Emerging Trends in Soware Development
Category: White Papers
Many of the people who are currently part of the software process improvement and measurement communities started their careers in software development and grew into process roles over time. And who better to have in these roles than the people who have experience in the trenches and know what really goes on in software development projects. Unfortunately, as the process and measurement professionals grow in these new roles, they lose some degree of closeness to the technology and challenges of software development. This distance creates the potential for disconnects and miscommunications. Not that the author is contributing a quality of sloth to these individuals, but rather is recognizing that the tremendous pace with which technology zooms ahead makes it awfully easy to miss some important things along the way.
