Myself and Celso Gonzalez are thrilled to announce the availability of our new book: “Patterns-Based Engineering: Successfully Delivering Solutions via Patterns”! Published by Addison-Wesley, the book is currently available in digital format with the hard cover edition shipping on July 2nd.
Pre-release feedback has been extremely positive and we’re excited to have the final product out and available to the software development community.
With Patterns-Based Engineering (PBE), we’ve focused on detailing how to succeed in delivering software via a disciplined, systematic and quantifiable approach that uses pattern specifications and pattern implementations. In doing so, we’ve focused on how to identify, create, manage and consume patterns – and to do so in a way that is agile, repeatable and scalable across an organization. To support adoption and integration of this approach into an organization we’ve delivered a PBE Practice and a set of PBE Patterns and Guidelines. The PBE Practice has been authored using Eclipse Process Framework Composer and can also be used with Rational Method Composer. This practice along with artifacts related to an in-depth case study are available for download from the book’s website at http://patternsbasedengineering.net/. In addition, a sample content from the book containing the foreword and 1st chapter has been posted at http://ptgmedia.pearsoncmg.com/images/9780321574282/samplepages/0321574281.pdf.
