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.
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
- 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 :)
