Essence: What’s New and Different?

In November of this year, 2014, I gave a talk on Essence at Binghamton University to a group of Computer Science students.  You can catch the highlights of Part I of the talk on YouTube.  This is a great video to watch if you want to learn what is new and different about Essence, the new software engineering Object Management Group (OMG) standard intended specifically for software...

How do you keep your audience engaged when they don’t understand your language?

In August, 2014 (this year) I faced this challenge when speaking at the Latin American Software Engineering Symposium (LASES) in Barranquilla, Columbia. The night before the talk Dr. Carlos Zapata and I came up with an idea that not only worked, but also generated more questions than I ever imagined. The title of my talk was: Essence: A Practitioner and Team Performance...

Where Can People Learn More About How Essence Can Help Today? by Paul E. McMahon

With the recent news release of the OMG Board of Directors adoption of the new Essence standard, and with the recent call for action for worldwide SEMAT adoption more people are now asking where can they learn more about how Essence can help. Speaking as one who has been involved since the initial kickoff meeting in Zurich in 2010, one of the great things I have observed about the...

Critical Thinking and SEMAT’s Essence Framework by Paul E. McMahon

This past April I was asked to speak to a group of Computer Science students at Binghamton University, State University of New York, a school rich in a tradition of great software and systems engineering thinkers. In 1971, when I was working on my Masters degree at the same school, Jerry Weinberg (who was a professor of computer systems at the same school at the same time) published his...

Another step forward for Semat

As you may know from our Three Year Vision , Semat’s first step was to create a common ground for software engineering. This common ground would be manifested as a kernel of essential elements that are universal to all software development efforts, and a simple language describing methods, practices and the kernel elements. Both the kernel and the language should be widely accepted. ...

Semat has reached Latin America

Semat has reached new regions in the world. In April 2010 a new chapter of Semat was founded in China—the Semat China—and this chapter is now ready to function. This week another chapter of Semat was founded in Colombia—The Semat Latin America. It covers Latin America, which includes South America and Central America. During the Latin American Software Engineering Symposium (LASES...

A Major Milestone: On the way to a new standard

Semat Blog Release by Shihong Huang We are now happy to declare that Semat has reached a milestone in its history. The OMG RFP (Request for Proposal), entitled “A Foundation for the Agile Creation and Enactment of Software Engineering Methods”, was approved by OMG on June 24, 2011. The RFP is heavily inspired by the work of Semat.  Becoming adopted as part of a standard body is...

Agile in Everything

In our experience, to be successful with methods you need to be agile, light and lean in everything you do while working with methods. This means, for example, that how you build your method, adapt it as you learn more and use it while developing real software all need to be agile, lean and light. Even if the method you work with is not agile, for instance it is based on a waterfall approach,...

You are a developer – what is in Semat for you?

Ivar Jacobson and Paul McMahon As a developer, you care about building great software quickly and making your customers happy. A developer is anyone involved in developing software. This includes architects, analysts, programmers, testers, etc. As time goes by developers want to become more and more professional working with software. When they move from team to team or even...

The key points of the OMG RFP Draft: Call for a widely accepted kernel

The OMG RFP is entitled “A Foundation for the Agile Creation and Enactment of Software Engineering Methods.” This title is selected to loudly and clearly strike for three distinctive key points driven by Semat: (1)  It is about finding a kernel. It emphasizes that the RFP is not creating a new method; instead, it is to build a foundation that “consists of a kernel of...

What is Semat Revisited

Understanding Semat, getting to grips with what it is and how it is to be realised, can be a challenge. I thought I would try and capture a set of key features that I hope describe Semat in a way that is easily digestible and helpful in getting a clear understanding. Semat is a community that has come together to address some profound problems in software engineering with an agreed...

Update on Semat moving forward

Time flies. Semat seems to have been quiet for a long time, but for very good reasons. Silence doesn’t imply inactive. On the contrary, activities have been going on quietly and have never stopped. In this blog, I give you a few glimpses of what’s new with Semat, and how you could get involved and contribute. Basically we have been working on three things: Moving the...

Two complementary macro-trends in software engineering

We see two distinct and yet complementary macro-trends driving the way we can improve software development. One could be called “Methods & Tools;” the other could be called “Professionalism & Craftsmanship.” These two trends are not new; they have been around as long as we have built software. Both are based on the fact that it is people who develop programs, rather than methods and...

Some critiques of the Semat initiative

Given the ambition of the Semat project it would be surprising if it did not cause some controversy. Alistair Cockburn wrote a long critique at http://alistair.cockburn.us/A+Detailed+Critique+of+the+SEMAT+Initiative . Martin Fowler, at http://martinfowler.com/bliki/Semat.html , echoes Cockburn and states that the effort is “fundamentally doomed”. The issues are complex and we welcome...

Software engineering universals: where to start?

Our previous post “What is the Scope of the Kernel” presented a list of candidate features for the kernel. The ensuing discussions focused in particular on how judgmental we should be in analyzing current methods and practices, and what would be a good starting point for building the kernel. All participants appear to agree on the existence of a kernel: a core of concepts...

What is the Scope of Software Engineering?

Looking at the discussions that have been appearing in response to the initial SEMAT-related blog posts, there appears to be little shared understanding of what we in the software world mean by the term “software engineering” or why it was selected ahead of other candidates such as “software development” or “computer science”. The importance of the wording is also illustrated by the...
