Influential Concepts from a Programming Pioneer

About the Book

In this masterful collection, the late mathematician and software methods pioneer Harlan D. Mills offers you twenty classic articles that document the technical and managerial methods for achieving both improved productivity and quality.

Many of the articles illustrate Mills's fundamental premise that software engineers who use and understand the mathematics of programming consistently produce better software.

The impact of this book has been felt worldwide. Topics include top-down structured programming, chief programmer teams, measurements of program complexity, buying quality software, and more!

Features 70+ figures.


"ideas that have had a profound influence on software productivity. . . . one of the profound thinkers of our industry—or any industry."
