Memphis – A new book edited by Christian Brothers University (CBU) professor Dr. Dan Brandon focuses on software engineering for IT systems. Brandon’s edition is called Software Engineering for Modern Web Applications: Methodologies and Technologies and includes chapters from noted IT authors around the world, including Dr. Linda Sherrell of the University of Memphis Computer Science Department.
From a software development perspective, building modern web-based applications is different from developing traditional applications based on older mainframe and/or client-server platforms. Some of these differences arise due to changes in the technologies involved, some differences are due to today’s fast paced and global business climate and some differences are due to the scope and nature of the web applications themselves. This book addresses many of these differences, and introduces and discusses methodologies and technologies for successful application development in the web environment.
Brandon is a professor at CBU’s School of Business and has more than 30 years of commercial experience in both the IT technical and management arenas. Before returning to the university environment he was Director of Information Services at NASA’s Stennis Space Center.
Brandon is an active member in the Memphis chapter of the Society of Information Managers (SIM) and the Memphis chapter of the Project Management Institute (PMI) where he also holds the Project Management Professional (PMP) certification from PMI.
