PRINCIPLE 2: KEEP A WRITTEN DAILY LOG

Keep an accurate written log of your activities.

This log should contain the beginning and end time
for each activity.

This log should briefly define the activity and its
results.

Where appropriate, the log should reference particular
sections of your plan.

The “Weight of The Evidence” is always valuable in any
progress report.

You will always be able to show management your current
status at any time.

How I Protect My Proprietary Data

May 20, 2018

The original purpose of my blog was to provide me an easy
means of reporting my activity on my personally funded
research and development activities on error-free software
development methods.

My research and development activities produces a large
quantity of proprietary data. How do I protect this data?
Simple! I do not publish it on my blog or any other web-sites.

The purpose of “reporting my activity” involves establishing
the date at which a particular task was accomplished. The
task is sufficiently identified to enable me to identify
the associated proprietary data and daily log which is
stored on my machines, flash drives, and DVD’s.

Also, please let me remind you that when your machine is
not connected to the internet, hackers cannot access your
machine.

My Response to Large Quantity of Comments

May 19, 2018

I am the only one managing the blog and hence
have a limited amount of time to do so.

If there are less than 100 comments, I will examine
each comment to determine whether I will approve it
or delete it.

If there are more than 100 comments, I will examine
and approve comments according the following rules:

For each group of twenty comments, I will:
1. Find the first one that I can approve.
2. Approve the selected comment.
3. Delete the remaining 19 comments.

Thank You for your understanding.

Software Engineers are Quality Assurance Managers

May 15, 2018

Have you ever noticed that Quality Assurance, ISO-9001,
and the Deming Cycle is taught only in Business Administration?

I have found that when Quality Assurance was taught in Engineering
Schools, it was in Engineering Management Classes.

Is Quality Assurance just an Engineering Management Problem? Is
a Software Engineer a Quality Assurance Manager?

Computer Programs are special Deming Plans to be Done at the
client’s site by a computer not by a human being.

Software Engineers are, in reality, Quality Assurance Managers.
For the most part, they do not realize this fact.

WHATIFWE taught Quality Assurance, ISO-9001, and the Deming
Cycle to all Engineers in our Engineering Schools?

PRINCIPLE 1: WRITE AND EXECUTE A PLANPRINCIPLE 1: WRITE AND EXECUTE A PLAN

In many companies, when a new major task is assigned, the
responsible software engineer will be asked to make a plan.

This plan will be presented to management and the senior
programmers for their comments and criticism.

In most cases, this plan will become obsolete and forgotten
with the first software development keystroke.

To become more valuable in the eyes of management, you must
strictly execute the plan that you have prepared.

It can be done and you will learn how to plan your tasks much
better than anyone else

WhatifWe127 Blog — Web Browser Inquiries

May 13, 2018

There have been many comments and inquiries relative to Web
Browser and Display format problems relative to my blog and
website. I appreciate your comments but I do not have sufficient
time to individually respond to them. I have prepared this
post that will hopefully provide some answers.

Relative to the blog, I use the free Word Press blog site.
The only thing that I prepare is the text. I don’t have any
videos. I do attach pdf files containing my articles. I must
assume that WordPress is up-to-date relative to the various
Web Browsers and Displays. I have absolutely no control over
the format.

Relative to my website, I designed it a number of years ago
using Microsoft Front Page which is now obsolete. I would
assume that it would not behave properly on some of the newer
Web Browsers and Displays. I am currently redesigning it
using the CSS technology. I am using this need as a means of
building standard Web Site development kits and I cannot
at this time predict when this will be completed.

My Invitation To You

May 12, 2018

I became a software engineer in 1966 due to an experiment
that I had performed. I have never taken a course in
Software Engineering. Over the years, I have continued
to experiment on my own time and have greatly benefited
from this activity

In 1992, I became a home based software development business.
I developed a set of tools to aid me in my business activities.
These tools evolved over time and are now capable of helping
a software engineer to become a better, more competitive programmer.

I invite you to take a similar path. My tools can be downloaded
free-of-charge from my web-site, http://www.whatifwe.com and they are
well documented.

Software “Breaks”!

May 8, 2018

A 17 year old sailor on a submarine must be able to
fix a critical piece of electronic equipment within
15 minutes.

Critical submarine hardware has the required subsystems
to facilitate the location of a failed replaceable components.

Most hardware these days has at least one computer within it.
This includes critical submarine systems.

Can the same 17 year old sailor on a submarine find and
correct a critical software failure within 15 minutes?

Does software “break”? Not really. but software fails when
it illegally or incorrectly writes some data.

Programmers have many ways of preventing illegal writes which
they use in checkout and then remove before delivery.

WHATIFWE used formal illegal write prevention code in delivered
software?
