In this article, author discusses the effectiveness of the usage of design patterns in software development. The analysis is based on surveys and mapping studies conducted to indicate which patterns were considered useful under what circumstances.
This article describes the relationship between architecture and process of software development and how architecture can responds to a set of needs, such as functional requirements, operational characteristics, and developer habitability. It also talks about the role of pragmatic architects when working with developers and stakeholders.
Often, requirements elicited from stakeholders describe a system’s functionality but fail to address qualities such as performance, reliability, & availability. Documenting these requirements is often overlooked because there are implicit assumptions that the system will perform to expected levels. This article describes a process developed on the idea of persona sketches to address this problem.
In this article, author talks about the need for change in predictive modeling focus and compares four types of data mining:algorithm mining, landscape mining, decision mining and discussion mining.
