Example text

Who has not been annoyed by the following famous message that appears so often when attempting to connect to an interesting website? ERROR 404: File not found. It is obvious what happened to the information that the user wanted, at least if there was no typing error. As we will see later in this book, maintenance of websites is often a form of “configuration management,” which is the systematic treatment of software and related artifacts that change over time as a system evolves. There are also major issues in ensuring the security of data on servers and preventing unwanted server interaction with the user’s client computer.

The users testing the software would be asked about the collection of features available with each version of Internet Explorer. The user interface not only had to work correctly, but the software had to have a set of features that was of sufficient perceived value to make other potential users change from their existing Internet browsers if they already used one or purchase Microsoft Internet Explorer if they had never used such a product before. Thus, the process of development for this software had to be iterative.

Some anecdotal information appears to suggest that teams of software engineers are not necessary for some systems that are larger than the typical smartphone app. For example, the initial version of the MS-DOS operating system was largely developed by two people, Bill Gates and Paul Allen of Microsoft. The Apple DOS disk operating system for the hugely successful Apple II family of computers was created by two people, Steve Jobs and Steve Wozniak, with Wozniak doing most of the development. The UNIX operating system was originally developed by Dennis Ritchie and Kenneth Thompson (Ritchie and Thompson, 1978).
