  1. says:

    'Software engineering' tries hard to be a 'real science' In the last four decades some claims have gained general acceptance 10x developers exist and defects become costly to fix the later they're discovered These claims are often followed by a

  2. says:

    This is a confusing and ultimately uite frustrating book The basic premise is good the software development field is full of received wisdom that has mutated over time from simple reasonable hypotheses to being treated as established fact suppo

  3. says:

    This book debunks many myths in software engineers it's a great read and challenges what we know about our industry I recommended this to a friend of back and he said Nobody should write anything about software engineering without reading this bookI read this book in 2013 and really liked it; I can't talk about the updates since 2013

  4. says:

    This is one of those books that should have been a blog post or few The author argues some “established facts” in software engineering and the papers that spawned them I’ll list them below The cone of uncertainty Uber programmers are 10

  5. says:

    Are you in IT? If so you must read this book There're a plenty of fallacies circulating which are based on unverified statements This book busts most popular but which is important it teaches an industry newcomer or even a seasoned professional to doubt bold sayings and ask right uestions to figure out what forms the foundation of those sayings

  6. says:

    Well researched debunking of some of the most stubborn myths in software engineering combined with a thorough case for critical thinking in software engineering For some reason I was constantly reminded of Facts and Fallacies of Software Engi

  7. says:

    A brilliant book While the presentation could use some touching up the contents are well worth the modest Leanpub price This should be mandatory reading to anyone who has even a passing interest in software development methods

  8. says:

    TL;DR Bassavit demonstrates that several widely cited claims about software engineering are not really rooted in convincing empirical evidenceI'm impressed by the research and the clarity of thought He uite successfully takes down these leprechauns I think but as he admits he doesn't construct any sort of alternative epistemology He weakly suggests that we should raise our standards for empirical research and also maybe

  9. says:

    pretty much what I got from this is that you can't trust a lot of meme rules of thumb in software engineering the science sucks and is not a good fit for our industry our work is too complex and hard to measure the examples

  10. says:

    If you've ever felt like there is something fundamentally wrong with the way software is developed in a projectenterprise environment

The Leprechauns of Software Engineering

Ts of this telephone game are generally considered cornerstone truths of the discipline to the point that their acceptance now seems to hinder further progressIn this short ebook we will take a look at some of those ground truths the claimed 10x variation in productivity between developers; the software crisis; the cost of change curve; the cone of unce. Well researched debunking of some of the most stubborn myths in software engineering combined with a thorough case for critical thinking in software engineering For some reason I was constantly reminded of Facts and Fallacies of Software Engineering as one of the possible offenders I should probably reread thatIf I have to pick a negative point with this book it s the uality of writing which is easily overcome by the uality of the content

The software profession has a problem widely recognized but which nobody seems willing to do anything about You can think of this problem as a variant of the well known telephone game where some trivial rumor is repeated from one person to the next until it has become distorted beyond recognition and blown up out of all proportionUnfortunately the objec.

Rtainty; and We'll hone our scholarship skills by looking up the original source for these ideas and taking a deep dive in the history of their development We'll assess the real weight of the evidence behind these ideasAnd we'll confront the scary prospect of moving the state of the art forward in a discipline that has had the ground kicked from under i. TL DR Bassavit demonstrates that several widely cited claims about software engineering are not really rooted in convincing empirical evidenceI m impressed by the research and the clarity of thought He uite successfully takes down these leprechauns I think but as he admits he doesn t construct any sort of alternative epistemology He weakly suggests that we should raise our standards for empirical research and also maybe borrow techniues from the social sciencesI think Bassavit is a little bit too dismissive of anecdote and folk wisdom possessed by professional programmers He is right in condemning those who present eg the cost of defects is higher the later they are discovered as having the authority of empirical science behind it but that doesn t necessarily mean there is no other basis for software engineers to subscribe to this idea Economists for example are not afraid to posit generalizations about how the economy works based purely on mathematical models they think plausibly capture characteristics of real markets in situations where the empirical evidence is lacking or ambiguous or when the mechanism they are analyzing is suspected of being too non linearcomplicated for a statistical test to be plausibleIn fact they will often present their arguments using demand curves and production possibility frontiers generated from theory not from data that resemble in some ways the cone of confidence and upward sloping cost of defect discovery diagrams that Bassavit is so affronted byThe lesson I would take away from Bassavit s deconstruction is stop attributing any inherent authority to scholarly citations stop pattern matching on the scientific method as a substitute for critical reasoning devote less effort to the dubious project of imitating the methods of experimental science and effort to improving our mental models of software engineering by introspective not empirical means
