Practical Tips for Software-Intensive Student Projects
by Damith C. Rajapakse
This book contains a collection of practical tips - byte sized observations and lessons learned - gathered from the authors' software engineering experience and from many excellent books/articles on the topic. However, it does not intend to cover software engineering theory. The book is meant for students following software engineering project courses. It is usually hard for students to apply previously learned theories in a practical context. This is an attempt to help such students. Today's students have very little time for reading supplementary texts. That is why we try to keep this as short as possible.
