What is Software Engineering?

Software engineering is defined as the application of engineering principles and practices to software development with the end-goal of making software development a predictable and controlled discipline.

CMMI attempts to bring this discipline to software development projects by offering suggestions for roles, responsibilities and processes for software projects.

However, the goal of this blog is not to discuss process; I'll leave that for my software engineering management blog. This blog will focus on commonly experienced software development problems, and their respective solutions. The reason for this is to reduce the amount of unknowns in software projects to make them more predictable and controlled. Thus this blog will contribute to the software engineering discipline.
