Software Engineering 2nd Ed (Routledge)
Wednesday, 18 August 2021

This book provides a comprehensive, but concise introduction to software engineering, covering concepts, principles, design, construction, implementation, and management issues. It adopts a methodical approach to solving software engineering problems, that the authors Elvis C. Foster and Bradford A. Towle, Jr. say has been proven over several years of teaching, with outstanding results.


New in the Second Edition are chapters on software engineering projects, management support systems, software engineering frameworks and patterns as a significant building block for the design and construction of contemporary software systems, and emerging software engineering frontiers.
