Software engineering is a knowledge-intensive activity. It requires developers be aware of changing requirements, involvement of others, and the overall status of the project. Code, as the embodiment of developersâ intent, does not represent all knowledge required to work on the project successfully. Even in projects with the best software process practices, where requirement and design documents, bug databases, and source control software are kept up-to-date, most knowledge is still containe
EINSTEIN'S MESSENGERS, LIGO AND THE SEARCH FOR GRAVITY WAVES
By: nsf Einstein's Messengers is an Award-winning 20-minute documentary on LIGO, NSF's Laser Interferometer Gravitational Wave Observatory.
