Buy

This book masterfully illuminates extremely simple, but overwhelmingly powerful metrics, models, and methods for designing professional business cases while the author demystifies esoteric concepts in ROI.


An indispensable addition to your project management, software engineering or computer science bookshelf, this book masterfully illuminates and simplifies otherwise complex topics in ROI. It presents extremely simple, but overwhelmingly powerful metrics, models, and methods for designing professional business cases and provides hard-hitting economic justification. It explores the most popular international methods, models, and standards for software process improvement. The author’s practical tutorial on the costs, benefits, and ROI of software process improvement is a soup-to-nuts guide that helps readers rapidly master powerful concepts. He demystifies esoteric concepts in ROI and provides a self-contained tutorial of ROI methods for novices as well as economic experts and a treasure-trove of value adding economic data which is missing from popular texts.

Understanding and Writing Compilers: A Do It Yourself Guide (Macmillan Computer Science Series)
Understanding and Writing Compilers: A Do It Yourself Guide (Macmillan Computer Science Series)
In the past compiler writers and designers seemed to form an elite group within computing science, set apart by their esoteric knowledge and their ability to produce large, important system programs which really worked. The admiration of the computing public, whether it was once deserved or not, is no longer merited now that the principles of...
Compiler Design: Analysis and Transformation
Compiler Design: Analysis and Transformation

While compilers for high-level programming languages are large complex software systems, they have particular characteristics that differentiate them from other software systems. Their functionality is almost completely well-defined - ideally there exist complete precise descriptions of the source and target languages. Additional descriptions...


Problems on Algorithms
Problems on Algorithms
The ability to devise effective and efficient algorithms in new situations is a skill that separates the master programmer from the merely adequate coder. The best way to develop that skill is to solve problems. To be effective problem solvers, master-programmers-in-training must do more than memorize a collection of...
