Design – Build – Run

Applied Practices and Principles for Production–Ready Software Development

What is the secret to successful software development? Veteran software architect Dave Ingram believes that a true success story is a project that delivers a system with all the required functionality, on time and within budget. In this book, Ingram shares his secrets to building software that must not fail and he explains why everything developers do during the process of software development impacts the overall outcome of a project.

Serving as a guide to designing and building production–ready software from the start, this book examines the entire process and the tools needed to develop and test applications. You′ll look at the environments and circumstances in which a system could be used and how to make certain that it′s fit for these purposes. Most importantly, the book covers the practices and patterns you can leverage during design and development to improve software quality, lower the total cost of ownership, and ensure that it is truly production–ready. With a thorough understanding of what is involved in designing, building, and running large–scale software systems, you′ll enhance your skills for building successful solutions.
