Review quote

"This is a well-written book using an object-oriented approach to describe an in-depth methodology for building software systems. Good examples are used throughout to illustrate concepts. The clear and lucid flow of the authors' writing enhances and contributes even mare to the didactic aspects of this book. - William Lively, Texas A&M University "This is the best software engineering book that I have come across. I plan to use it at both the undergraduate and graduate levels. The book has numerous advantages . . . a wealth of good technical information, useful heuristics, and good advice. The book can be used effectively by both university programmers and by software engineering professionals. - Martin Purvis, University of Otagoshow more

About Bernd Bruegge

Dr. Bernd Bruegge has been studying and teaching Software Engineering at Carnegie Mellon University for 20 years, where he received his masters and doctorate degrees. He received his Diplom from the University of Hamburg. He is now a university professor of Computer Science with a chair for Applied Software Engineering at the Technische Universitat Munchen and an adjunct faculty member of Carnegie Mellon University. He has taught object-oriented software engineering project courses on the text materials and website described in this book for 15 years. He won the Herbert A. Simon Excellence in Teaching Award at Carnegie Mellon University in 1995. Bruegge is also an international consultant and has used the techniques in this book to design and implement many real systems, including an engineering feedback system for DaimlerChrysler, an environmental modeling system for the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, and an accident management system for a municipal police department, to name just a few. Dr. Allen Dutoit is a Research Scientist at the Technische Universitat Miinchen. He received his M.S. and Ph.D. from Carnegie Mellon University and his Diplome d'Ingenieur from the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Lausanne. He has been teaching software engineering project courses with Professor Bruegge since 1993, both at Carnegie Mellon University and the Technische Universitat Munchen, where they used and refined the methods described in this book. Dutoit's research covers several areas of software engineering and object-oriented systems, including requirements engineering, rationale management, distributed development, and prototype-based systems. He was previously affiliated with the Software Engineering Institute and the Institute for Complex Engineered Systems at Carnegie Mellon University.show more
