Software SIG Next Meeting

The Discipline of Software 

Engineering

Presented by Mark Doernhoefer

Tuesday August 26, 2014

6:30 PM – Networking and Pizza

7:00 – 8:00 PM – Program

There is no cost to attend at McLean, Silver Spring

 

Software Engineering is both a discipline of study and a profession that requires discipline. There is ample evidence that practitioners are either not aware of the software engineering best practices that form the software engineering discipline or not using a disciplined approach to engineering software. This month’s presentation will provide a discussion of best practices in software engineering focusing on the software development processes described in IEEE Standard 12207, Systems and software engineering — Software life cycle processes. Using the process outcomes contained in IEEE 12207, we will show why process discipline is important in software engineering and discuss the consequences of not following a disciplined process in software development.

Mark Doernhoefer is a Principal Software Systems Engineer at The MITRE Corporation.  He has over 25 years of experience in software engineering and software development mostly in Department of Defense major programs. Prior to joining MITRE, Mark held various programmer and software engineering positions with General Dynamics, General Electric Aerospace (now Lockheed Martin)  and SAIC. He is a retired US Navy Commander.

Mark received his undergraduate degree in English from the University of Missouri and his Masters of Information Science from the Naval Postgraduate School. He is a senior member of the IEEE and senior life member of the ACM. He has written the “Surfing the Net” column for Software Engineering Notes, the ACM SigSOFT newsletter, for the past 18 years.

“Risk Management 103, Measurements” (Part 1)

 

by Mike Helton of Helton Associates


Software Special Interest Group (SSIG)

Purpose

The purpose of the Software Special Interest Group is to provide software quality professionals and software professionals interested in quality with an opportunity for growth and exchange of ideas with other software professionals, and to facilitate growth in the number and expertise of the ASQ membership.

Objectives

  • Arrange meetings (currently monthly) at a convenient time and place.
  • Provide a diversity of speaker topics within the general heading of software quality.
  • Provide knowledgeable speakers from the professional and/or academic worlds.
  • Keep in touch with and respond to the professional communities desires for the meetings.
  • Reach out to students, who will soon enter the software profession.
  • Disseminate information about: ASQ membership, the Software Division, certification, and training opportunities.
