Abstract:

This module, which was written specifically for software engineers, discusses writing in the context of software engineering. Its focus is on the basic problem-solving activities that underlie effective writing, many of which are similar to those underlying software development. The module draws on related work in a number of disciplines, including rhetorical theory, discourse analysis, linguistics, and document design. It suggests techniques for becoming an effective writer and offers criteria for evaluating writing.
