Software Development Pearls: Lessons from Fifty Years of Software Experience: Accelerate Your Pursuit of Software Excellence by Learning from Others’ Hard-Won Experience

Experience is a powerful teacher, but it’s also slow and painful. You can’t afford to make every mistake yourself! Software Development Pearls: Lessons from Fifty Years of Software Experience helps you improve faster and bypass much of the pain by learning from others who already climbed the learning curves. Drawing on 25+ years helping software teams succeed, Karl Wiegers has crystallized 60 concise, practical lessons for all your projects, regardless of your role, industry, technology, or methodology.

  • Clarify requirements to gain a shared vision and understanding of your real problem
  • Create robust designs that implement the right functionality and quality attributes and can evolve
  • Anticipate and avoid ubiquitous project management pitfalls
  • Grow a culture in which behaviors actually align with what people claim to value
  • Plan realistically for quality and build it in from the outset
  • Use process improvement to achieve desired business results, not as an end in itself
  • Choose your next steps to get full value from all these lessons

Wiegers’s insights and specific recommendations cover six crucial elements of success: requirements, design, project management, culture and teamwork, quality, and process improvement. For each, Wiegers offers First Steps for reflecting on your own experiences before you start; detailed Lessons with core insights, real case studies, and actionable solutions; and Next Steps for planning adoption in your project, team, or organization. This is knowledge you weren’t taught in college or boot camp. It can boost your performance as a developer, business analyst, quality professional, or manager.
