Learn twenty software reading techniques to enhance your effectiveness in reviewing and inspecting software artifacts such as requirements specifications, designs, code files, and usability. Software review and inspection is the best practice in software development that detects and fixes problems early. Software professionals are trained to write software but not read and analyze software written by peers. As a result, individual reading skills vary widely. Because the effectiveness of software review and inspection is highly dependent on individual reading skills, differential outcomes among software readers vary by a factor of ten. Software Reading Techniques is designed to close that gap.
Dr Yang-Ming Zhu's depth of experience as a software architect, team leader, and scientist make him singularly well-equipped to bring you up to speed on all the techniques and tips for optimizing the effectiveness and efficiency of your software review and inspection skills.

"Eight chapters cover generic software reading techniques that apply to any artifact and specific techniques that apply only to requirements, designs, or code. ... The book's primary audience is software engineering practitioners. As a practicing software developer who has been doing reviews and inspections on all sorts of material for many years, I highly recommend it to anyone interested in software reviews. It would also be an excellent source for software engineering researchers interested in quality assurance or software reviews." (Computing Reviews, September, 2017)
