Steve McConnell - a leader in defining software engineering's best practices - asserts that software development is entering a new era. Now's the time, McConnell says, for the industry to take notice and take action - and establish a true profession of software engineering. But are you ready?
Through a new collection of essays, After the Gold Rush examines the state of the industry - and the critical developments already in motion that are shaping the future of professional software development.
Whether you're a programmer, student, manager, educator, or public-policy maker, After the Gold Rush illuminates your role - and your stake - in formalizing the software engineering profession. And it describes the essential next steps in developing this new world of higher productivity, lower costs, and better software.

Review: After the Gold Rush: Creating a True Profession of Software Engineering

Avis d'utilisateur  - Andrew Doran - Goodreads

This is brilliant stuff and I have no idea why it is not discussed more. Do we need to wait until we have a massive public accident the equivalent of bridges falling down before software development is forced to become a true profession? Consulter l'avis complet

Review: After the Gold Rush: Creating a True Profession of Software Engineering

Avis d'utilisateur  - Michael - Goodreads

Decent book, not sure whether I'd want software to be a licensed profession. Interesting to see that 13 years after this book was published the industry has not made any sort of transition. Consulter l'avis complet
