This time we have an author and researcher in our show ! Subhajit Datta is a researcher with IBM and is also very passionate about writing. He has written two interesting books Software Engineering: Concepts and Applications and Metrics-Driven Enterprise Software Development. He is also a visiting professor in IIITB. In this episode we talked about a topic which always makes us think - software engineering in theory and practice.
We know some form of it is taught but how much of theory is enough to bring it to practice ? We tried covering this rather difficult topic and it was very nice chat.
Subhajit also maintains a blog which is here.
Note: Around 35 minutes into the recording speaker has refereed to the "WISWYG syndrome" and then gone on to explain it as "I Know it Once I See it". Speaker meant "IKIWISI syndrome" and not "WISWYG"
