When it comes to the human side of software, nobody speaks with as much insight as Larry Constantine: developers and managers worldwide recognize his Constantine on Peopleware as the classic in the field. In The Peopleware Papers, Constantine thoroughly updates all 52 of the legendary columns in that book, and adds 25 new essays published for the first time in book form.
These 77 essays offer powerful guidance on virtually every software development challenge in the "no-man's land" where technical and social issues blur, psychology meets cybernetics, and theory and practice intersect. Constantine's range is extraordinary: project management, group development, discipline vs. chaos, tools, models, methods, processes, personalities, usability, and beyond.
The Peopleware Papers includes two completely new sections: one on organizational culture, and another on making software objects more usable—including Constantine's hard-to-find, breakthrough essays on usage-centered design.About the Author:
