With this book, you'll get a candid and insightful look at how software is constructed and maintained by some of the world's leading practitioners. Titus Winters, Tom Manshreck, and Hyrum K. Wright, software engineers and a technical writer at Google, reframe how software engineering is practiced and taught: from an emphasis on programming to an emphasis on software engineering, which roughly translates to programming over time. You'll learn: Fundamental differences between software engineering and programming How an organization effectively manages a living codebase and efficiently responds to inevitable change Why culture (and recognizing it) is important, and how processes, practices, and tools come into play.
