The Biological Half-Life of Software Engineering Ideas
Sept.-Oct. 2008 (vol. 25 no. 5)
pp. 10-11
Philippe Kruchten, University of British Columbia
The first installment of this new column on professional development discusses how some software engineering ideas have a half-life. The author conjectures that this half-life is roughly five years, and outlines the need for software engineers to thus stay abreast of new technologies.
