The Design of Software (CLOSED)

A public forum for discussing the design of software, from the user interface to the code architecture. Now closed.

The "Design of Software" discussion group has been merged with the main Joel on Software discussion group.

The archives will remain online indefinitely.

State-of-the-Art software engineering

What do you think about State-of-the-Art
software engineering? What challenges separate
these concepts from traditional programming?

Can you define "state of the art"?

I think "Akko" is more interested in playing buzzword bingo than he is in actually solving any real problem.

Wow, what a wonderful read.  That mirrors some of the arguments I set forth in my doctoral thesis.

I like to think of engineering as using math and models to describe systems, their characteristics and behaviors.  That goes for all standard engineering disciplines - electrical, mechanical,  civil etc.

So unless we use math and models, it would be a stretch to say we were doing engineering.  And that is rarely the case in software development.

I have just recently released a website that proposes a new solution for software engineering for object-oriented classes called the Software Circuit:

Take a look at the demo to see what this form of software engineering looks like in practice:
