A software engineering textbook for learning core concepts and practical skills
Over 70 easy-to-follow diagrams and tables depicting concepts and tools used in software engineering
A special chapter outlining the completion of a hands-on project with templates and examples makes the concepts learned more concrete
The comprehensive layout and selection of chapters show the important processes and underlying knowledge to complete a software engineering project
This textbook provides a progressive approach to the teaching of software engineering. First, readers are introduced to the core concepts of the object-oriented methodology, which is used throughout the book to act as the foundation for software engineering and programming practices, and partly for the software engineering process itself. Then, the processes involved in software engineering are explained in more detail, especially methods and their applications in design, implementation, testing, and measurement, as they relate to software engineering projects. At last, readers are given the chance to practice these concepts by applying commonly used skills and tasks to a hands-on project. The impact of such a format is the potential for quicker and deeper understanding. Readers will master concepts and skills at the most basic levels before continuing to expand on and apply these lessons in later chapters.
