Software Architecture in Practice

Creator: Len Bass, Paul Clements, Rick Kazman | Computers - 2012-09-25

The authors have structured this edition around the concept of architecture influence cycles. Each cycle shows how architecture influences, and is influenced by, a particular context in which architecture plays a critical role.

Publisher: Addison-Wesley

About this book
The award-winning and highly influential Software Architecture in Practice, Third Edition, has been substantially revised to reflect the latest developments in the field. In a real-world setting, the book once again introduces the concepts and best practices of software architecture—how a software system is structured and how that system’s elements are meant to interact. Distinct from the details of implementation, algorithm, and data representation, an architecture holds the key to achieving system quality, is a reusable asset that can be applied to subsequent systems, and is crucial to a software organization’s business strategy.   The authors have structured this edition around the concept of architecture influence cycles. Each cycle shows how architecture influences, and is influenced by, a particular context in which architecture plays a critical role. Contexts include technical environment, the life cycle of a project, an organization’s business profile, and the architect’s professional practices. The authors also have greatly expanded their treatment of quality attributes, which remain central to their architecture philosophy—with an entire chapter devoted to each attribute—and broadened their treatment of architectural patterns.   If you design, develop, or manage large software systems (or plan to do so), you will find this book to be a valuable resource for getting up to speed on the state of the art.   Totally new material covers   Contexts of software architecture: technical, project, business, and professional Architecture competence: what this means both for individuals and organizations The origins of business goals and how this affects architecture Architecturally significant requirements, and how to determine them Architecture in the life cycle, including generate-and-test as a design philosophy; architecture conformance during implementation; architecture and testing; and architecture and agile development Architecture and current technologies, such as the cloud, social networks, and end-user devices

Facts and Fallacies of Software Engineering

Creator: Robert L. Glass | Computers - 2003

Regarding the controversial and thought-provoking assessments in this handbook, many software professionals might disagree with the authors, but all will embrace the debate.

Publisher: Addison-Wesley Professional

About this book
The practice of building software is a “new kid on the block” technology. Though it may not seem this way for those who have been in the field for most of their careers, in the overall scheme of professions, software builders are relative “newbies.” In the short history of the software field, a lot of facts have been identified, and a lot of fallacies promulgated. Those facts and fallacies are what this book is about. There's a problem with those facts–and, as you might imagine, those fallacies. Many of these fundamentally important facts are learned by a software engineer, but over the short lifespan of the software field, all too many of them have been forgotten. While reading Facts and Fallacies of Software Engineering , you may experience moments of “Oh, yes, I had forgotten that,” alongside some “Is that really true?” thoughts. The author of this book doesn't shy away from controversy. In fact, each of the facts and fallacies is accompanied by a discussion of whatever controversy envelops it. You may find yourself agreeing with a lot of the facts and fallacies, yet emotionally disturbed by a few of them! Whether you agree or disagree, you will learn why the author has been called “the premier curmudgeon of software practice.” These facts and fallacies are fundamental to the software building field–forget or neglect them at your peril!

Publisher: Psychology Press

About this book
The writings of Michel Foucault and Jacques Derrida pose a serious challenge to the old established, but now seriously compromised forms of thought. In this compelling book, Roy Boyne explains the very significant advances for which they have been responsible, their general importance for the human sciences, and the forms of hope that they offer for an age often characterized by scepticism, cynicism and reaction. The focus of the book is the dispute between Foucault and Derrida on the nature of reason, madness and 'otherness'. The range of issues covered includes the birth of the prison, problems of textual interpretation, the nature of the self and contemporary movements such as socialism, feminism and anti-racialism. Roy Boyne argues that whilst the two thinkers chose very different paths, they were in fact rather surprisingly to converge upon the common ground of power and ethics. Despite the evident honesty, importance and adventurousness of the work of Foucault and Derrida, many also find it difficult and opaque. Roy Boyne has performed a major service for students of their writings in this compelling and accessible book.

    Nice Product, but limited usefullness. Not for critical operations.

    Great idea, great price. Nicely packaged device. I like the extra feature of current monitoring and current limiting. I like the temperature sensing, but it is of little use since it is the temperature inside the unit. If it told me ambient temp it could be useful.I'd like to give a better review. Unfortunately, it is poorly thought through engineering. I purchased as a method to remotely cycle power to an electronics rack that supplies serial data to redundant PCs. This will do the job and is almost what I was looking for. The problem is that the unit does not use a latching relay. the unit is "normally OFF". The unit can be turned on only when in communication with the controlling PC. I need something that will be "Normally ON" and will only shut off when I want to cycle the rack power. I could also use something that is latching in either state Latched ON or Latched OFF.This unit will power down if the PC is restarted, for example, if I have... 3/5 MDHusker - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)

    Useful for controlling Instrument power

    4/5 Amazon Customer - See all my reviews This review is from: USB Net Power 8800 Pro Single Outlet AC Power Controller w/Current Meter - Softw (Electronics) This was very useful for me in controlling instrument power for a test setup.The device can be communicated to directly with serial commands. Sending "@" and "!" characters can toggle the outlet on and off. The provided software was not useful for my application (can only turn on and off the outlet with 5 second precision) ,but using serial you can toggle the outlet at ~10 Hz Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , March 23, 2016
