From the simple applications that people use every day to specialized professional software, all computer programs are the result of hard work and creativity. Readers will find out how the members of a software development team work together to create todays top programs. They will also learn how the earliest computer software was created, where the field is headed in the future, and much more.
Python For Software Design
Python for Software Design is a concise introduction to software design using the Python programming language.
Intended for people with no programming experience, this book starts with the most basic concepts and gradually adds new material. Some of the ideas students find most challenging, like recursion and object-oriented programming, are divided into a sequence of smaller steps and introduced over the course of several chapters. The focus is on the programming process, with special emphasis on debugging.
The book includes a wide range of exercises, from short examples to substantial projects, so that students have ample opportunity to practice each new concept.

Domain Modeling-based Software Engineering
Many approaches have been proposed to enhance software productivity and reliability. These approaches typically fall into three categories: the engineering approach, the formal approach, and the knowledge-based approach. The optimal gain in software productivity cannot be obtained if one relies on only one of these approaches. Thus, the integration of different approaches has also become a major area of research.
No approach can be said to be perfect if it fails to satisfy the following two criteria. Firstly, a good approach should support the full life cycle of software development. Secondly, a good approach should support the development of large-scale software for real use in many application domains. Such an approach can be referred to as a five-in-one approach.
The authors of this book have, for the past eight years, conducted research in knowledge-based software engineering, of which the final goal is to develop a paradigm for software engineering which not only integrates the three approaches mentioned above, but also fulfils the two criteria on which the five-in-one approach is based. Domain Modeling- Based Software Engineering: A Formal Approach explores the results of this research.
Domain Modeling-Based Software Engineering: A Formal Approach will be useful to researchers of knowledge-based software engineering, students and instructors of computer science, and software engineers who are working on large-scale projects of software development and want to use knowledge-based development methods in their work.
The Boy The Girl And A Computer
The Boy the girl and a computerStuart Wilson a foundling is brought up by his adoptive parents Jean and Andrew Wilson. He lives in a happy home until his mother Jean dies of cancer. His life then becomes difficult as his adoptive father Andrew tries to handle his grief by drinking too much. Following an accident his father finally calms down and life returns to normal for the young boy. He attends the local school and has a crush on one of his classmates a girl called Evelyn. On leaving school and following a period at collage he manages to create a computer programme which causes alarm to large software companies and his programme is bought off, making him a rich man. Meantime he has also made contact with his birth mother who becomes friendly with his adoptive father. He manages to get close to his girlfriend from school and finally manages to propose culminating in a double wedding with his mother and adoptive father as also marrying.
