems is a recent paradigm within the domain of software engineering, referring to a networked community of organizations or actors, which base their relations to each other on a common interest in the development and use of a central software technology. Some other definitions of this emerging concept have been proposed, for example...
