Two colleagues and friends of mine, Lee Ackerman and Celso Gonzalez have just announced the availability of their 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.
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 the days and weeks ahead they will be publishing supporting articles, delivering webcasts and blogging on topics related to the book. Details will be posted on http://patternsbasedengineering.net/.
