SPaMCAST 98 - Richard Soley, SEMAT Part 3

Welcome to the Software Process and Measurement Cast 98!

The Software Process and Measurement Cast this week features an in interview with Richard Soley.  The interview with Richard wraps up my interviews with the troika of luminaries that are leading the SEMAT initiative.  Richard provides a great wrap up on the goals, benefits and ideas that define SEMAT.

Dr. Richard Mark Soley is Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of OMG TM.

As Chairman and CEO of OMG, Dr. Soley is responsible for the vision and direction of the world's largest consortium of its type. Dr. Soley joined the nascent OMG as Technical Director in 1989, leading the development of OMG's world-leading standardization process and the original CORBA® specification. In 1996, he led the effort to move into vertical market standards (starting with healthcare, finance, telecommunications and manufacturing) and modeling, leading first to the Unified Modeling Language TM (UML®) and later the Model Driven Architecture® (MDA®). He also led the effort to establish the SOA Consortium in January 2007, leading to the launch of the Business Ecology Initiative (BEI) in 2009. The Initiative now includes Communities of Practice focused on the adoption of BPM and SOA, Green Computing, Event Processing and Cyber Security.
  
Previously, Dr. Soley was a cofounder and former Chairman/CEO of A. I. Architects, Inc., maker of the 386 HummingBoard and other PC and workstation hardware and software. Prior to that, he consulted for various technology companies and venture firms on matters pertaining to software investment opportunities. Dr. Soley has also consulted for IBM, Motorola, PictureTel, Texas Instruments, Gold Hill Computer and others. He began his professional life at Honeywell Computer Systems working on the Multics operating system.

A native of Baltimore, Maryland, U.S.A., Dr. Soley holds bachelor's, master's and doctoral degrees in Computer Science and Engineering from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.

SPaMCAST 96 - Bertrand Meyer, SEMAT, IT and Academia

Welcome to the Software Process and Measurement Cast 96!

The Software Process and Measurement Cast this week features an in interview with Bertrand Meyer.  Bertand and I discussed his ideas on SEMAT and why IT and Academia need to find a common ground to share ideas and knowledge.

From Wikipedia

Bertrand Meye has been Professor of Software Engineering at ETH Zürich, the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology since October 2001, where he pursues research on building trusted components (reusable software elements) with a guaranteed level of quality.

Dr. Meyer pursues the ideal of simple, elegant and user-friendly computer languages and is one of the earliest and most vocal proponents of object-oriented programming (OOP). His book Object-Oriented Software Construction is widely considered to be the best work on presenting the case for OOP. Other books he has written include Eiffel: The Language (a description of the Eiffel language), Object Success (a discussion of object technology for managers), Reusable Software (a discussion of reuse issues and solutions), Introduction to the Theory of Programming Languages and Touch of Class. He has authored numerous articles and edited conference proceedings.

He is the initial designer of the Eiffel method and language and has continued to participate in its evolution, and is the originator of the Design by Contract development method.

His experiences with object technology through the Simula language, as well as early work on abstract data types and formal specification (including the Z notation), provided some of the background for the development of Eiffel. Eiffel has been influential in the development of other languages including Java, C# and Python.

Bertand is one of the troika of thought leaders that have brought SEMAT to the world.

SPaMCAST 94 - Ivar Jacobson, SEMAT Part 1

Welcome to the Software Process and Measurement Cast 94!

The interview in the SPaMCAST 94 features my interview with Ivar Jacobson covering the 
Software Engineering Method and Theory or SEMAT initiative.  The interview is part of a set of three interviews that I had with Ivar, Bertand Meyer and Richard Soley.  The three luminaries are leading an effort to pull together a common core for software engineering and then to provide a framework for integrating new ideas.  A very ambitious and somewhat controversial task.  All three interviews were incredible and together provide a broad foundation to understand and interact with SEMAT.

Dr. Ivar Jacobson is a father of components and component architecture, use cases, the Unified Modeling Language and the Rational Unified Process. He has contributed to modern business modeling and aspect-oriented software development. However, all this is history. Lately he has been working on how to deal with methods and tools in a super-light and agile way. He has developed a practice concept that is now being adopted by both developers and tool vendors. Now he is one of the leaders of a worldwide network Semat, which has agreed to revolutionize software development.

He is also the principal author of six influential and best-selling books.

Ivar Jacobson is the chairman of Ivar Jacobson International which has subsidiaries in the US, UK, China, Singapore, Australia, Sweden and Canada.
