Top Customer Reviews
For developers I show how the models of the Unified Modeling Language *UML) fit together, Luke Hohmann describes how to apply patterns effectively, Nancy Wilkinson shows how to use Class Responsibility Collaborator (CRC) cards (from eXtreme Programming(XP)), Ellen Gottesdiener describes how to capture business rules, several people write about developing international software, and several others write about testing techniques applicable to the early parts of the project life cycle.
For project managers Karl Wiegers describes risk management, Dave Thomas shares his experiences with web-time software development, Steve McConnell shows how to manage outsourced projects, Neil Whitten describes how to find a good vendor (to outsource to), Warren Keuffel and Karl Wiegers provide significant insight into metrics, and Larry Constantine describes how to manage large projects. There is also significant advice for selecting tools presented by several authors, just in case you wanted to do business with more than one tool vendor (if you get my drift).
In short, the book presents a collection of best practices applicable to the Inception Phase. Best practices that come from multiple sources, respected members of the software development community, and not just from a single tool vendor. All of these articles were picked because they describe either topics not covered by the current version of the RUP, are covered minimally by the RUP, or provide an alternate view for how to go about it.Read more ›
I highly recommend this to anyone looking for insight into proven approached to problem solving. I'm looking forward to the next book in the series.
Personally, I can't imagine anyone adopting the RUP without first reading this book series. I think it's great that someone has gone to the effort to sort through the best articles written by some of the best minds in this industry. Kudos to Ambler and Constantine for having the courage to stand up and say what many others have been afraid to.
Shame on me for not having gone to the book store first to look at the book as the online description gives no indication that it was in a periodical format.
I expected more from Scott after having read is other great "original thought" books.
