Playing Games with Software Design

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution

Abstract / Description of output

Modern software development processes openly acknowledge what software designers have always whispered: software design is not done as a monolithic phase between analysis and implementation. Rather, the process of designing software is incremental, experimental, often concurrent, and interleaved with other activities. It is a game, in the sense that it involves strategising, exploring options, balancing objectives—and in the sense that it can be fun to do in groups!
