"The Challenge of Pervasive Software to the Conventional Wisdom of Software Engineering"

Mary Shaw
School of Computer Science
Carnegie Mellon University


Abstract:

The conventional wisdom of software engineering holds that software systems are developed by software professionals, that they have knowable (if evolving) requirements, that project managers control system configurations, that results can be computed directly, and that the systems can, at least in principle, be validated.
