Top Customer Reviews
However, what makes this book different is that its focus goes beyond the typical software development project point-of-view. Mr. Svart clearly believes that the product quality should be measured not only by what's delivered in the end of the development stage, but also on how it will evolve in the subsequent life-cycle stages. This is something a lot of developers I know should care about, being more product-minded and less project-minded.
You will find your time well spent reading this book. In the least it will make you rethink what defines a good product. Most likely it will help to deliver better products.
His down to earth advices, namely - but not only - in chapters like
`Prepare for the unexpected',
`Problems are not solved by magic',
`Do not accept impossible challenges' and
`Do not outsmart yourself',
are of so much importance in this technical professional activity as in life.
I look forward to reading more of John Svart's!
Building a good and successful software product, that can be crazy complicated.
This book can bring quite a practical and insightful way of organizing your work in order to achieve a great piece of software. Not just a software that works, but also appealing and user friendly.
Great book to read and to check from time to time, when you need it.
