IEEE Computer Society Board of Governors Approves New Version of Guide to the SWEBOK
The IEEE Computer Society Board of Governors has approved Version 3 of the Guide to the Software Engineering Body of Knowledge (SWEBOK), the authoritative source for software engineering knowledge.
Washington (I-Newswire) December 24, 2013 - The IEEE Computer Society Board of Governors has approved Version 3 of the Guide to the Software Engineering Body of Knowledge (SWEBOK), the authoritative source for software engineering knowledge.
"SWEBOK V3.0 reflects the IEEE Computer Society's commitment to ensuring the highest and most relevant standards for software engineering, and builds on SWEBOK's long history of being the established, open, international statement of software's wide body of knowledge," said Don Shafer, IEEE Computer Society Vice President of Professional Activities and an Athens Group Technical Fellow.
The new version of SWEBOK will be available for download from computer.org as a .PDF and for purchase from Amazon.com as a paperback. In addition, SWEBOK Guide V3 will be submitted for recognition as ISO-IEC TR 19759-2014.
SWEBOK Guide V3 builds upon SWEBOK 2004 to refresh and add new reviewed content. An international team of Knowledge Area Editors produced or refreshed the content of each knowledge area. A team of overall editors directed the entire effort, and a Change Control Board approved all major requested changes. Executed under the auspices of the IEEE Computer Society Professional Activities Board, more than 1,500 changes were submitted and duly adjudicated.
The IEEE Computer Society's two software development certifications-the Certified Software Development Associate (CSDA) for entry-level developers and the Certified Software Development Professional (CSDP) credential for mid-career professionals are both based on the SWEBOK Guide. The CSDA and the CSDP are the first two certifications that conform to the ISO/IEC 24773 standard, which stipulates methods of certifying software engineering professionals worldwide.
Most IEEE Computer Society training materials and curriculum development also use the SWEBOK Guide as a foundation.
