Software SIG Next Meeting
The Discipline of Software
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 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.
