Practice
November/December 2004 (vol. 21 no. 6)
pp. 12-13
In software development-unlike architects building houses in the suburbs-we don't fully understand our materials and our processes, so when we design and specify, we need to get involved with the details. What does this mean in practice? It means that we can't work from theory and abstractions-we have to get our hands dirty.
Index Terms:
software construction, software development, repeatable processes
