This late issue of The Software Practitioner’s Digest, the first in 2012, highlights resources published in January in Better Software, Dr. Dobb’s, IEEE Software and Software Engineering Radio.
This digest has been the most difficult to compile so far, given how hesitant I was with regards to the inclusion of some research articles and essays which — although very revealing or thought-provoking — did not have much (or any) actionable material for practitioners. I decided not to include them in this issue, but I’d like to know whether my modest readership would enjoy finding articles that are simply interesting in future issues (rest assured that these would be backed by some evidence!). Please let me know what you think!
