Description

Even now, software projects keep failing at an alarming rate, many that make it out the door are rife with defects, and even “reliable” software systems often don’t meet expectations. Rank and file programmers act as mere technicians; software architects are inadequately trained for success, and the information available to them is haphazard, inconsistent, or wrong. In Righting Software, Juval Löwy helps overcome these problems by introducing a structured and highly engineered approach for system and project design that’s proven to work. 

Löwy’s software design methodology integrates two components that are intimately connected: system design (commonly known as architecture) and project design. Together, these comprise software design. For system design, he presents an engineered method for decomposing a system into smaller building blocks, or services – addressing the area where the vast majority of software architects currently fail. Next, he shows how to flow an effective project design from your system design, accurately calculating planned duration, cost, and risk, and devising several good execution options. 

The techniques and ideas in Righting Software apply regardless of software technologies, platforms, project size, company size, or industry – and they’re specifically designed to address today’s core causes of software failure.
 
 
  • Targets the specific reasons so many software projects still fail, even when they’re carefully architected and developed with agile methods
  • Helps students integrate the two key elements of software design that must work together: system design and project design
  • Includes a complete, start-to-finish case study
  • By Microsoft Software Legend Juval Löwy, one of the world’s leading experts in effective software engineering
