From the Back Cover

This book is the essential guide for any student undertaking a computing/IS project, and will give you everything you need to achieve outstanding results.

Undertaking a project is a key component of nearly all computing/information systems degree programmes at both undergraduate and postgraduate levels. Projects in Computing and Information Systems covers the four key aspects of project work (planning, conducting, presenting and taking the project further) in chronological fashion, and provides the reader with the skills to excel in the following essential areas:

  • Writing project proposals
  • Surveying literature and writing literature reviews
  • Project management
  • Time management
  • Managing risk
  • Team working
  • Working with your supervisor
  • Software development
  • Documenting software
  • Report writing
  • Effective presentations
  • Viva voce examinations.

The author uses a number of real-life case studies to pass on the experiences of past student projects so the reader gets a genuine understanding of how to avoid pitfalls and ensure best practice in their own project.

New to this second edition:

  • Updated sections on ethics and plagiarism
  • Updated section on agile methods
  • New section on poster presentations
  • Extended sections on team work

You cannot find another one that can fulfill all the objectives needed in writing a project for Computing and Information System. It gives us a detailed and comprehensive information yet beneficial for all of us striving for the completion of a satisfatory project if we follow the paths directed in this book.

All in all, a good book that can stand for many decades with continuous revision and enhancement to keep up with the current situation.
