2.0 von 5 Sternen Veraltet
Immer wieder wird bei diesem Buch gesagt, es werde noch immer gedruckt, da es so viel sinnvolles zu erzählen hat. Die Informationen, die wertvoll sind, stehen in den ersten paar Kapitel. Danach gibt es generelle Details zum Management von Softwareprojekten basierend auf Technologien, die schon seit Jahrzehnten nicht mehr verwendet werden. Das Buch wird meines Achtens...

5.0 von 5 Sternen Brooksche Gesetz, 19. März 2002
Von Ein Kunde
Rezension bezieht sich auf: The Mythical Man-Month. Essays on Software Engineering (Taschenbuch)
Der "Mythical Man Month" ist ein unverzichtbarer Bestandteil des Bücherregals eines jeden Programmierers, er erklärt die grundlegenden Aspekte des Projektmanagements. Im Buch aus dem Cobol-Zeitalter werden die Erkentnisse beschrieben, die auch in der heutigen Informatik gelten. Sie zeigen auf, weshalb immer wieder Informatik-Vorhaben scheitern. Fred Brooks beschreibt in seinem Buch eine These, dass das Hinzufügen von zusätzlichen Entwicklern auf ein bereits verspätetes Projekt dieses nur noch mehr verzögert. Als Grund für dieses Phänomen nennt er die quadratische Zunahme der Komplexität bei zunehmender Anzahl von Entwicklern. Die quadratisch ansteigenden Aufwände bezüglich Koordination/Kommunikation stehen einer nur linearen Projektbeschleunigung gegenüber. Diese These wird heute als zutreffend betrachtet und ist als das Brooksche Gesetz bekannt. Wäre dies jedoch die ganze Wahrheit, wäre Linux und dessen Entwicklung unmöglich gewesen...

4.0 von 5 Sternen An eye opening look into the world of software engineering., 20. März 1998
Rezension bezieht sich auf: The Mythical Man-Month. Essays on Software Engineering (Taschenbuch)
In 1975, Frederick P. Brooks, Jr. wrote a ground breaking insightful book about computer science. He accurately captured someof its more esoteric aspects and relayed them in a colorful narrative. I especially liked his use of the illustrations and quotations as the opening of each chapter. Each was thoughtfully chosen and served to set the tone for the following text.
Also entertaining is Brooks' use of the analogy. In the section using the tar pit to describe the struggle faced during large system programming, one comes away saying, "Been there, seen that!" This technique draws you in and makes you want to read on.
Readers of this book will find themselves looking at computer science differently. No longer will it be just a science. The philosophical and artistic values will become clear. Brooks' holistic approach may very well sway some readers toward a more pensive view of computer science. At the very least, the reader should come away with a deeper appreciation for software engineering.
My only negative commentary would be with the added chapters. While the insight gained over twenty years is useful, it comes off as a little defensive. It's almost as if the passion which so beautifully captured the message in the 1975 version, was spent on defending twenty year old statements. I suspect that the author might argue that he was trying to be systemic and clear. In my opinion this came off as overkill. To borrow an old argument, maybe Dr. Brooks fell victim to the "Second-System Effect" of which he so vividly warns us.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Great resource for justifying development tools, 30. Juni 2000
Rezension bezieht sich auf: The Mythical Man-Month. Essays on Software Engineering (Taschenbuch)
I read the first edition when it was first released and I've been quoting from it ever since.
Topics first brought to light by this book and still highly relevant today include the concept that good software tools will always save you time, money and staff, and that productivity for software engineers is inversely proportional to the amount of administrative work they need to do.
Read this book whenever management wants to save money by scrimping on your development environment.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Classic, 11. August 2014
Verifizierter Kauf(Was ist das?)
Rezension bezieht sich auf: The Mythical Man-Month. Essays on Software Engineering (Taschenbuch)
The classic message is somehow timeless: More developpers is not necessarily faster development! Every developer is aware of/knows this. It remains to be almost a day to day problem to many projects, though. The silver bullet solution is still to be found, even in 2014.

5.0 von 5 Sternen The more things change ..., 16. April 2000
Rezension bezieht sich auf: The Mythical Man-Month. Essays on Software Engineering (Taschenbuch)
... the more they stay the same. Never was that adage more true then in this case. This book truly is one of the timeless classics on software engineering. The same mistakes we make and moan about today were being made back in the 1960s. Mr. Brooks points them out, analyzes them, and offers his ideas on why they happen and how things can be improved.
This "Anniversary" edition includes some additional material, as well as the author's commentary on what has changed -- and what has not. Even that which no longer applies is educational, in that it shows us how things have evolved. But by and large, most of what Mr. Brooks wrote back in 1975 still applies in 2000.
Those who do not know history are doomed to repeat it. If you are involved in software engineering, you will need to know what this book talks about. You might as well read it now, rather then finding out the hard way.

5.0 von 5 Sternen are your deadlines an exercise in futility?, 22. Dezember 1999
Von 
Blake Jenkins (Greenville, SC) - Alle meine Rezensionen ansehen
(REAL NAME)   
Rezension bezieht sich auf: The Mythical Man-Month. Essays on Software Engineering (Taschenbuch)
I find myself going back to this book regularly as management tries to double the size of a team in order to cut development time in half, or make supervisors out of great technical people. Normally when you read a technology book as old as this one, its distracting to see how much things have changed; in this case, its sobering to see how little things have changed. Brooks' project examples are artifacts of another era, but teams are still failing to deliver quality software on time for all the same reasons they were then. There's room for disagreement with some things in the Mythical Man-Month (most of which are addressed in the new chapters at the end), but it convinced me that making project deadlines doesn't have to be a roll of the dice, and gave me the insight to start looking at software development as a process instead of as an accident.

4.0 von 5 Sternen The all-time classic book on software engineering, 5. November 1998
Von Ein Kunde
Rezension bezieht sich auf: The Mythical Man-Month. Essays on Software Engineering (Taschenbuch)
The Mythical Man-Month is a collection of papers on software engineering. It contains the classic pappers "No Silver Bullet", "The Mythical Man-Month", "The Second-System Effect" and others. Every software project manager should read these. I only rated this 4 stars because the book has become somewhat out of date on some issues. It assumes the reader is using primitive software development techniques and for that reason a FEW of the observations don't hold true today. Never the less this book is a classic and if you wan't to be "in the know", you must read it.

4.0 von 5 Sternen A to Z for software manament is here, 13. Juni 2000
Rezension bezieht sich auf: The Mythical Man-Month. Essays on Software Engineering (Taschenbuch)
I was very fortunate to have this book read while I managed my first project. It helps programmers and managers to come out of notion that the delays and failures are integral part of software engineering process. This book presents a good material for the desiners of the Project Management courses. On the other hand those who want to attend project management courses and buy project management tools must read this book first. It contains very smart quotes and helpful examples.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Quite good, and useful for other areas of life!, 14. Oktober 1999
Rezension bezieht sich auf: The Mythical Man-Month. Essays on Software Engineering (Taschenbuch)
I read the book at a casual pace (3 weeks), and found it to be quite good. Actually, it was quite interesting to see how the technology has changed since the book was written. I find that the essay's are useful for other areas of life as well. Of particular interest to me was the man-month chapter, and it's relation to Y2K resource planning.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Of interest to many, 11. Mai 1997
Von Ein Kunde
Rezension bezieht sich auf: The Mythical Man-Month. Essays on Software Engineering (Taschenbuch)
This book is an amazing experience. Whether you come to it with the intention of learning more about how to manage software projects, or simply an interest in the black art of OS programmingit's guaranteed to be an exhiliarating ride. It's not only succinct, refusing to delve into details we wouldn't comprehend, it also contains enough general commentary to make it useful for anyone involved in large projects with creative people (which basically includes just about any form of productivity whatsoever).What makes the book approachable is Brooks' style, which can only be called simple. What keeps you interested in the book are the metaphoric range it has (calling OS programming a tar pit is a considerable reach of the imagination, and yet so obvious) and the rather pragmatic advise Brooks provides at every turn of the page. If you read the book carefully enough, you realize that it makes a series of suggestions about how computing is changing us and the way we create. Brooks may or may not have anticipated this, but his use of the distinction between "essential" and "accidental" difficulties forces one to think long and hard about how these are changing the world of the artist, and the world of art. Just how much writing today is a result of the writer's "liberation" from the static manuscript, either hand/typewritten? What does one lose when this discipline goes away, and what does one gain. Without the accidental difficulties, does tackling the essential ones lead us to inelegant solutions? Or does it simply extend our range, making it possible for more among us to create, and the creative genius to make more than he/she would have otherwise. Throughout the book, what kept coming back to me was the image of a Renaissance painter and his bevy of apprentices. One never knows to what extent the painting's essence was created by the master who drew the outlines and the students who painted the details.
