Comparing the topics and methods of the three major subdivisions of the computing realm.
For 25 years, software researchers have proposed improving software development and maintenance with new practices whose effectiveness is rarely, if ever, backed up by hard evidence. We suggest several ways to address the problem, and we challenge the community to invest in being more scientific.<<ETX>>
With the advantage of more than 25 years' hindsight, this twenty-first century author looks askance at the "crisis" in software practice and expresses deep concern for a crisis in software research.<<ETX>>
In this paper, we examine the state of computer science (CS) research from the point of view of the following research questions: 1. What topics do CS researchers address? 2. What research approaches do CS researchers use? 3. What research methods do CS researchers use? 4. On what reference disciplines does CS research depend? 5. At what levels of analysis… (More)
Fatty acids, recently reported as constitutents of certain fish lipids, were identified to be derivatives of furan (furanoid fish fatty acids). 12,15-Epoxy-13,14-dimethyleicosa-12,14-dienoic acid is predominant among the furan acids and is associated withbis-homologs in regard to chain length. Monomethyl acids, such as… (More)
The practice of building software is a "new kid on the block" technology. Though it may not seem this way for those who have been in the field for most of their careers, in the overall scheme of professions, software builders are relative "newbies." In the short history of the software field, a lot of facts have been identified, and a lot of fallacies… (More)
Reconsidering the relevancy of a frequently cited report on software project failures.
