CS 428 (Fall Semester, 9/11): Lecture on The Mythical Man-Month (Brooks), Chapters 1, 2, 4, 5

September 14, 2017 0 Comments

OK, it’s a bit embarrassing to realize it’s been nine months since I last posted here. But a new semester has started, and with it, my lectures on software engineering for CS 428 (at Brigham Young University). Here’s my lecture from the first class, covering chapters 1, 2, 4 and 5 of The Mythical Man-Month by Fred Brooks. I do apologize that it can be hard to hear the students; I will likely try re-positioning the camera next week to better pick up their voices. Also, in this classroom (a different one than I had last semester), it’s harder to read the slides; here’s a link to the slides themselves.
