|The Personal Software Process: an Independent Study|
|Prev||Chapter 1. Lesson 1: Introduction to the Personal Software Process||Next|
Overall, a fairly interesting (and humbling) introduction to the ideas of PSP. The granularity of data collection is quite high, and as I've gotten used to using the compiler to check my work periodically, the rigorous division into "design then code then compile" etc. feels extremely artificial. I've gotten so used to just fixing things that I'm sure I missed recording a few defects.
Still, the tools are useful, if only to shine a quick light on my current practices. While I'm embarassed that I couldn't satisfy my original design goals without taking an exorbitant amount of time to troubleshoot, this was a relatively painless and interesting introduction to the PSP; I'm terribly curious to see what happens next..
