In This Book is Overdue!, acclaimed author Marilyn Johnson celebrates libraries and librarians, and, as she did in her popular first book, The Dead Beat, discovers offbeat and eloquent characters in the quietest corners. In defiance of doomsayers, Johnson finds librarians more vital and necessary than ever, as they fuse the tools of the digital age with love for the written word and the enduring values of truth, service to all, and free speech. This Book Is Overdue! is a romp through the ranks of information professionals who organize our messy world and offer old-fashioned human help through the maze.

A benchmark text on software development and quantitative softwareengineering "We all trust software. All too frequently, this trust ismisplaced. Larry Bernstein has created and applied quantitativetechniques to develop trustworthy software systems. He and C. M.Yuhas have organized this quantitative experience into a book ofgreat value to make software trustworthy for all of us." -Barry Boehm Trustworthy Systems Through Quantitative Software Engineeringproposes a novel, reliability-driven software engineering approach,and discusses human factors in software engineering and how theseaffect team dynamics. This practical approach gives softwareengineering students and professionals a solid foundation inproblem analysis, allowing them to meet customers' changing needsby tailoring their projects to meet specific challenges, andcomplete projects on schedule and within budget. Specifically, it helps developers identify customer requirements,develop software designs, manage a software development team, andevaluate software products to customer specifications. Studentslearn "magic numbers of software engineering," rules of thumb thatshow how to simplify architecture, design, andimplementation. Case histories and exercises clearly present successful softwareengineers' experiences and illustrate potential problems, results,and trade-offs. Also featuring an accompanying Web site withadditional and related material, Trustworthy Systems ThroughQuantitative Software Engineering is a hands-on, project-orientedresource for upper-level software and computer science students,engineers, professional developers, managers, and professionalsinvolved in software engineering projects.

Design Of Multithreaded Software

Author : Bo I. Sanden
ISBN : 9781118102732
Genre : Computers

This book assumes familiarity with threads (in a language such as Ada, C#, or Java) and introduces the entity-life modeling (ELM) design approach for certain kinds of multithreaded software. ELM focuses on "reactive systems," which continuously interact with the problem environment. These "reactive systems" include embedded systems, as well as such interactive systems as cruise controllers and automated teller machines. Part I covers two fundamentals: program-language thread support and state diagramming. These are necessary for understanding ELM and are provided primarily for reference. Part II covers ELM from different angles. Part III positions ELM relative to other design approaches.
