The Mythical Man-Month Book Arrived !

Posted on September 28, 2006, 10:58 pm EST

Finally, everyone is telling me that the book "The Mythical Man-Month" is a must have. So I went on Amazon and ordered it the same day. It arrived today.

Mythical Man-Month

The Mythical Man-Month is a book on Software Project Management which consists of real life essays. It is based on the authors experiences in IBM while developing the OS/360.

So starting now, I am going to start reading it every day:) And wish I wont be disappointed. So here is the question for whoever is reading this blog, Did you ever read this book? Did you enjoy reading it? I will post what I think about it while reading it.

The ideas presented are the following:

  • The Mythical Man-Month
  • The Second-system Effect
  • Progess Tracking
  • Conceptual Integrity
  • The Manual
  • The Pilot System
  • Formal Documents
  • Project Estimation
  • Communication
  • the Surgical Team
  • Code Freeze and System Versioning
  • Specialized Tools
  • Lowering Software Development Costs

So from all those interesting topics, I am looking forward reading this so called "facinating" book. Wish me Luck :)
