"We killed Kenny!"
THE SOFTWARE CRISIS
The software industry is in a state of crisis. Software appears
in almost every aspect of life, from the desktop, to the car, to the
living room. Some of the software being written is used in
mission-critical and real-time situtations where human lives are at
stake. The public is becoming distrustful of the software industry,
as it delivers software that is typically over budget, under scheduled,
and of poor quality. We hope to examine some major areas where
software failed, and try to point out why things are the way there are.
Hopefully, you'll gain some insight into the problem and come away with
some pointers to help prevent these problems in the future.
