Engineering Software Products

An introduction to modern software engineering

This book focuses on modern software engineering techniques used in the development of software products. I have based the book on product development because students understand and use this type of software on a daily basis.

Software products are developed incrementally using agile methods, executes on the cloud, security is critical and it will be maintained and managed by a DevOps team. These and other topics are covered in this book.

‘Engineering Software Products’ has been designed to support a 1-semester introductory course in software engineering.
