Dear Authors,

I am a big fan of your books  and works, one thing that is intriguing me is that even after so many
years being in this industry , we are still evolving as industry and adopting to new changes in that
context though your books title dosent sparkle on the face but i definitely think that it has lot to offer
given your past works.

With all honesty ,Why did you choose this title?

Thanks
Sundar

Both computer science and the computing industry are very young. Scientific engineering goes back to Pythagoras and computer engineering goes back to World War II.

Thanks for your question. To be honest we felt that a lot of software development books were really focused on small, often academic, examples and not enough on how these examples fit together into larger projects. That's the sense in which the book is "Real World" - it's structured around a series of projects that are small software projects but certainly a lot more realistic than most software textbooks. We hope that this will help people overcome the issues that they currently face with inappropriate application of software engineering principles in a real world setting.

regards,
