Présentation de l'éditeur

A one-semester college course in software engineering focusing on cloud computing, software as a service (SaaS), and Agile development using Extreme Programming (XP). This book is neither a step-by-step tutorial nor a reference book. Instead, our goal is to bring a diverse set of software engineering topics together into a single narrative, help readers understand the most important ideas through concrete examples and a learn-by-doing approach, and teach readers enough about each topic to get them started in the field. Courseware for doing the work in the book is available as a virtual machine image that can be downloaded or deployed in the cloud. A free MOOC (massively open online course) at follows the book's content and adds programming assignments and quizzes. See for details.

Biographie de l'auteur

Armando Fox is a Professor at UC Berkeley and the faculty advisor to the UC Berkeley MOOCLab. During his previous time at Stanford, he received teaching and mentoring awards from the Associated Students of Stanford University, the Society of Women Engineers, and Tau Beta Pi Engineering Honor Society. He was named one of the "Scientific American 50" in 2003 and is the recipient of an NSF CAREER award and the Gilbreth Lectureship of the National Academy of Engineering. In previous lives he helped design the Intel Pentium Pro microprocessor and founded a successful startup to commercialize his UC Berkeley dissertation research on mobile computing. He received his other degrees in electrical engineering and computer science from MIT and the University of Illinois and is an ACM Distinguished Member. David Patterson is the Pardee Professor of Computer Science at UC Berkeley and is currently Director of the Parallel Computing Lab. In the past, he served as Chair of Berkeley's CS Division, Chair of the CRA, and President of the ACM. His best-known research projects are Reduced Instruction Set Computers (RISC), Redundant Arrays of Inexpensive Disks (RAID), and Network of Workstations (NOW). This research led to many papers, 5 books, and about 30 of honors, including election to the National Academy of Engineering, the National Academy of Sciences, the Silicon Valley Engineering Hall of Fame, and Fellow of the Computer History Museum. His teaching awards include the Distinguished Teaching Award (UC Berkeley), the Karlstrom Outstanding Educator Award (ACM), the Mulligan Education Medal (IEEE), and the Undergraduate Teaching Award (IEEE). He received all his degrees from UCLA.

En résumé, la qualité pédagogique de ce livre est excellente: toutes les notions sont clairement abordées, et permettent de démystifier les "gros" mots du web et du développement: une approche type "Que sais-je?".

Attention, le livre n'est pas suffisant pour devenir un expert dans chaque domaine traité, mais il permet de disposer des bases pour s'attaquer aux livres et sites cités par les auteurs qui traitent en profondeur de chaque sujet, en ayant la vision d'ensemble dès le départ.

Par ailleurs les auteurs animent un cours en ligne sur EdX qui permet de mettre en pratique gratuitement l'ensemble des notions abordées.

En bref, un des livres informatiques les plus utiles que j'ai lu dans les deux dernières années.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Good book on software Engineering, but not for everyone 30 octobre 2013
Par Alvaro Salazar - Publié sur
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
This is a good book, but it's not as great on its own. The book is designed as a support material for the BerkeleyX 169.1x and 169.2x courses. This means you'll take more advantage of the book by taking those courses yourself.

Anyway, the book (and the course as well) is a very good reference on current effective practices on Software Engineering. If you read it, it might work to keep you up to date with good software development practices, taking Software as a Service and Agile Development as it's core topics.

Both the book and the course are meant for people with more-than-rookie programming skills, so you won't get too much from it if you're a still beginner. Anyway, you might use it as reference, and it will give you good and useful information.

It's not a book on programming, it's a book on Software Engineering, even though it uses Ruby on Rails as the language-and-framework set for explaining all the concepts and practices covered. The main reason why the book and course features Ruby on Rails instead of other languages and frameworks is the fact that, according to the authors' opinion, it's a perfectly suited technology (maybe the best) for fast and productive Agile Development.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 You can feel his pain 17 juillet 2014

Engineering Software as a Service (SOA) was an excellent book for my purposes. The author offers fairly detailed steps and examples of how a manager or team lead would move legacy systems to web services and then to the cloud. This is not a coding book about SOAP, RESTFUL, or JSON interfaces. It is not a reference or specification either. In fact, Engineering Software as a Service is a fairly easy read from beginning to end. While I do not necessarily agree 100% with everything he says, I do think it's good to prepare for other opinions your organization may or may not share with the author. Lastly, I think he wrote this book based on hands-on experiences because I could feel his pain; especially in the warnings. I also think he wrote this for a perfect world (with tons of time, budget, and resources) so it will likely be incumbent upon the reader to adapt to his or her own paradigm.

This is a good textbook if you want to learn more about Ruby on Rails. It is very in-depth, and the kindle version is embedded with plenty of helpful links. One criticism I have is that they try to teach you using an existing rails app when they should be starting you from scratch.

Used it as part of my EdX participation in the course and used it as a supporting material. Even in beta version, this is a very good book, plenty of references both internal as well as external. I keep reading it since then.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Software engineering for current practices 5 septembre 2014
Par JanetB - Publié sur
Many companies have changed to agile methodologies and many software engineering courses have transitioned to agile as well since it is much better suited to small projects like the ones done in a classroom setting. There are lots of books on agile methods and there are lots of textbooks covering software engineering but this is the first one that manages to do both. The authors chose to focus on SaaS applications, which is ideal for a college course in software engineering since there are no shortage of web-based projects for students to work on. The book also provides an introduction to the tools and languages needed, using Ruby on Rails. This allows a consistency between the software engineering concepts taught in class and the tools that the students will use to do their projects. The book website gives access to all the software tools in the book, making it easy for instructors and students to work through the examples and have a platform for class projects. The book is very information-dense but is also very engaging. I also can't imagine a better bargain than the Kindle version currently offered at $9.99! The book is an excellent choice for a software engineering course and also as a supplement to the EdX MOOCs that it goes with.
