Book Description

This book aims to illuminate and stimulate the discipline of software design. Collecting insights and experience from experts in diverse fields, it addresses the growing demand that the software industry produce software that really works-software that fits people and situations far better than the examples we see today.

With Terry Winograd's introductory framework to guide readers through thoughtful essays, perceptive interviews, and instructive profiles of successful projects and programs, the book explores the issues and concerns that most directly influence the functionality, usability, and significance of software. Contributors include some of the most prominent names in the computing and design fields. Programming Languages Survey/Compilers

Design of software has often taken place in isolation from the many lessons learned in the design of objects or non-computer processes. This collection of essays provides essential inspiration for reflective software designers driven by practical concerns of what works, what doesn't and why.
