The Newest IFPUG Book

Videos – Previews of Chapters In the IFPUG Metrics Book

The IFPUG Conference and Education Committee would like to remind you of a great resource – The book, The IFPUG Guide to IT and Software Measurement.

Authors from 13 different countries came together to share their insights and expertise. Covering measurement programs, function points in measurement, new technologies, and metrics analysis, these software measurement experts have  created an exceptional guide.   This volume:

  • Illustrates software measurement’s role in new and emerging technologies
  • Addresses the impact of agile development on software measurement
  • Presents measurement as a powerful tool for auditing and accountability
  • Includes metrics for the CIO

We have asked the authors to prepare short videos giving you an overview of their chapters.

Some videos will be freely available, while the rest of the series will only  be available to IFPUG members, as part of the benefit of their membership.
