Product Description

Review

'… it's one of those books that I wish I'd read earlier in my programming career. I found many design patterns familiar simply because I'd seen them before in my own code. I'll likely turn to this book in the future whenever I suspect a program design problem might be solved already.' Computing in Science and Engineering

'Scientific software must be consciously designed to grow with a research program and the hardware that supports the research program. And how to do that is precisely what these authors in this book have shown.' Scientific Programming

Book Description

This book concerns software design, focusing on scalable design. The authors analyze how the structure of a package determines its developmental complexity according to such measures as bug search times and documentation information content. The final chapter explores the question of scalable execution.
