Software runaways by Robert L Glass( Book )

"In Software Runaways, software failure expert Robert Glass shows exactly what went wrong in 16 colossal software disasters - and how to keep disasters from happening to you." "Glass goes behind the scenes of those awful projects you've seen on the nightly news - the Denver Airport baggage system, the IRS modernization - and a host of less well-publicized failures that are equally instructive. Along the way, he identifies six characteristics of projects likely to fail - and some will surprise you" "Whether you're an IT executive, project manager or developer, Software Runaways helps you learn from someone else's mistakes."--Jacket
Facts and fallacies of software engineering by Robert L Glass( Book )

16 editions published between 2002 and 2010 in English and Japanese and held by 287 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The practice of building software is a "new kid on the block" technology. Though it may not seem this way for those who have been in the field for most of their careers, in the overall scheme of professions, software builders are relative "newbies." In the short history of the software field, a lot of facts have been identified, and a lot of fallacies promulgated. Those facts and fallacies are what this book is about. There's a problem with those facts---and, as you might imagine, those fallacies. Many of these fundamentally important facts are learned by a software engineer, but over the short lifespan of the software field, all too many of them have been forgotten. While reading Facts and Fallacies of Software Engineering, you may experience moments of "Oh, yes, I had forgotten that," alongside some "Is that really true?" thoughts. The author of this book doesn't shy away from controversy. In fact, each of the facts and fallacies is accompanied by a discussion of whatever controversy envelops it. You may find yourself agreeing with a lot of the facts and fallacies, yet emotionally disturbed by a few of them! Whether you agree or disagree, you will learn why the author has been called "the premier curmudgeon of software practice." These facts and fallacies are fundamental to the software building field---forget or neglect them at your peril!
In the beginning : personal recollections of software pioneers by Robert L Glass( Book )

In the Beginning: Recollections of Software Pioneers records the stories of computing's past, enabling today's professionals to improve on the realities of yesterday. The stories in this book clearly show that modern concepts, such as data abstraction, modularity, and structured approaches, date much earlier in the field than their appearance in academic literature. These stories help capture the true evolution. The book illustrates human experiences and industry turning points through personal recollections by the pioneers ... people like Barry Boehm, Peter Denning, Watts Humphrey, Frank Land, and a dozen others
