Agile Software Requirements: Lean Requirements Practices for Teams, Programs, and the Enterprise

Agile Software Requirements: Lean Requirements Practices for Teams, Programs, and the Enterprise PDF “We need better approaches to understanding and managing software requirements, and Dean provides them in this book. He draws ideas from three very useful intellectual pools: classical management practices, Agile methods, and lean product development. By combining the strengths of these three… Continue reading Agile Software Requirements: Lean Requirements Practices for Teams, Programs, and the Enterprise

The Leverage Principle: A Software Architect’s Guide to Optimizing Development and Operations

The Leverage Principle: A Software Architect’s Guide to Optimizing Development and Operations Software development is expensive and it is far more expensive than it needs to be. The pace of development has increased dramatically with the arrival of cloud-based apps and continuous delivery and the processes for software development and operations have to adapt to… Continue reading The Leverage Principle: A Software Architect’s Guide to Optimizing Development and Operations

Bayesian Heuristic Approach to Discrete and Global Optimization: Algorithms, Visualization, Software, and Applications (Nonconvex Optimization and Its Applications)

Bayesian Heuristic Approach to Discrete and Global Optimization: Algorithms, Visualization, Software, and Applications (Nonconvex Optimization and Its Applications) Bayesian decision theory is known to provide an effective framework for the practical solution of discrete and nonconvex optimization problems. This book is the first to demonstrate that this framework is also well suited for the exploitation… Continue reading Bayesian Heuristic Approach to Discrete and Global Optimization: Algorithms, Visualization, Software, and Applications (Nonconvex Optimization and Its Applications)
