In practice, requirements engineering tasks have become increasingly complex. In order to ensure a high level of knowledge and competency among requirements engineers, the International Requirements Engineering Board (IREB) developed a standardized qualification called the Certified Professional for Requirements Engineering (CPRE). The certification defines the practical skills of a requirements engineer on various training levels. This book is designed for self-study and covers the curriculum for the Certified Professional for Requirements Engineering Foundation Level exam as defined by the IREB. The 2nd edition has been thoroughly revised and is aligned with the curriculum Version 2.2 of the IREB. In addition, some minor corrections to the 1st edition have been included. About IREB: The mission of the IREB is to contribute to the standardization of further education in the fields of business analysis and requirements engineering by providing syllabi and examinations, thereby achieving a higher level of applied requirements engineering. The IREB is comprised of a balanced mix of independent, internationally recognized experts in the fields of economy, consulting, research, and science. The IREB is a non-profit corporation.

Cult of the Dead Cow: How the Original Hacking ...
23,99 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

The shocking untold story of the elite secret society of hackers fighting to protect our privacy, our freedom -- even democracy itself Cult of the Dead Cow is the tale of the oldest, most respected, and most famous American hacking group of all time. Though until now it has remained mostly anonymous, its members invented the concept of hacktivism, released the top tool for testing password security, and created what was for years the best technique for controlling computers from afar, forcing giant companies to work harder to protect customers. They contributed to the development of Tor, the most important privacy tool on the net, and helped build cyberweapons that advanced US security without injuring anyone. With its origins in the earliest days of the Internet, the cDc is full of oddball characters -- activists, artists, even future politicians. Many of these hackers have become top executives and advisors walking the corridors of power in Washington and Silicon Valley. The most famous is former Texas Congressman and current presidential candidate Beto O´Rourke, whose time in the cDc set him up to found a tech business, launch an alternative publication in El Paso, and make long-shot bets on unconventional campaigns. Today, the group and its followers are battling electoral misinformation, making personal data safer, and battling to keep technology a force for good instead of for surveillance and oppression. Cult of the Dead Cow shows how governments, corporations, and criminals came to hold immense power over individuals and how we can fight back against them.

Peter Seibel interviews 15 of the most interesting computer programmers alive today in Coders at Work , offering a companion volume to Apress´s highly acclaimed best-seller Founders at Work by Jessica Livingston. As the words at work suggest, Peter Seibel focuses on how his interviewees tackle the day-to-day work of programming, while revealing much more, like how they became great programmers, how they recognize programming talent in others, and what kinds of problems they find most interesting. Hundreds of people have suggested names of programmers to interview on the Coders at Work web site: www.codersatwork.com. The complete list was 284 names. Having digested everyone´s feedback, we selected 15 folks who´ve been kind enough to agree to be interviewed: Frances Allen: Pioneer in optimizing compilers, first woman to win the Turing Award (2006) and first female IBM fellow Joe Armstrong: Inventor of Erlang Joshua Bloch: Author of the Java collections framework, now at Google Bernie Cosell: One of the main software guys behind the original ARPANET IMPs and a master debugger Douglas Crockford: JSON founder, JavaScript architect at Yahoo!

Agile Estimating and Planning
37,99 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

The first step to project success is accurate estimating and realistic planning. Projects with unrealistic expectations affixed to them are likely to derail at an early stage. This book shows the software practitioner how to effectively estimate and properly plan a project within an agile context. The book´s content is suitable for projects using any agile or semi-agile process (such as Extreme Programming, Scrum, Feature Driven Development, Crystal, Adaptive Software Development, DSDM or even the IBM Rational Unified Process). The ideas in this book will work with any iterative development process, which greatly broadens the target audience beyond the traditional agile community. Each chapter is supported by a summary and a set of questions that allows readers to assess their ability to estimate and plan a project. The result is an engaging read with pearls of wisdom that can be applied to the reader´s next project. Product Description Praise for Agile Estimating and Planning Traditional, deterministic approaches to planning and estimating simply don´t cut it on the slippery slopes of today´s dynamic, change-driven projects. Mike Cohn´s breakthrough book gives us not only the philosophy, but also the guidelines and a proven set of tools that we need to succeed in planning, estimating, and scheduling projects with a high uncertainty factor. At the same time, the author never loses sight of the need to deliver business value to the customer each step of the way. -Doug DeCarlo, author of eXtreme Project Management: Using Leadership, Principles and Tools to Deliver Value in the Face of Volatility (Jossey-Bass, 2004) We know how to build predictive plans and manage them. But building plans that only estimate the future and then embrace change, challenge most of our training and skills. In Agile Estimating and Planning , Mike Cohn once again fills a hole in the Agile practices, this time by showing us a workable approach to Agile estimating and planning. Mike delves into the nooks and crannies of the subject and anticipates many of the questions and nuances of this topic. Students of Agile processes will recognize that this book is truly about agility, bridging many of the practices between Scrum and ExtremeProgramming. -Ken Schwaber, Scrum evangelist, Agile Alliance cofounder, and signatory to the Agile Manifesto In Agile Estimating and Planning , Mike Cohn has, for the first time, brought together most everything that the Agile community has learned about the subject. The book is clear, well organized, and a pleasant and valuable read. It goes into all the necessary detail, and at the same time keeps the reader´s burden low. We can dig in as deeply as we need to, without too much detail before we need it. The book really brings together everything we have learned about Agile estimation and planning over the past decade. It will serve its readers well. -Ron Jeffries, www.XProgramming.com, author of Extreme Programming Installed (Addison-Wesley, 2001) and Extreme Programming Adventures in C# (Microsoft Press, 2004) Agile Estimating and Planning provides a view of planning that´s balanced between theory and practice, and it is supported by enough concrete experiences to lend it credibility. I particularly like the quote ´planning is a quest for value.´ It points to a new, more positive attitude toward planning that goes beyond the ´necessary evil´ view that I sometimes hold. -Kent Beck, author of Extreme Programming Explained, Second Edition (Addison-Wesley, 2005) Up-front planning is still the most critical part of software development. Agile software development requires Agile planning techniques. This book shows you how to employ Agile planning in a succinct, practical, and easy-to-follow manner. -Adam Rogers, Ultimate Software Mike does a great follow-up to User Stories Applied by continuing to provide Agile teams with the practical approaches and techniques to increase agility. In this book, Mike provides time-proven and well-tested methods for being successful with the multiple levels of planning and estimating required by Agile. This book is the first to detail the disciplines of Agile estimating and planning, in ways that rival my 1980 civil engineering texts on CPM Planning and Estimating. -Ryan Martens, President and Founder, Rally Software Development Corporation With insight and clarity, Mike Cohn shows how to effectively produce software of high business value. With Agile estimation and planning, you focus
