1.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely awful!, 10 Nov 2013
This review is from: Facts and Fallacies of Software Engineering (Agile Software Development) (Paperback)
Robert L. Glass has been working as a self-taught software developer for many decades, and because he is so self-taught he keeps doing things wrong and mocking the industry all the way. Not only that, he is also mocking the research and academia. That all without any valid argument. His arguments are self-referenced, and always caused by a lack of knowledge. Everything in this book is basically what you believe as a person without proper software engineering education. In my interpretation, software engineering and state-of-the-art techniques were already coined in 1968. People like Robert L. Glass are too ignorant to apply these. Instead, they keep mocking all techniques for decades, without applying them, and their mockery is always caused by a lack of knowledge about how to apply them.

Let's suggest the following hypothesis: Glass is mocking everything and calling it immature because he is too dumb to ever get a good grasp of any software engineering technique. All he knows are the simple bits and pieces that all self-taught programmers know.

My hypothesis is supported by his mockery (papers and books) see them on wikipedia ([...] and also by his absolute lack of knowledge of any software engineering technique in-depth (see how dumb the Software Creativity 2.0 is, in which he reinvents wheel and makes it flat).

The only reason Robert L. Glass has any recognition is the number of decades he has been in the industry. Whoever sympathizes with Glass tends to similarly lack knowledge of proper software engineering techniques in-depth. I call these people pseudo-engineers, charlatans, and frauds.

Would you mind to elaborate some more on these?
