Design - Build - Run
Applied Practices and Principles for Production-Ready SoftwareDevelopment
What is the secret to successful software development? Veteransoftware architect Dave Ingram believes that a true success storyis a project that delivers a system with all the requiredfunctionality, on time and within budget. In this book, Ingramshares his secrets to building software that must not fail and heexplains why everything developers do during the process ofsoftware development impacts the overall outcome of a project.
Serving as a guide to designing and building production-readysoftware from the start, this book examines the entire process andthe tools needed to develop and test applications. You'll look atthe environments and circumstances in which a system could be usedand how to make certain that it's fit for these purposes. Mostimportantly, the book covers the practices and patterns you canleverage during design and development to improve software quality,lower the total cost of ownership, and ensure that it is trulyproduction-ready. With a thorough understanding of what is involvedin designing, building, and running large-scale software systems,you'll enhance your skills for building successful solutions.
