Overview

Engineering Software Products introduces you to software engineering techniques for developing software products and apps. Author Ian Sommerville takes a unique approach to teaching software engineering. He focuses on widely known software products and apps, rather than focusing on project-based techniques.

Written in an informal style, the text focuses on software engineering techniques that are relevant for software product engineering. Topics covered include personas and scenarios, cloud-based software, microservices, security and privacy, and DevOps. The text is designed for students taking their first course in software engineering with experience in programming using a modern programming language such as Java, Python or Ruby.
