2018 – The Year of Software Diagnostics Engineering

2017 was again a pivotal year for pattern-oriented software diagnostics with its software development turn, the birth of Software Diagnostics Engineering discipline and Diagnostics-Driven Development methodology. We look ahead to 2018 with more software engineering articles, descriptions of new DebugWare and DiagWare patterns, new projects, tools, training and reference books. The decade of 2010 – 2020 is the most prolific in software variety* during the short course of software evolution, an analog of the Cambrian explosion with emerging new forms of AI machines capable of learning. These are the most exciting times for software diagnostics.

Happy New Year!
