    Links to Software Engineering concepts

    Could anyone recommend a good web site for software engineering concepts? In particular I am looking for things like generating software requirement specifications, use case analysis, coming up with top level design etc., pretty much a step by step guide on how to deliver a software product from start to finish. I've spent hours researching on the internet but haven't come across anything helpful yet.

    Thanks a lot.

    If you dance barefoot on the broken glass of undefined behaviour, you've got to expect the occasional cut.
    If at first you don't succeed, try writing your phone number on the exam paper.
    I support http://www.ukip.org/ as the first necessary step to a free Europe.

    Thanks Salem. This would help. I was looking for some detailed descriptions on the steps such as how to go from systems requirements to software requirements, and how to generate use cases etc., but I guess I will have to pay for that kind of details.

    Cheers.

    Via careful thought. It's not like there's an "algorithm" out there for designing software.

    What salem gave pretty much covers software development. There is no step-by-step process to follow. 90% of it is off the cuff. You use the documents and processes you need and what is required by your project.

    That is unless of course you work for a copmany that has a one size fits all mold for software, then buyer beware...
